2022 CPUB Abstract Guidelines

1) The deadline for abstract submission is MARCH 31 at midnight. All abstracts must be submitted by the presenter during the registration process.  Abstracts should be emailed to CPUB2022@lockhaven.edu.
2) Abstracts must be uploaded as Microsoft Word documents with a .doc or .docx file extension.
3) Please avoid the use of special characters or diacritical marks, if possible. Italicizing (Genus species or gene names) is fine. The required font is Times New Roman, 12 point.
4) Please underline the presenting author’s name for the abstract. One of the authors should be a CPUB faculty member who mentored the student author(s) and should be indicated with an asterisk (*) following the faculty member’s name.
5) The first line should be the authors and year. The second line should be the title (italicized). The third line should be the name of the university, followed by the city, state, and zip code. Leave the next space empty, followed by the abstract.
6) If the study was supported by a CPUB grant, please indicate that.
7) Please keep the abstract at or below 350 words, including title, authors, and affiliations.
8) Indicate if you are an undergraduate or graduate student.
9) Indicate the type of presentation (platform or poster) and the category in which you would like it to be placed: cellular/molecular, ecology/organismal, secondary education.
10) Please indicate if you would not like your presentation to be judged for an award.
11) If you are presenting a poster, please upload the PDF of your poster and MP4 of your poster recording to the Poster Forum on the Conference D2L shell by April 6, 2022.

Analyzing protein-protein interaction in zebrafish kidney stem cells
Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Indiana, PA 15705

Kidney disease is a major health concern and 20 million people in the U.S. are affected. Current treatments include kidney transplantation and dialysis, but both have severe limitations. So, there is a need for new approaches such as stem cell therapies. While humans cannot regenerate their kidneys, zebrafish have stem cells that allow them to regenerate their kidneys after injury. These stem cells express the gene lhx1a. To determine how lhx1a is important for kidney stem cells, we set out to identify other proteins that interact with the lhx1a protein. For this, we will perform a yeast two-hybrid selection that uses lhx1a as a “bait” protein. A library of “prey” proteins will then be used to identify the protein(s) that interact with the lhx1a protein. Identifying lhx1a-interacting proteins will give insight into understanding how kidney stem cells are regulated in zebrafish and may help design future regenerative therapies in humans.

This project was supported by a CPUB grant.
