|Intact Protein LC-MS: How to Overcome the Challenges?|
Robert van Ling, Evert-Jan Sneekes, Sebastiaan Dolman, Laurent Rieux, Mauro DePra, Christian Ravnsborg, Dafydd Milton, Remco Swart
Purpose: Facilitate intact protein LC-MS without compromising performance.
Methods: Construct prototypes of integrated column and sprayer dedicated for intact protein separations and compare performance.
Results: Three prototypes have been directly compared and all showed good protein separations, each with their unique area of strength.

High-throughput analysis of protein formulations by Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS): thermal stability, colloidal stability and a thermal anomaly in the colloidal stability parameter D1
|Digital microphotographic atlas of the adult zebrafish cerebellum|
Kristen Lee, Megan Landy, Ashton Cline, Christopher Corbo, and Zoltan Fulop
Sagittal, coronal and horizontal, one micron thick plastic (semithin) sections of adult zebrafish (Danio rerio) brain were photographed in 40X. The sections were then photomontaged together using in Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended Version 12.0 to make the photographic atlas.
|The Effects of Dimethylphthalate on the Viability and Development of Drosophila melanogaster|
Sara Mfarrej, Dr. Heather Cook, Dr. Donald Stearns, Dr. Zolton Fulop
My research studies the effect of dimethylphthalate (DMP), a putative endocrine disruptor, on the viability and development of the model organism Drosophila melanogaster.
|Analytical Pipetting of Serum|
John Thomas Bradshaw, PhD, Leah Flumerfelt, Richard H. Curtis, PhD, Rachel Parshley
Many types of chemical and biological analyses are based upon analytical techniques involving accurate delivery of liquid components. Pipetting tools have become commonplace especially in many biological and pharmaceutical laboratories. While these tools are familiar to many, their operational differences when pipetting different types of solutions are often over-looked.
|Targeted cancer therapy based on blocking the expression of genes and small doses of oxaliplatin.|
Bavykin A.S.1, Korotaeva A.A.1, Poyarkov S.V.2, Syrtsev A.V.1, Karpukhin A.V.1
The major drawbacks of the prescribed chemotherapy, are still remain the significant side effects and drug - resistance. Even targeted chemotherapy by means of specific antibodies do not always help to solve these complications. Our purpose was to identify potential biological targets associated with the development of drug resistance and to develop a specific method of suppressing the viability of cancer cells exposed to low doses of standard chemotherapy.
|Cloud Point Extraction of Metal Oxide Nanoparticles in Water Samples Identified by Raman Spectroscopy and Quantified by Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy|
Yanxiao Ma, Dr. Andrew F. Callender
Nanoparticles that are widely used in commercial products pose a threat to human health and the environment. This project proposes a cheaper and more effective method to identify and quantify metal oxide nanoparticles in water samples.
