    USA). Three boosters were given i.p. using 50 µg of the same antigen emulsified in Freund's incomplete adjuvant (Sigma) at 14-day intervals. Sera were collected 2 weeks after the last booster and checked for specific antibodies by an indirect immunofluorescence assay (IFA). 2.6. SDS-PAGE and Western blotting Proteins in the extracts were size-separated under reducing conditions by

  • What Additional Confirmatory Tests Should Be Done?

    1113 Words  | 5 Pages

    1. If HIV-seropositivity is detected, what additional confirmatory tests should be done? List 3 tests and describe their principle. Western blotting - In Western blotting first, the macromolecules have to be separated via gel electrophoresis. The molecules now separated by electrophoresis are blotted onto either a nitrocellulose or a polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) membrane (a second matrix). To inhibit the binding of nonspecific antibodies to the membrane surface it is subsequently blocked. Then

    allowing fluid to build up and create a blister.Before the appearance of blisters, the rash in PG can look like that of numerous other skin diseases. Thus, there are diagnostic tests which have been outlined based on clinical picturing, direct immunofluorescence microscopy and serology. A skin biopsy can useful in showing typical features of the subepidermal blistering. This is not a confirmation of PG because such blistering may be microscopically similar to that seen in dermatoses such as bullous

  • Essay On Resveratrol

    1506 Words  | 7 Pages

    Resveratrol Attenuates Neuronal Apoptosis after Subarachnoid Hemorrhage via inhibiting the expression of TXNIP in Rats Abstract Objective: Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a fatal condition with a few available effective treatments. Resveratrol (RES), a natural polyphenolic compound, has a powerful anti-apoptosis property. In addition, its neuroprotective effects has been exhibited in neurodegenerative diseases, ischemic brain damage, and SAH. However, the underlying molecular mechanism of RES in

  • Assisted Reproductive Technology ( Vitro Fertilisation )

    810 Words  | 4 Pages

    A successful fertilisation event refers to a sperm and an oocyte meet at a right place and a right time. Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) includes IVF (in vitro fertilisation) or ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) treatments have helped xxx of women got pregnant and deliver around xx of newborns to couples in the UK every year. However, the overall pregnancy rate is remain low. Only a minority (15-30%) of embryos implanted in the uterus result in a successful pregnancy. It is approximately

    antibodies that bind to T cruzi antigens (see Fig. 4A). Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, indirect immunofluorescence, and indirect hemagglutination are most common methods used. Two positive results from any of these 3 conventional techniques are recommended for a final diagnosis. The chronic infection can be diagnosed by most common methods i.e. indirect hemaagglutination, indirect immunofluorescence

    These cells only carry a heterozygous splicing mutation (c.204+1G>A) in the NF1 genome and with the other allele remaining wildtype (Nf1+/-). (D-I) are immunofluorescence assay to characterize the pluripotency of Nf1+/- iPS cells using a panel makers for human embryonic stem cells. (A) and (B) are patient neurofibroma-derived fibroblasts and iPS cells before and after reprogramming. The generated iPS cells

  • Human Cells And The Human Body

    1747 Words  | 7 Pages

    Kidneys are one of the most essential organs in a human body which are crucial for blood filtration, toxins, and waste removal and maintaining and regulating the body’s pH. The researchers created kidney structures from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) called organoids which have the function and structural organization of a human fetal kidney in the first trimester. This study used the results of a previous study where human embryonic stem cells were differentiated towards a renal lineage. As

  • Synthesis And Function Of The Dopamine Transporter

    2061 Words  | 9 Pages

    In this experiment, the reaction that occurs because of ligand binding to YFP, a dopamine transporter was observed. This experiment required sterility practice, immunofluorescence staining, and colocalization. To accurately conduct immunofluorescence staining, a thorough understanding of proper sterile techniques is needed. Sterility refers to cell culturing experiments without any contamination, therefore all of the experiment was performed under the hood. No discoloration signified no contamination

  • The Neuron Nerve Net Controversy

    1356 Words  | 6 Pages

    Seeing is believing: we often need to see something before we can accept that it really exists or occurs, and this has been especially pertinent to neuroanatomy. When what we see is limited and incomplete, various interpretations of what was seen arises which are followed by various possible explanations of the mechanism that account for them. A case in point is the neuron-nerve net controversy in the late 19th century, which was not resolved until detailed observations of axonal terminations in
