Water is a ubiquitous solvent in all life sciences – sometimes referred to as the "matrix of life". Contrary to earlier assumptions, it is not a passive witness of biochemical processes; rather, it participates in them actively. By influencing the movement of water molecules surrounding their bindin more
"Funnel" attracts bonding partners to biomolecule
First living organism that transmits added letters in DNA 'alphabet'
Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have engineered a bacterium whose genetic material includes an added pair of DNA "letters," or bases, not found in nature. The cells of this unique bacterium can replicate the unnatural DNA bases more or less normally, for as long as the molecular more
Rapid and detailed analysis of proteins
Proteins are vital participants in virtually all life processes, including growth, repair and signaling in cells; catalysis of chemical reactions and defense against infection. For these reasons, proteins can provide critical signposts of health and disease, provided they can be identified and asses more
Quantitative Detection of Legionella pneumophila in Water Samples: Assay Transfer to the LightCycler® 480 Real-Time PCR System
An assay to detect and quantify Legionella spp. in water samples was successfully transferred from a capillary-based LightCycler® Instrument to the novel multiwell plate-based LightCycler® 480 System. A previously described protocol was easily adapted by modifying the fluorescent label of the detection probe to match the filter set of the LightCycler® 480 Instrument. While reproducibility and analytical sensitivity of the assay were found to be comparable on both systems, the novel plate-based instrument allowed for higher sample throughput and reduced assay time per sample. more
siRNA Silencing of Lamin A and Quantification of the Knockdown Effect via qPCR
Lamins are structural proteins which form a thin fibrous layer called the nuclear lamina. Currently, three types of lamins are known in mammalian cells: lamin A, B, and C. Lamins may be involved in DNA replication, chromatin organization, differentiation, nuclear structural support, nuclear envelope reassembly, and several other processes. Mutations of lamin A can cause muscular dystrophy, dilated cardiomyopathy, familiar partial lipodystrophy , and other disorders. For the detailed analysis of the different functions of this more than 70 kDa large protein, the expression should be blocked. more
Do you see the complete picture?
Gel permeation chromatography (GPC) or also named size exclusion chromatography (SEC) is the most often used method for determining the molecular weight of natural and synthetic macromolecules. One specific strength of this method lies in the fact that by the separation process the whole molecular weight distribution is obtained. The molecular weight distribution contains much larger information for the characterization of polymer samples compared to a single value. more
