Drug transport assays in a 96-well system: reproducibility and correlation to human absorption
Application note on Drug transport assays in a 96-well system using Millicell-96 System from Millipore.
Inhibition of Nucleic Acid Synthesis by Antibiotics
Quinolones are a key group of antibiotics that interfere with DNA synthesis by inhibiting topoisomerase, most frequently topoisomerase II (DNA gyrase), an enzyme involved in DNA replication.
Although actin is one of the most conserved eukaryotic proteins, it is expressed as six isoforms characterized by electrophoresis and amino acid sequence analysis. Four of the six isoforms represent differentiation markers of muscle tissues. The other two are found

Nanodisc Technology: A Revolutionary System for Study of Membrane Proteins
Read our article about how the Nanodisc system allows for structural studies of membrane proteins.
Folic Acid Metabolism in Cancer
This issue of Biofiles reviews some of our newest and most innovative technologies and their specific applications toward cancer research. In preparing this issue of Biofiles, one is reminded how complex the disease of cancer is, and how difficult it
Interleukin Family (IL)
The Interleukins comprise a disparate group of cytokines and growth factors that are produced by and released from leukocytes. Interleukin-1β (1L-1β) is released primarily from stimulated macrophages and monocytes and plays a key role in inflammatory and immune responses and
DNA Damage and Repair
DNA damage and repair mechanism is vital for maintaining DNA integrity. Damage to cellular DNA is involved in mutagenesis, the development of cancer among others.
Troponin together with tropomyosin, regulate the binding of myosin to actin. Troponin is a trimeric protein composed of Troponin subunits I, C and T. Troponin C binds calcium ions, Troponin T binds to tropomyosin and troponin I binds
Cholesterol Biosynthesis Regulation
The amount of cholesterol that is synthesized in the liver is tightly regulated by dietary cholesterol levels. LDL receptors regulate the cellular transport of lipid rich low density lipoprotein (LDL) particles.
Robust Differentiation of Human iPSCs into Lineage-Specific Neurons and Glial Cells Utilizing Dual-SMAD Inhibition
Human iPSC neural differentiation media and protocols used to generate neural stem cells, neurons and glial cell types.
Combining Permeability and Solubility Analyses in a Single Workflow
This article details the benefits of combining solubility and a non-cell based permeability assay (Parallel Artificial Membrane Permeation Assay; PAMPA) into a single workflow in which a portion of the filtrate from the MultiScreen® Solubility filter plate is added to
Phase I Drug Metabolism
Phase I biotransformation reactions introduce or expose functional groups on the drug with the goal of increasing the polarity of the compound. Although Phase I drug metabolism occurs in most tissues, the primary and first pass site of metabolism occurs
Properties of Mononuclear Cells Isolated by the Ficoll-Paque Method
The effects of the mononuclear cell separation method described by Bøyum procedure are noted below, since research situations may arise in which they are significant.
Vimentin is an intermediate filamentous cytosketetal protein found in cells of mesenchymal origin. Vimentin typically exists as a coiled-coil dimer that interacts with another dimers to form a tetrameric complex that forms cytoskeletal protein sheets
Membrane Integrity Test for Lipid-PAMPA Artificial Membranes
This is a protocol for a Membrane Integrity test for Lipid-PAMPA Artificial Membranes
Cell Counting Using a Hemocytometer
Cell counting protocol using a hemocytometer and trypan blue for measuring cell viability.
Biotinylation Reagents
Biotin-labelled peptides have many important applications in immunology and histochemistry, such as affinity purification and FRET-based flow cytometry, solid-phase immunoassays, and receptor localization, that exploit the high affinity of streptavidin and avidin for biotin.
Transferrin in Cell Culture
How transferrin and other cell culture components affect the performance of serum-free, protein-free cell culture systems used for biomanufacturing heterologous proteins including monoclonal antibodies. The page introduces the in vitro chemistry and biochemistry of transferrin.
Linolenic Acid in Cell Culture
Importance and uses of linolenic acid in serum-free eukaryotic, including hybridoma and Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cell, cultures
Poor Adherent Cell Attachment Troubleshooting
Cells that are cultured under suboptimal growth conditions attach poorly. When the culture surface provided is appropriate, the most common cause of failure of cells to attach to a substrate is environmental stress placed on the cells.
Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF)
Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) is a potent mitogen for hepatocytes and a variety of other cells, including endothelial and epithelial cells, melanocytes, and keratinocytes.
