N-terminal vs C-terminal FLAG-tagged HTT

The experimental set-up and results covered in this post can be found here: 10.5281/zenodo.1202292 In my previous post, I used baculovirus to overexpress HTT in mammalian cells. Although I managed to overexpress HTT, this HTT is actually FLAG-tagged, and very strangely, I could not detect FLAG! Let me first explain what a FLAG-tag is. FLAG is Read More …

Overexpressing HTT in mammalian cells

The experimental set-up and results covered in this post can be found here: 10.5281/zenodo.1172644   One of the main aims of my project is to understand the role of normal and mutant HTT in mammalian cells. To do so, I will be overexpressing HTT in mammalian cells using baculovirus. The use of baculovirus for protein expression Read More …

Project Overview: Role of HTT in neurological disorders

Hi everyone! As part of SGC’s Extreme Open Science program, I’m going to be giving live updates on my project on the role of HTT in neurological disorders. As this is my first blogpost, I’ll start by giving an overview of my project. The focus of my project is HTT and its role in neurological Read More …
