Process to Transfer Cells to a Membrane in Order to Visualize the Protein 1

This photograph shows Toshiyuki Yamasita, Ph.D., and Yumi Yamashita, Ph.D., working with dyes to visualize proteins on a membrane. The principal investigator for this work is Juan Rivera, Ph.D., Chief of the Molecular Inflammation Section. The work in this laboratory is directed towards understanding how allergenic agents and immune complexes activate one particular family of receptors (Fc receptors) and, through them, ultimately control the genes that produce the signals (cytokines) that in turn recruit other cells in the inflammatory response. The photograph was taken in the Molecular Inflammation Section of the Molecular Immunology and Inflammation Branch at the Clinical Research Center on the NIH Campus.
