In some instances, cells can be continuously dosed with Accell siRNAs to enable target gene knockdown for extended durations.
THe AtSCL26 transcription factor controls cross-talk between GA and N root architecture in Arabidopsis thaliana roots
University of Warwick

Phenotypic and molecular evidence supports the hypothesis that developmental program enabling nodule formation arose during evolution from a lateral root ‘blueprint’ pre-existing in all higher plants . We reasoned that analyzing Arabidopsis genes orthologous to regulators of nodulation could shed insight on control of lateral root development. This led us to the discovery that an Arabidopsis GRAS family transcription factor controls lateral root development under specific nitrogen conditions.

DETERMINATION OF THE QUALITY OF ACTIVE INGREDIENTS IN PAIN KILLERS USING GC-MS
Jomo Kentyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (Kenya), and Foundation of Analytical Science and Technology in Africa (UK).

From this study, the pain killers sampled were found to have large error bars suggesting that there exist counterfeit drugs in the market. The brands mostly affected for analysis of acetaminophen were panadol, action, P500, P5500, elymol and neladol. The error bars for caffeine analysis were quite low indicating that all tablets either counterfeit or original maintained the same amount of this active ingredient.

Monitoring Bacterial Cell-to-Cell Communication “Quorum sensing” Using FLUOstar OPTIMA
BMG Labtech

Bacteria can monitor and respond to changes to environmental conditions via a cell density process known as quorum sensing. Bacteria use this process to monitor their community by producing, detecting and responding to low molecular mass signal molecules, called autoinducers. Effects on quorum sensing were investigated by measuring growth and bioluminescence of Vibrio fischeri. The FLUOstar OPTIMA was utilized to measure absorbance and luminescence in parallel.
