Monoclonal antibody offered to glutamate NMDA Receptor subunits 3A and 3B recognizes both NR3A and NR3B subunits in Western Blot and immunohistochemistry applications. NR3B is the final member of the NMDA subtype of the glutamate receptor (NMDAR) family to be cloned and characterized.
The Web site http://www.mutationdiscovery.com has been updated with a new database reflecting genetic variations in the mouse. The site includes the genomic DNA sequences of almost 23,000 human genes and annotated information on variations that have been observed in these genes.
Microwave fixation quickly and effectively halts brain chemical activity. Several important brain chemicals, including acetylcholine, dopamine, DARPP-32, HVA, and c-AMP begin changing rapidly at death.
FIA-SIA-LOV Sequential Injection Analyzer combines a computer-controlled six-position valve, precision syringe pump, and spectrophotometric flow cell that automates wet-chemistry lab procedures.
Colorimetric and fluorescent assays and biosensors detect viruses, bacteria, parasites, and other pathogens. They consist of biologically or chemically specific receptor ligands attached to a polydiacetylene backbone.
Custom monoclonal and polyclonal antibody development through genetic immunization involves direct immunization of the host animal with plasmid DNA encoding a protein of interest. The immunized host then produces the encoded protein and raises antibodies.
Global 2019 rodent diet is designed to improve reproduction and performance of genetically engineered mice and other poorly performing rodents. It contains 19% protein and 9% fat content, and meets the nutrient requirements of gestation, lactation, and early growth of rats and mice.
The Library of Pharmacologically-Active Compounds (LOPAC 1280 ) is a collection of 1,280 characterized small ligands used for assay validation and orphan receptor characterization.
RNAi targets gene silencing, and is achieved in mammalian cells through the use of short interfering RNA molecules, or siRNAs. RNAi has accelerated the functional characterization of disease-relevant genes for drug discovery and basic research efforts.
Adiponectin (Acrp30), an adipocyte-specific secreted protein, circulates in plasma and plays a role in various physiological processes, such as energy homeostasis and obesity. Active recombinant human, mouse, and rat adiponectin was expressed using perspective adiponectin of cDNA.
VWR and VWR Signature heated and refrigerated circulators featuring enhanced electronics that allow intuitive, user-friendly programming and control.
Ambion, Inc. (Austin, Tex. and Cenix BioScience GmbH (Dresden, Germany) have announced that siRNA designs have been completed for more than 98% of all human, mouse, and rat genes listed in the public RefSeq database.
