Preparation of HeLa Total Membranes and Assay of Lipid-inhibition of Serine Palmitoyltransferase Activity
Serine palmitoyltranferase (SPT) is a pyridoxal 5′ phosphate (PLP)-dependent enzyme that catalyzes the first and rate-limiting step of de novo synthesis of sphingolipids. SPT activity is homeostatically regulated in response to increased ...

Capillary Nano-immunoassay for Quantification of Proteins from CD138-purified Myeloma Cells
Authors:  Irena Misiewicz-Krzeminska, Isabel Isidro and Norma C. Gutiérrez, date: 06/20/2019, view: 5454, Q&A: 0
Protein analysis in bone marrow samples from patients with multiple myeloma (MM) has been limited by the low concentration of proteins obtained after CD138+ cell selection. A novel approach based on capillary nano-immunoassay could make ...
