Etymologies

From calcium, binding, and -in. (Wiktionary)

Examples

  • For example, the calcium-binding protein calbindin, which is an excellent neurochemical marker for the morphological study of the human thalamus and its nuclear subdivisions

  • Primary antibody dilutions were as follows: anti-GM2 (1: 5), anti-GM3 (1: 50), anti-GM1 (1: 5000), anti-calbindin (1: 3000), and anti-CD68

  • The latter value of 9 ┬Ám was defined by measuring the size of 100 beta-tubulin labeled neurons that were both Pax-2 and calbindin-negative.

  • To distinguish embryonic PCs in the co-culture experiments, fluorescent double staining was used with rabbit anti-calbindin (1: 1500) and mouse anti-GFP antibodies (1: 700, Invitrogen).

  • (A-D) Elongating and arborizing phenotypes of calbindin-labeled (CaBP, red staining) embryonic Purkinje cells at 7 days in vitro in the postnatal environment in toto (A, B, E17+P0) or co-cultivated with granule cell monolayers (C, D, E17+GR).

  • PCs were identified on the basis of anti-calbindin positivity and only cells extending neurites were considered for survival analysis.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Co-expression of calbindin and GFP yielded orange staining.

  • Micrographs show calbindin-positive (CaBP) PCs at 7 days in vitro (DIV).
