PNGase Sensitivity Assay to Study the Folding Status of Proteins
Authors:  Satoshi Ninagawa and Kazutoshi Mori, date: 10/05/2016, view: 2537, Q&A: 0
This protocol aims to evaluate folding status of proteins, utilizing peptide:N-glycanase (PNGase) sensitivity. In the cytosol, PNGase works as a deglycosylation-enzyme. N-glycans on unfolded/misfolded proteins are more susceptible to PNGase than ...

Simple Methods for Screening and Statistical Analysis of Leaf Epidermal Cells in Dicotyledonous Plants
Authors:  Jian-Jun Tao, Shou-Yi Chen and Jin-Song Zhang, date: 09/05/2016, view: 3708, Q&A: 0
Leaf epidermal cell size and number are positively correlated to leaf area. Stomata are specialized epidermal cells vital for gas exchange and water transpiration. So, observation and statistical analysis of the leaf epidermal cells are valuable for ...

Extraction and 16S rRNA Sequence Analysis of Microbiomes Associated with Rice Roots
Authors:  Joseph Edwards, Christian Santos-Medellín and Venkatesan Sundaresan, date: 06/20/2018, view: 464, Q&A: 0
Plant roots associate with a wide diversity of bacteria and archaea across the root-soil spectrum. The rhizosphere microbiota, the communities of microbes in the soil adjacent to the root, can contain up to 10 billion bacterial cells per gram of ...
