    Growth factors and Cytokines Tutorial - An Introduction

    Serving a crucial role in cells, growth factors and cytokines are absolutely indispensable to human physiology, stem cell and cancer research and developmental biology. Growth factors and cytokines are vital signaling molecules that control cell activities in an autocrine, paracrine or endocrine manner. They are a key to a cell’s biological function by binding to specific receptors and activating associated downstream signaling pathways. In turn, these pathways regulate gene transcription in the nucleus and ultimately stimulate a biological response. In this video, you learn about physiological processes affected by growth factors and cytokines and about the three different signaling mechanisms they use. You get a short overview about the classification of Growth factors and the range of applications they are used in. Lastly, you will learn about the rigorous quality control testing processes.

    Conditional gene expression using the Cre Lox FLEx vector switch!

    The Cre-LOX system relies on two components to function: a site-specific recombinase called Cre and a DNA sequence called loxP. Cre recombinase recognizes loxP sites and initiates site-specific recombination between those sites. The recombination outcome depends on the position of the lox sites and their orientation. To avoid continual gene flipping, scientists developed a system with different spacer regions that are not cross-compatible. A FLEx switch has the gene of interest flanked by two sets of different lox sites, which results in a final product consisting of the inverted gene of interest flanked by two different lox sites. FLEx (flip excision) switches are a powerful tool for genetic manipulation, especially in vivo. In this video you learn about the basic Cre Lox and Flex switch principles. You get to know more about applications of FLEx switches (like gene knock-ins and inducible gene expression). The advantages of the systems are also explained in detail.

    One-Step Multi-fragment Cloning with the Pro Ligation-free Cloning Kit

    In this video, abm’s Pro Ligation-free Cloning Kit is introduced. As the name already says, it is ligase free. This results in a lower chance of vector self-ligation, no reliance on restriction site availability and a reduced background colony growth in comparison to other assembly kits. The kit is great for multiple fragment assembly, completely scar-free and reliable. Furthermore, it is simple and fast: No Gel extraction or PCR is needed, one reaction tube is all it takes. Complex assemblies are achieved in only one hour. By watching this video, you learn how to use the Pro Ligation-free Cloning Kit and about the major benefits it brings to your laboratory.

    Ultrasensitive Biomarker Testing Service - Simoa™

    Since tiny changes in coded proteins make the difference between sickness and health, observing these changes can help direct diagnosis and treatment in areas like oncology or cardiovascular diseases. Single molecule molecule array (Simoa™) testing is a powerful technique that is more sensitive than standard sandwich based immunoassay techniques. The RayBio Ultrasensitive SimoaTM Testing Services reach femtogram (fg/ml) levels, allowing the detection and quantification of biomarkers at concentrations previously difficult or impossible to measure. In this video, you learn about the operating principle behind SimoaTM testing and what makes up its specificity.
