    Modifications in the Transformation Step of Commercially Available Site-directed Mutagenesis Kit Increase Its Price-performance
    Site-directed mutagenesis helps unravel the relationship between the structure and function of a protein at the level of amino acid contributions. Many techniques have been established to carry out site-directed mutagenesis on a daily routine. ...
    Fluorescence Immunolocalization in Mitotic Chromosome Spreads from Maize Embryos
    Authors:  Jing-Han Liu, Ya-zhong Wang, Lin Chen and Yan He, date: 06/20/2019, view: 325, Q&A: 0
    Immunolocalization is a necessary technique in the study of chromosome structure and function. It can provide important information for better understanding the relation between epigenetic modifications and chromosome condensation. In this protocol, ...
    Isolation of PCR-quality Genomic DNA from Soils Impacted with Extra Heavy Crude Oil
    For the study of microbial communities in samples of soils impacted with extra heavy crude oil, it is necessary to perform molecular analyses. Due to the difficulty of oil matrix handling, there are very few protocols reported in writing. Also, one ...
    Heat Induced Epitope Retrieval (HIER) Assisted Protein Immunostaining in Maize
    Authors:  Katsutoshi Tsuda and George Chuck, date: 06/05/2019, view: 280, Q&A: 0
    Protein immunostaining provides important spatio-temporal information about gene expression. Even using high quality antibodies, signal reproducibility and specificity can be problematic depending on tissue fixation methods. For example, ...
    Western Blot in Maize
    Author:  María Jazmín Abraham-Juárez, date: 06/05/2019, view: 674, Q&A: 0
    Since its introduction in 1979 (Towbin et al., 1979), protein blotting (Western blot) has become a routine tool in molecular biology research. It is used to detect low amounts of proteins in complex samples or to monitor protein expression ...
    Protein Immunoprecipitation in Maize
    Author:  María Jazmín Abraham-Juárez, date: 06/05/2019, view: 326, Q&A: 0
    Protein immunoprecipitation (IP) is a method used to identify cellular protein complexes. Whence, antibodies that specifically recognize a native bait protein or an epitope tag fused to the protein of interest allow the protein of interest to be ...
    Efficient Assembly of Large Multiplex CRISPR/Cas9 Guide Arrays for Maize Genome Editing
    Authors:  Jarrett Man and Madelaine E. Bartlett, date: 05/05/2019, view: 819, Q&A: 0
    CRISPR/Cas9-based genome editing in maize is an effective tool, and researchers commonly wish to target multiple genes simultaneously. Transformation of maize is currently expensive and tedious, so researchers are incentivized to build vectors that ...
    Protein- and Sequencing-based Massively Parallel Single-cell Approaches to Gene Expression Profiling
    Authors:  Xuhuai Ji, Igor Goncharov, Miao Zhao, Molly Miranda and Holden T. Maecker, date: 02/05/2019, view: 1814, Q&A: 0
    Understanding cellular diversity and dynamics in immune cells are critical for elucidating mechanisms of diagnosis, response to therapeutics, and patient prognosis. Our goal is to apply a technically simple approach for gene expression cytometry ...
