How to go about creating a stably-transfected cell line

... differentiate them into neurons using retinoic acid. I wish to create a stable clone expressing a GFP-fusion neurotransmitter receptor, of either NMDA-R or AMPA-R, but I am not very clear about what should be done. First off, how should I go about getting a suitable expression vector? I.e., what ...

Quick question on genes - thanks!

... and 20 of them make every protein in the body! Splicing also varies between cells - so some might want a AMPA receptor for glutamate and another a NMDA receptor - and so there will be differential splicing of the same gene in each of these cells. So the exons are being used for different codes ...

Curious... about the human brain...

... firing impulses even after the signal that came from a synapse is over. It is pretty complex and it involves some special receptors - AMPA and NMDA. I am lazy and won't explain it here. Google it if you want. 2. Define intelligence. Nobody has ever did that. What we do know is that the young ...
