  • Publication number: 20240060963
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods and compositions based on a non-naturally occurring nucleic acid construct encoding a fusion protein for quantitating levels of secretion in a single cell which may comprise a protein sequence which may comprise a cytoplasmic domain, a transmembrane domain and a vesicular domain, wherein the vesicular domain may comprise a protein tag sequence, wherein upon expression of the fusion protein by a cell, the fusion protein localizes to the membrane of a secretory vesicle such that the protein tag localizes to the lumen of the secretory vesicle, and wherein the protein tag binds to a cell-impermeable marker; whereby upon secretion of the contents of the secretory vesicle, the protein tag is exposed to the cell-impermeable marker, the fusion protein is recycled back into the cell, and the single cell becomes labeled with the marker relative to the amount of secretion.

  • Publication number: 20230415625
    Abstract: The present application relates to an arm rest trash compartment. An arm rest assembly includes an arm rest body having an A-surface with a trash cavity defined therethrough; and a trash compartment corresponding to the trash cavity. The trash compartment includes a movable member releasably secured at the A-surface, and a flexible member which forms the trash cavity. The trash compartment has a stored position and an extended position, where, in the stored position, the movable member is flush with the A-surface, and in the extended position, at least a portion of the flexible member is positioned below the A-surface such that a trash cavity volume in the extended position is greater than a trash cavity volume in the stored position.
