Differential mobility cytometry (DMC) has recently been established as a powerful method to capture cells and study adhesion processes. DMC uses an oscillation system and cell affinity chromatography to monitor cells as they adhere to a surface. In the past, differential images had to be created individually which limited the throughput of the method. A new method to create differential images is presented. The method involves the subtraction of short movies from each other to create a stack of differential images that can be easily analyzed. In the future, this method will make DMC more accessible and improve throughput.

    T-cadherin is a unique member of the cadherin superfamily that shares the ectodomain organization with classical cadherins, but lacks both transmembrane and cytoplasmic regions and is instead anchored to the plasma membrane through a glycosyl-phosphatidylinositol (GPI) moiety. The function of...

    ON human endothelial cells from umbilical cord (HUVEC) are present, in addition to E-and P-selectins, their cognate ligands. Differently from selectins, the ligand expression is constitutive and not modulated by interleukin-1 beta . Such ligands appear to be different from the ones present in...
