Course:  

Xenopus laevis model system/TEVC electrophysiology

Short description:   The history and various applications of the Xenopus laevis model system will be presented. These include the use in stem cell and developomental research as well as the use of Xenopuss laevis oocytes as protein expression system for biochemical and electrophysiological experiments (including voltage clamp fluorometry). The related  exercise will then focus on the expression and electrophysiological analysis of ligand-gated ion channels in Xenopus oocytes. Here, the students will perform oocyte injection and recordings and learn to plan an experiment, design a recording protocol, evaluate the recordings, and analyze the recorded data. Thus students will aquire manual skills as well as technical understanding. They are encouraged to make decisions and use their creativity.
Credit points:   2 CP / 2-3 days
Number of students:   6 Students

Supervisor/s:   Rene Werner (r.werner@uke.de)
     
Name:   VII-MS-13
Course:   Detection and characterization of antigen-specific T-cells.
Short description:   The identification of antigen-specific T cells (i.e. T cells that are directed against a specific pathogen or tumor antigen) represents a methodological challenge because of the low frequency of such cells within the circulating T cell pool. An additional restriction is imposed be the fact that most traditional methods of identifying antigen-speciric T cells (i.e. tetramer staining or similar methods) are dependent on the HLA haplotype of the donor. In this methods course we will expore different HLA-independent ways of identifying antigen-specific T cells and discuss their relative strengths and weaknesses.
