To prevent or minimize peptide degradation we recommend storing the peptide in lyophilized form at –20 °C or –80 °C. Once in solution, the peptide/protein should be stored frozen in individual aliquots to avoid freeze-thaw cycles. Also, prolonged exposure to
We deliver the broadest selection available of carcinogenic and chemopreventive biochemicals, as well as research reagents and kits for apoptosis, angiogenesis, biomarker identification, metabolomics, and functional genomics.
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a family of closely related growth factors having a conserved pattern of eight cysteine residues and sharing common VEGF receptors. VEGF-A (VEGF) is a potent growth factor for blood vessel endothelial cells, showing pleiotropic
The use of hydrogel-based biomaterials for the delivery and recruitment of cells to promote tissue regeneration in the body is of growing interest. This article discussed the application of hydrogels in cell delivery and tissue regeneration.
In recent years, the biological processes involved in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) have become increasingly better understood. It is now recognized that a key role is played by BACE1 proteases that cleave amyloid precursor protein (APP) to produce
Epigenetics is a term coined to describe changes that are not mutation based but can still be passed on from generation to generation. Genes that are activated or repressed without any change in DNA sequence are epigenetically controlled. Epigenetic modifications
