PPAR-[gamma] cellular localization and expression was assessed using fluorescent IHC and cellular fractionation analysis.
Cellular fractionation analysis was also used to study changes in PPAR-[gamma] protein localization after 1,6, and 24 hours of treatment (Figures 2(b) and 2(c)).
Cellular Fractionation. Wild type Hepa1c1c7 and AHR null HepaC12 cell lines were treated with vehicle (0.01% DMSO) or TCDD (10 nM)for 6 hrs.
Cellular fractionation experiments demonstrated a decreased mitochondrial pool of Mrpl40 after TCDD treatment in AHR expressing hepatoma cells.
Michael Kranda - CEO of Oxford said, "This collaboration combines Cellular Genomics' pre-eminent position in cell biology and cellular fractionation techniques with Oxford's leading position in high throughput protein characterisation technology ("Proteomics"), to map key new immune system proteins and to chart the key biochemical pathways of the immune system.
