MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are naturally occurring, highly conserved families of transcripts (18-25 nt in length) that are processed from larger hairpin precursors. Both plant and animal genomes encode miRNAs, and to date, there are over 4000 mature miRNA tr
More flexibility, more breakthrough applications - Roche continues to unlock the sequencing secrets that will change the world
In 2005, the Genome Sequencer 20 System was introduced into the global life science market. Based on the revolutionary 454 sequencing technology, this system is able to generate hundreds of thousands of sequence reads in a few hours at a fraction of
The Rapid Translation System (RTS) represents a cell-free system that allows efficient production of protein from linear DNA sequences. This article gives a brief outline of the use of the RTS technology in linear epitope mapping and shows its promise for reducing time-consuming cloning and ...
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
The Genome Sequencer 20 System is an ultra-high-throughput automated DNA sequencing system capable of carrying out and monitoring sequencing reactions in a massively parallel fashion. Since the Genome Sequencer 20 System provides a complete solution
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 ...
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 ...
High-Quality Tool for Demanding Applications
Preparation of RNA, free from DNA, is a critical step before performing RT-PCR assays. Total RNA isolated from several sources using routine methodologies is frequently contaminated with DNA that can give rise to amplification products, which mimic the amplicons expected from RNA targets. DNase I ...
FastStart DNA MasterPLUS SYBR Green I Kit in Highly Sensitive Transcript Quantification
Real-time reverse transcription-PCR (RT-PCR) is considered the method of choice for any experiments requiring sensitive, specific, and reproducible quantification of mRNA molecules of interest. It is an essential tool for basic research, molecular medicine, and biotechnology.
Partial degradation of RNA is a common problem when working with FFPET samples. Semi-quantitative RT-PCR assays amplifying the 5´- and 3´-end sequences of the housekeeping gene b-actin present a solution: calculating the ratio of the 3´- to 5´-ampli
