New Tool For Investigating RNA Gone Awry
A new technology – called “Sticky-flares” – developed by nanomedicine experts at Northwestern University offers the first real-time method to track and observe the dynamics of RNA distribution as it is transported inside living cells.
Access Denied: Leukemia Thwarted by Cutting Off Link to Environmental Support
A new study reveals a protein’s critical – and previously unknown -- role in the development and progression of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a fast-growing and extremely difficult-to-treat blood cancer.
Oxitec ‘Self-Limiting Gene’ Offers Hope for Controlling Invasive Moth
A new pesticide-free and environmentally-friendly way to control insect pests has moved ahead with the publication of results showing that Oxitec diamondback moths (DBM) with a ‘self-limiting gene’ can dramatically reduce populations of DBM.

RT2 Profiler™ PCR Arrays: Pathway-Focused Gene Expression Profiling with qRT-PCR
Bookmark and Share

Qiagen

This paper evaluates the performance of the newest technique for monitoring the expression of a panel of pathway- or disease-specific genes: the RT2 Profiler PCR Array System from SA Biosciences. The PCR Array System combines the quantitative performance of SYBR® Green-based real-time PCR with the multiple gene profiling capabilities of a microarray. The PCR Array is a 96- or 384-well plate containing RT2 qPCR Primer Assays for a set of 84 related genes, plus five housekeeping genes, and three controls. A complete system includes an instrumentspecific master mix and an optimized first strand synthesis kit. This paper presents scientific data showing that PCR Arrays have the sensitivity, reproducibility, and specificity expected from real-time PCR techniques. As a result, this technology brings focused gene expression profiling to any biological laboratory setting with a real-time PCR instrument.
