For the understanding of interactions in the muscle-growth directing myostatin-pathway and therefore also for the establishment of high sensitive detection strategies for gene-doping, detailed studies of protein concentration levels in biological matrices and appropriate highly sensitive analytic ...
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
The teleost zebrafish is a widely used model organism for the study of developmental and disease-related processes in vertebrates, including humans. Understanding these processes at a molecular and cellular level frequently requires the estimation of
A major problem in some areas of cancer research is the difficulty of transfecting a significant number of the cells of interest, while minimizing the cytotoxic or other off-target effects of the transfection event itself. It is well-known that the use of some transfection reagents results in ...
Efficient transfection of cells is a prerequisite for genetic manipulation. However, many cell lines remain hard to transfect with established protocols, hampering consecutive analysis. Here, we compare three different methods (FuGENE® HD Transfection Reagent, transfection reagent L, and calcium ...
The Universal ProbeLibrary (UPL) is a detection system for real-time PCR based on locked nucleic acid (LNA) probes. We tested the efficiency of the UPL for the quantification of maize transcripts on two detection platforms. The results indicate that
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 ...
Gene manipulation techniques are potentially powerful tools in many applications for human embryonic stem (ES) cell research
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
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 ...
