A New Inexpensive Technology for Multiplexed Detection

... quantified using a single fluorescent color, which greatly simplifies detection. The particles are also unique in that they are made of a spongy polymer "hydrogel" called poly(ethylene glycol). That polymer enhances the sensitivity of the test because it is porous, allowing the target ...

Virus may Be the Cause of Mad Cow

... a cascade of abnormal changes in other proteins. In Manuelidis' previous experiments, prions did not appear until late in the progression of spongy brain diseases. To find what appears at an earlier phase, Manuelidis' team homogenized mouse brains infected with scrapie and Creutzfeldt-Jakob ...

Scientists Reverse Mad Cow Disease in Mice

... sponge. This results in the deterioration of the brain. The mice subjected to these procedures revealed a good recovery to normal behaviour. The spongy nature of the brain was also reverted and normal memory restored. The fact that these mice were very young in age contributed to the revival. ...

Genetically Altered Cells Prevent Lethal Infections in Substituted Skin

... skin substitutes are grown in a laboratory using cells from a burn patient's own skin. These cells are cultured, expanded and combined with a spongy layer of collagen to make skin grafts that are reattached to the burn wound. Dorothy Supp, PhD, and her team found that skin cells that were ...

Gluten Free Bread: Boon for Celiac Disease
