General description

Phosphate buffered saline is a non-toxic biological buffer generally containing sodium phosphate, sodium chloride, and potassium phosphate. It prevents cells from osmosis-mediated rupture or dehydration. PBS is widely used for washing cells, immunohistochemistry, and various other cellular techniques.

Application

Phosphate buffered saline has been used in sample preparation for quantifying the wound fluid proteins from pressure ulcers in patients with spinal cord injury (SCI). It has also been used for cell rinsing in various biological researches.

Single-cell DNA sequencing methods are challenged by poor physical coverage, high technical error rates and low throughput. To address these issues, we developed a single-cell DNA sequencing protocol that combines flow-sorting of single nuclei, time-limited multiple-displacement amplification (MDA), low-input library

Recent evidence indicates that specific RNAs promote the formation of ribonucleoprotein condensates by acting as scaffolds for RNA-binding proteins (RBPs). We systematically investigated RNA-RBP interaction networks to understand ribonucleoprotein assembly. We found that highly contacted RNAs are structured, have long UTRs
