  • "Funnel" attracts bonding partners to biomolecule

    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

  • 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

  • Analysis of the DNA Methylation Patterns at the BRCA1 CpG Island

    Germ-line alterations of the BRCA1 gene confer a lifetime risk of 40% for ovarian cancers and of 40%-80% for ­breast cancers. It is likely that BRCA1 acts as a tumor suppressor gene. BRCA1 involvement in breast cancers does not seem to be restricted to familial cancers. Despite the absence of somatic mutations in the breast tissues, a down regulation of BRCA1 expression is associated with malignancy in human sporadic breast cancers. more

  • Quantification of BRCA1 Expression Level Using Standard RT-PCR Reagents - a Sensitive Method for the Detection of Low Amounts of Transcripts

    Mutations in the breast cancer susceptibility gene, BRCA1, occur in the majority of families with multiple members affected with breast or ovarian cancer. Women who inherit a BRCA1 mutation have 40%-80% risk of developing breast cancer or ovarian cancer. However, up to 90% of breast cancers are sporadic, and mutations in BRCA1 seem to be a rare event in sporadic breast tumors. more

  • Enzymatic Protein Digest for Mass-spectrometric Analysis

    The main focus in proteomic studies is on the identification of proteins in given biological samples. Proteins isolated and separated from a given sample (e.g., whole cell lysates, blood or tissue, protein complexes) by immunoprecipitation or affinity chromatography or two-dimensional electrophoresis must be proteolytically cleaved in the course of sample preparation for identification and characterization. A reproducible cleavage pattern of digested proteins is a prerequisite for the unambiguous identification of these proteins by mass spectrometry (MS). more
