    QsRNA-seq: A protocol for Generating Libraries for High-throughput Sequencing of Small RNAs
    Authors:  Alla Fishman and Ayelet T. Lamm, date: 03/05/2019, view: 298, Q&A: 0
    Small RNAs (sRNAs) are 20-30 nt long non-coding RNA molecules that regulate essentially all cellular processes. Besides being an intensively studied topic in academic research, sRNAs also hold a promise as clinical biomarkers. While the need for ...

    [Abstract] Small RNAs (sRNAs) are 20-30 nt long non-coding RNA molecules that regulate essentially all cellular processes. Besides being an intensively studied topic in academic research, sRNAs also hold a promise as clinical biomarkers. While the need for expressional profiling of sRNAs is growing, preparation of sRNA libraries for high-throughput ...
    DNA Immunization Using in vivo Electroporation for Generating Monoclonal Antibodies Against Mouse IL-9R
    [Abstract] Membrane proteins such as cytokine receptors and G protein-coupled receptors can be drug targets. Recently, we have generated specific monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against the mouse IL-9 receptor (IL-9R) and found that IL-9R on memory B cells have critical roles in T-dependent immune response. So far, most antibodies against cell surface proteins ...
    Preparing Single-cell DNA Library Using Nextera for Detection of CNV
    Authors:  Larry Xi, Patrick Leong and Aleksandar Mihajlovic, date: 02/20/2019, view: 321, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Single-cell DNA sequencing is a powerful tool to evaluate the state of heterogeneity of heterogeneous tissues like cancer in a quantitative manner that bulk sequencing can never achieve. DOP-PCR (Degenerate Oligonucleotide-Primed Polymerase Chain Reaction), MDA (Multiple Displacement Amplification), MALBAC (Multiple Annealing and Looping-Based ...
    Analysis of Early Phase HIV-1 Replication and Integration Events by Using Real-time PCR
    Authors:  Graf Laura, Steven P. Moran, Sally Ro, Carlos M.C. de Noronha and Binshan Shi, date: 02/20/2019, view: 325, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Upon entry into a host cell, the HIV-1 virus undergoes a series of critical early replication events including reverse transcription, nuclear import, and integration of its cDNA into the host genome. Molecular assays used to detect and analyze changes in HIV-1 early phase replication events are valuable tools in developing potential antiretroviral ...
    Rapid Multiplexed Reduced Representation Bisulfite Sequencing Library Prep (rRRBS)
    Authors:  Lisa-Marie Legault, Donovan Chan and Serge McGraw, date: 02/20/2019, view: 437, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] DNA methylation is a common mechanism of epigenetic regulation involved in transcriptional modulation and genome stability. With the evolution of next-generation sequencing technologies, establishing quantitative genome-wide DNA methylation profiles is becoming routine in many laboratories. However, many of these approaches take several days to ...
    pNP Transgenic RNAi System Manual in Drosophila
    Authors:  Fang Wang, Huan-Huan Qiao, Rong-Gang Xu, Jin Sun, Ruibao Zhu, Decai Mao and Jian-Quan Ni , date: 02/05/2019, view: 413, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Much of our knowledge about the mechanisms underlying biological processes relies on genetic approaches, whereby gene activity is reduced and the phenotypic consequences of perturbation are analyzed in detail. For functional genomic studies, a specific, systematic, and cost-effective manner is critical. Transgenic RNAi system is the top priority ...
    In vitro Protein-DNA Binding Assay (AlphaScreen® Technology)
    Authors:  Mika Nomoto, Yasuomi Tada and Hironaka Tsukagoshi, date: 02/05/2019, view: 626, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Identification of specific DNA binding sites of transcription factors is important in understanding their functions. Recent techniques allow us to investigate genome-wide in vivo binding positions by chromatin immunoprecipitation combined with high-throughput sequencing. However, to further explore the binding motifs of transcription ...
    Imaging Higher-order Chromatin Structures in Single Cells Using Stochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscopy
    Authors:  Jianquan Xu and Yang Liu, date: 02/05/2019, view: 637, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Higher-order chromatin organization shaped by epigenetic modifications influence the chromatin environment and subsequently regulate gene expression. Direct visualization of the higher-order chromatin structure at their epigenomic states is of great importance for understanding chromatin compaction and its subsequent effect on gene expression and ...
    Flip-flop Mediated Conditional Gene Inactivation in Drosophila
    Authors:  Sathiya N. Manivannan, Priyanka Pandey and Sonal Nagarkar-Jaiswal, date: 02/05/2019, view: 482, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Mosaic analysis in Drosophila, an important tool to assess cellular phenotypes of mutants in an otherwise heterozygous background, relies on mitosis. Hence, it cannot be used to inactivate gene function in mitotically inactive, terminally differentiated cells such as neurons. To address this issue, we developed “Flip-flop”, a novel, ...
    Measurement of Redox States of the β3 Integrin Disulfide Bonds by Mass Spectrometry
    Author:  Joyce Chiu, date: 02/05/2019, view: 468, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Functional disulfide bonds mediate a change in protein function in which they reside when cleaved or formed. To elucidate how a functional disulfide bond controls protein activity, it is critical that the redox state of the bond in the population of protein molecules is known. Measurement of changes in disulfide bond redox state relies on thiol ...
