Key factors in heart cell creation

Scientists at the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease have identified for the first time key genetic factors that drive the process of generating new heart cells.

Newly discovered epidermal growth factor receptor

A pathologist has identified an epidermal growth factor receptor aberrantly active in approximately a third of the 250 human pancreatic cancers studied.

New microbial DNA production reaction

A team of researchers has discovered a new chemical reaction for producing one of the four nucleotides, or building blocks, needed to build DNA.

Mimicry at the molecular level

A new study draws new parallels between the Rad60 DNA repair factor and SUMO, a small ubiquitin-like modifier, which are both essential for maintaining genome stability during replication.

Hiding dangerous DNA segments

Scientists report that Chp1, a histone-binding protein, helps recruit molecular machinery that establishes heterochromatin 'silencing' domains.

3D structures of human clock proteins

Researchers have been able to determine the molecular structure of a plant photolyase protein that is surprisingly similar to two...

Comprehensive proteome analysis

Scientists have deciphered a large percentage of the total protein complement in Schizosaccharomyces pombe (S. pombe) fission yeast.

Orientation of antenna in bacteria

Scientists have figured out the orientation of a protein in the antenna complex to its neighbouring membrane in a photosynthetic bacterium.

Preparative SFE/SFC System

JASCO is proud to announce the release of the new Preparative SFE/SFC system. This unit features a versatile modular design and excellent performance.

Cyclograph Deluxe Centrifuge Chromotography Device

The CycloGraph system is a centrifugally accelerated device for performing preparative thin layer radial separations.

Diagnosis of heart disease

A research team reports their initial experience with a novel imaging technique that enables comprehensive diagnosis of heart disease based on a single CT scan.

CagA induced disease

Cytotoxin-associated gene A protein from type I H.pylori has been proved by epidemiological and experimental studies to be closely associated with the H.pylori induced gastric diseases.

X-rays view nanoscale

Scientists have developed a lensless X-ray technique that can take images of ultra-small structures buried in nanoparticles and nanomaterials.

Kidney drugs promoted

Before a CT scan or angiogram, many people should take inexpensive drug to protect kidneys because agents that enhance the scans can harm vulnerable kidneys.

High-purity skids

In order to meet critical production requirements for a clinical trial of a new treatment for Pompe disease, high-purity skids for use in...

Checking polymorphic changes in filled chocolates

The consequence of the polymorphic nature of cocoa butter is that, when used in chocolate, the chocolate needs to be tempered in order to crystallise the cocoa butter in one of the stable forms – bV or bVI.

Protocols for sample preparation and analysis

To assist with proteomics research, Pall Life Sciences has developed a detailed application handbook containing a range of protocols for sample preparation and analysis.

Mass spectrometry

High-definition mass spectrometry system and a linear ion trap mass spectrometer feature electron transfer dissociation technology 

Standard file formats – taking mass spectrometry a step forward

Standard file formats are critical when immediate and easy access to a range of raw instrument data is required.

Application software for LC/MS portfolio

Agilent Technologies has introduced new application software for its 6000 Series portfolio of liquid chromatograph/mass spectrometer (LC/MS) systems.
