... PCR Reaction Rates and Diagnostics with Modified Nucleotides While current software programs can model the thermodynamics (i.e. the results at equilibrium after a long time) of DNA and RNA reactions, none can model the kinetics (i.e. how fast the reaction takes place). In addition, most software can ...

Solar cells, geological storage research receive DOE funding at the University of Texas at Austin

The interdisciplinary team in the Cockrell School of Engineering and the Jackson School of ...

Incorrectly cleaved protein leads to schizophrenia

... has also shown that there is a disturbance of the activity of the frontal and temporal areas in the brain, which is connected with a disturbed equilibrium among the substances (proteins) that are needed for neuronal functioning. Schizophrenia is treated using anti-psychotic and neuroleptic medicines. ...

Rutgers physicist earns prestigious Packard Foundation Science and Engineering Fellowship

... biggest problems in physics it took scientists many decades to solve, he noted. But their description was for situations where the superfluid is in equilibrium or in some way close to it; that is, where the unusual states of matter that we see near absolute zero are constant in time. Yuzbashyans latest ...

Madison-based Mithridion seeks to capitalize on Alzheimer's breakthrough

... of all cases. As for the other 90 percent, Alzheimer's contracted sporadically and for no apparent reason, the condition "probably is due to an equilibrium balance shift between the good- and the bad-cut protein," Johnson said. "So as you age, the good-cut protein goes down and the bad-cut protein ...

A Screen of shRNAs Targeting Tumor Suppressor Genes to Identify Factors Involved in Paclitaxel Sensitivity

... agent (produced by Bristol-Meyers Oncology) functions by stabilization of microtubules so they cannot depolymerize. It effectively shifts the equilibrium in cells towards microtubule assembly, disrupting the normal operation of the microtubule network and thereby arresting the mitotic process. ...

... of these ions; and (c) the binary structures of these ions have various lattice constants. Relaxation of the ionic bonds to equilibrium positions may lead to local order in the structure and a larger than expected reduction in the band-gap. ...

Use of FlashPlate Technology for In Vitro Measurement of 125I-Labeled TGF-1 Binding on Chimeric Extracellular Domain of Type II Transforming Growth Factor Receptor

... of TGF-1 binding to hTRIIs-Fc (Figure 2). The kinetics of 125 I-labeled TGF-1 binding, performed at room temperature, were relatively rapid, since equilibrium binding was usually achieved after just two to three hours of incubation. Meaningful values for binding ...

Analysis of Fuel Oxygenates by U.S. EPA Method 8260B Using Headspace Trap with GC/MS

... U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Method 8260B. The headspace trap uses heat to extract (partition) the compounds out of the water into an equilibrium headspace, instead of purging. This transports a significant and highly reproducible fraction of the analytes from the sample onto a thermal ...

Practical Applications of HyperDSC in a Pharmaceutical Laboratory

... setting, even at a rate as high as 500 C/min. Thus, for an experiment beginning at -65 C and carried out at 200 C/min, the apparatus reaches equilibrium at about 30 C, the temperature from which any transition can be measured. By comparison, a classical heat-flux DSC can take 30 to 60 seconds and is ...

USB OptiKinase Eliminates Base Bias in Labeling of Oligonucleotide 5'-Ends

... these is that OptiKinase overcomes base bias, allowing uniform labeling of oligonucleotides (Fig. 2). Additionally, OptiKinase shifts the reaction equilibrium toward phosphorylation, allowing efficient labeling with relatively lower amounts of radiolabel (Fig. 3). It performs well across a range of enzyme ...
