Sports First Aid

Should you be running any type of sports team, then it is likely to be wise that you (or someone else involved in the day to day running) is trained in first aid for sports. Whilst treating common injuries may seem simple, ensuring that it is done in the right way can actually be more … Read more

Increasing Your medical Skills

When it comes to those who have specialised in medicine, it can be easy for them to find themselves feeling they have painted themselves into a corner. After all, such qualifications take many years to achieve and for those who specialise in certain areas it can end up leading them into what is a very rewarding, but very often a very restricted career.

Immunostaining with modified histone antibodies

Chromatin undergoes remodelling in a variety of ways, to activate or restrict gene transcription. Histone modification is central to this. Modified histone antibodies are widely used in immunostaining and immunolabeling assays, to study the complex pathways involved. Recently, E. Terrenoire et al used a new antibody immunostaining method to define features of the human epigenome at the single-cell level.

New marker antibody identified for melanoma therapy

Antibody suppliers produce a wide range of cellular marker antibodies for use in genetic and molecular research. They are used to identify proteins which are common to certain cell types, so those cells can be isolated for further study. Recently, the neuropilin, or NRP2 antibody identified neuropilin as a possible new biomarker in melanoma cells.

The TGF-beta antibody and breast cancer research

According to the American Cancer Society,around 250,000 cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in the US each year,40,000 of which are terminal.Thanks to advances in molecular biology, antibody suppliers now have a large catalog of antibodies targeting breast cancer genes,which researchers can use to develop novel cancer therapies.However,the outcome is highly dependent upon the type of tumor.The survival rate is much lower with tumor cells which metastasize,such as basal-like breast cancer (BLBC) cells.

Transcriptional research with modified histone antibodies

The histones are highly conserved proteins which play an essential role in transcriptional regulation. They form the central octameric core of the nucleosome, acting as a spool for chromatin DNA. Antibody studies have shown histones undergo modification in a number of ways to affect gene expression. We at Novus Biologicals have a wide range of modified histone antibodies in our antibody catalog.

How to Get the Most from Cosmetic Surgery

Cosmetic surgery is growing in popularity these days. It’s no longer a taboo that has to be kept behind closed doors, because now a little nip and tuck here and there is totally acceptable. But, with the influx of procedures and clinics on offer it’s more important than ever for prospective patients to be confident in their choice, so here are a few things to bear in mind to get the most out of a procedure.
