  • Biochemist developed way to silence genes that cause diseases

    Thanks to the ground-breaking research of 47-year-old German biochemist Thomas Tuschl, silencing genes is no longer a utopia. His method of switching off human genes is the basis for promising therapies to treat genetic disorders that trigger serious conditions such as haemophilia, amyloidosis, andp more

  • New gene responsible for cleft lip and palate syndrome identified

    An international team led by researchers from Karolinska Institutet in Sweden has identified a new gene related to the Van der Woude syndrome, the most common syndrome with cleft lip and palate. The study is published in the scientific periodical American Journal of Human Genetics and can lead the w more

  • Gene found to be crucial for formation of certain brain circuitry

    Using a powerful gene-hunting technique for the first time in mammalian brain cells, researchers at Johns Hopkins report they have identified a gene involved in building the circuitry that relays signals through the brain. The gene is a likely player in the aging process in the brain, the researcher more

  • Fugene® HD Transfection Reagent: Superior Performance for Challenging Expression Studies

    The ability to efficiently introduce foreign molecules into cells constitutes an important tool in any laboratory and facilitates studies of gene regulation and protein function. A plethora of transfection methods have been developed for transfer of DNA into mammalian and animal cells. Those methods either utilize the physicochemical properties of the vector-carrier of the DNA or use mammalian viruses. In the first group of methods, some classic techniques are well-known, such as: calcium phosphate, DEAE-dextran, electroporation liposome-mediated delivery, direct microinjection/biolistic particle delivery, and non-liposomal multi-component reagents. Viral vector systems use both DNA (Adeno-) and RNA (Retro-, Lenti-) viruses. more

  • Efficient Transfection of Primary Human Skeletal Myoblasts Using FuGENE® HD Transfection Reagent

    Transfection of cells is one of the main techniques used to influence gene expression. Most primary cells and human skeletal myoblasts (SkMC) in particular are very difficult to transfect, whereas for cell lines such as C2C12, many suitable transfection reagents and protocols are available. Few publications report successful transfection of human primary myoblasts using non-viral systems [1,2,3]. These methods include cationic lipids such as phosphono­lipids, electroporation, and a combination of liposome and adenoviral associated proteins. But transfection efficiency is low and often is a compromise between toxicity of the reagents and transfection efficiency. 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 [3], 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
