General description

Silica gel orange (Drying pearls Orange) is a commonly employed drying agent.


Silica gel orange (Drying pearls Orange) may be used to provide long-term storage conditions in the following studies:
  • Multiwell plates in a gel drying box during the solid-phase reverse transfection on cell microarrays.
  • Robust protocol for the reverse transfection of cells on small interfering (siRNA) arrays.
It was used to compose the spotting solution of transfection array.

Leonurine is an active alkaloid that is extracted from Traditional Chinese Medicine Herba leonuri. Emerging evidence indicates that leonurine produces neuroprotective effects in ischemic stroke, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's disease. However, the effect of leonurine in neuropsychiatric disorders, especially in...

Emerging evidence indicates that NLRP3 inflammasome-induced inflammation plays a crucial role in the pathogenesis of depression. Thus, inhibition of NLRP3 inflammasome activation may offer a therapeutic benefit in the treatment of depression. Metformin has been shown to have potential anti-inflammatory...
