During development, dendrites, and in particular dendritic filopodia, undergo extensive structural remodeling, presumably to help establish synaptic contacts. Here, we investigated the role of calcium signaling in dendritic plasticity by simultaneously recording calcium dynamics and filopodial growth in rat hippocampal slice cultures. Local calcium(More)
Measuring the states of cell signaling pathways in tumor samples promises to advance the understanding of oncogenesis and identify response biomarkers. Here, we describe the use of Reverse Phase Protein Arrays (RPPAs or RPLAs) to profile signaling proteins in 56 breast cancers and matched normal tissue. In RPPAs, hundreds to thousands of lysates are arrayed(More)
