Lentivirus Cell Line
Using lentivirus as a means to deliver shRNAs has become standard practice in many labs exploring RNAi.
CRISPR Essentials: MISSION® CRISPR gRNAs, Cas9 and Related Products
Compare and contrast the features of a wide variety of guide RNA (gRNA) and Cas9 products for in vitro and in vivo CRISPR experiments.
Water for Nuclease-sensitive Molecular Biology Studies
Nuclease-free water (or PCR water) is needed in molecular biology to avoid sample degradation during PCR, sequencing, etc. Ultrafiltration provides a quicker, safer, and more sustainable alternative to DEPC treatment when preparing RNase-free and DNase-free water.
Methods for Enhancing Lentiviral Transduction Efficiency
Methods for lentiviral transduction of Jurkat cells were compared. Spinoculation was compared with overnight incubation with polybrene (hexadimethrine bromide) and fibronection-coated plates.
Safe Lentivirus Handling
Lentiviral vector systems prioritize safety features, with design precautions preventing replication. Good handling practices are essential for use.
