MFP fluorescent dyes are ready for coupling to proteins and nucleic acids, and span the wavelength spectrum from green to far red. They offer photostability, a strong absorption, high fluorescence quantum yield and good water solubility.
Recombinant mouse proteins MBL-1 and MBL-2 are available from R&D Systems. Mannan binding lectin (MBL) belongs to the collectin family of innate immune defense proteins that bind an array of carbohydrate patterns on pathogen surfaces.
Information management system OrchestratorIMS (pictured, from NextGen Sciences) is fully compatible with cloning techniques such as Gateway, TOPO and traditional methods.
Workstation facilitates protein applications
Jupiter Proteo 90Å-pore HPLC column from Phenomenex is offered for the analysis of peptide maps. Peptide fragments produced in a tryptic digest of a protein often exhibit significantly complex patterns, differing markedly from protein to protein.
