Luis David Gomez 59866865 Bio 192 D103 Cell Biology Week 2 Lecture 6 Outline 1/ 18/08 Cytoskeleton—General Principles Similar to our skeleton—3 Different Types of Fibers Action, MT, Intermediate Filaments Function Shape—Support Structure Movement—change of shape of the cell, and within the cell How do you do staining? Each cellular structure, such as organelles, are characterized by presence of specific marker proteins (ex: a-tubilin for microtubules) Purify Protein Inject into animal induces immune response, creates antibodies—from antigens Antibodies will lable particular structure If you know where the protein is, you can infer where the structure is located! Double-Stain Procedure DNA uses specific dyes 1)make antibody to protein (the protein is the antigen) in Species 1 add to cell (cells is fixed) 2) make antibody to 1 st antibody (called secondary antibody) add attach fluorescence in
