Endogenous ABA Extraction and Measurement from Arabidopsis Leaves
Authors:  Ning Liu, Yong Ding, Michael Fromm and Zoya Avramova, date: 10/05/2014, view: 10558, Q&A: 0
The endogenous messenger, the phytohormone abscisic acid (ABA) plays a major role in plant’s adaption to drought, salinity, cold and other abiotic stresses. In addition to abiotic stress signaling, ABA is involved also in developmental regulation ...

Simplified Epigenome Profiling Using Antibody-tethered Tagmentation
Authors:  Steven Henikoff, Jorja G. Henikoff and Kami Ahmad, date: 06/05/2021, view: 2220, Q&A: 0

We previously introduced Cleavage Under Targets & Tagmentation (CUT&Tag), an epigenomic profiling method in which antibody tethering of the Tn5 transposase to a chromatin epitope of interest maps specific chromatin features in small samples

mRNA Extraction from Gill Tissue for RNA-sequencing
Authors:  Jukka-Pekka Verta and Felicity Jones, date: 03/05/2020, view: 2965, Q&A: 0
Adaptation is thought to proceed in part through spatial and temporal changes in gene expression. Fish species such as the threespine stickleback are powerful vertebrate models to study the genetic architecture of adaptive changes in gene expression ...
