EMT Reporter Models for Cancer Research: A Window into Invasion and Metastasis

This webinar examines a groundbreaking tool for scientists studying epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and its reverse. We used CRISPR technology to engineer EMT and MET reporter cell lines to monitor this transition. The data discussed here confirmed that the gene-edited cell lines’ fluorescent signal brightened or dimmed appropriately when undergoing EMT or MET.

Extracellular Vesicles: For Better and For Worse

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) such as exosomes are critical mediators of intercellular communication. The diverse biological cargo that is associated with these vesicles is believed to mediate the pleiotropic effects of EVs. This webinar explains the difference between damaging and reparative extracellular vesicles and shows data characterizing how these exosomes can be used in diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
