Transfection is the introduction of DNA, RNA, or proteins into eukaryotic cells and is used in research to study and modulate gene expression. Thus, transfection techniques and protocols serve as an analytical tool that facilitates the characterization of genetic functions
Polyamino acids are able to adopt ordered conformations, such as α-helices and β-sheets, through cooperative hydrogen bonding. These conformations impart polyamino acids with various unique properties and functions in biological environments.
Learn more about relevant restriction site functions in the SnapFast™ plasmid system. All DNA sections are pre-screened, and where possible modified, to remove any of the restriction sites found within the core SnapFast plasmids to maintain their flexibility.
Transformation is the process by which exogenous DNA is introduced into a cell, resulting in a heritable change or genetic modification. This was first reported in Streptococcus pneumoniae by Griffith in 1928. Transforming principle of DNA was demonstrated by Avery
The 3xFLAG system is an improvement upon the original system by fusing 3 tandem FLAG® epitopes for a total of 22 amino acids. Detection of fusion proteins containing 3xFLAG is enhanced up to 200 times more than any other system.
Molecular cloning is the process of inserting the gene-of-interest (GOI) into a plasmid vector and this vector is then inserted into a cell that expresses the protein encoded by the GOI. Once protein is expressed in the cell, the protein
The SnapFast system is a versatile plasmid cloning platform that provides a range of functional DNA sequences in an easy to clone format. Hundreds of pre-designed DNA sections that can be easily incorporated into, or transferred between, our range of
Automation is used for many applications to reduce variation caused by manual handling and to obtain reproducible results in high-throughput assays. High-throughput applications, such as knockdown studies or target screenings, often include cell transfection.
