Single-molecule Fluorescence in situ Hybridization (smFISH) for RNA Detection in Adherent Animal Cells
Authors:  Gal Haimovich and Jeffrey E. Gerst, date: 11/05/2018, view: 912, Q&A: 1
Transcription and RNA decay play critical roles in the process of gene expression and the ability to accurately measure cellular mRNA levels is essential for understanding this regulation. Here, we describe a single-molecule fluorescent in situ ...
Plasmid Extract from Budding Yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)
Author:  Gal Haimovich, date: 07/20/2018, view: 960, Q&A: 0
Plasmids are widely used tools in yeast research. In many cases, plasmid libraries are used in genetic screens or in yeast two hybrid screens. In such cases, it is necessary to extract plasmids carrying unknown genetic elements from positive clones ...

Ectopic Gene Expression in Macrophages Using in vitro Transcribed mRNA
Authors:  Pallavi Chandra and Jennifer A. Philips, date: 05/20/2018, view: 1275, Q&A: 0
Macrophages are immune cells that contribute to host defense through various mechanisms including phagocytosis and antigen presentation. Their antimicrobial capacity is subverted by clinically important intracellular pathogens such as Mycobacterium ...

Formation of Minimised Hairpin Template-transcribing Dumbbell Vectors for Small RNA Expression
Authors:  Xiaoou Jiang and Volker Patzel, date: 06/05/2017, view: 3423, Q&A: 0
A major barrier for using non-viral vectors for gene therapy is the short duration of transgene expression in postmitotic tissues. Previous studies showed transgene expression from conventional plasmid fell to sub-therapeutic level shortly after ...
