A protein associated with neuron damage in people with Alzheimer’s disease is surprisingly useful in promoting neuron growth in the lab, according to a new study by engineering researchers at Brown University. The findings, in press at the journal Biomaterials, suggest a better method of growing neurons outside the body that might then be implanted to treat people with neurodegenerative diseases.

Revolutionizing protein research

 :: Posted by American Biotechnologist on 06-19-2012

Western blotting, the backbone of protein research, is a universal lab procedure. While the premise of a western blot is simple — target proteins are identified and quantitated via antibody-antigen interactions — the traditional workflow is labor intensive and time consuming. Researchers have long sought a faster solution — an archetype that would streamline the entire process of separation, transfer, and visualization of results without compromising data quality. Has anybody been successful at this endeavor? Yes, a chosen few have! Want to become part of this exclusive club?

Find out more about a revolutionary new workflow that will help you cut your western blotting time in half!
