Because proteins perform the vast majority of cellular functions, it is critical for cells to regulate protein levels precisely. While gene expression is a multi-step process in which DNA information is copied first into RNA (transcription) and then translated into protein, regulation of specific protein levels is accomplished primarily through control of transcription

Interest in characterizing novel proteins has led to an explosion in gene expression techniques. Whether used for therapy, experimentation, or biomanufacturing, gene expression is about producing proteins.
Terminator Exonuclease is a 5'-3' exonuclease that digests RNA with a 5'-phosphate such as prokaryotic 16S and 23S rRNA. Primary prokaryotic RNA transcripts (mRNAs) with a 5'-triphosphate are resistant to degradation.
RNeasy kits (Qiagen, Inc.) facilitate purification of pure, intact microRNA. Two protocols that work with existing RNeasy Kits are available.
Four reagents kits are offered for quantitative pcr and reverse transcription pcr. &GO Mastermixes simplify real-time analysis of DNA, cDNA and RNA and are supplied as complete 5× mixes, a format that minimizes pipetting and the potential for contamination.
New twin.tec 96-well plates are manufactured using technology that combines a polycarbonate frame for mechanical stability and a precise seal that prevents evaporation with polypropylene wells for maximum sample recovery.
Little Dipper benchtop workstation automates the processing of microarrays. It consists of a rotary robotic arm that moves racks of arrays through five independently temperature controlled waterbaths into an integral centrifuge.
GeneGnome automated image analyzers come with a 16-bit cooled camera inside a compact, light-tight cabinet and a new white light source.
SURVEYOR Mutation Detection Kits, for universal primer capillary electrophoresis, contain two key components: SURVEYOR Nuclease, a mismatch-specific endonuclease derived from celery, and fluorescent universal FKS primer, which can be used to label any PCR product.
