radiolabeled protein uptake
Posted 14 May 2010 - 07:36 AM
I have to study the uptake process of a radiolabeled protein in adherent cell cultures, but I have no experience in the field. Can anyone give me some practical suggestions or suggest a basic protocol?
Thank you in advance for help!

Your best bet is to find someone experienced to sit alongside so that you can learn by example. There are all sorts of little things that can make your radioactive work run much more smoothly with less exposure to radiation and less risk of contaminating lots of stuff.

We have special rooms dedicated to radioactivity and our technician can give me indications for working safe. I was searching for a protocol to correctly perform a test, for example you may need to detach cells from plates with trypsin or they can be dissolved by a particular solvent mixture?
What kind of tubes I have to use?...and so on.
I hope you can help me, thank you.
