  • Glutamate uncaging on dendritic spines
    Name: Anonymous
    Assay Type: In Vitro
    Cell Line/Tissue: Organotypic Hippocampus Slices
    We buy this product in bulk for use in all of our uncaging experiments. High frequency uncaging next to dendritic spine head induces reliable spine growth, indicative of synapse strengthening.
    We resuspend in ACSF and found that we can freeze and reuse the solution. However, when suspended in HBSS it is no longer effective after freezing.
