|An HTS-Compatible Plate For Highly Miniaturized Cultures Of Primary Human Bronchial Epithelial Cells At Air-Liquid Interface|
Elizabeth Vu1, Eric Sorscher2, Robert Lowery1, Steven Hayes1
Primary human bronchial epithelial cells (HBE) cultured at air liquid interface (ALI) exhibit striking similarity to the in vivo situation, including both tissue architecture and ion channel functionality. Cultures of this type serve as a gold standard for predicting therapeutic activity in airway diseases such as cystic fibrosis.

Melissa L. Kelley, Žaklina Strezoska, Elena Maksimova, Hidevaldo Machado, Emily M. Anderson, Maren Mayer, Annaleen Vermeulen, Shawn McClelland, Anja van Brabant Smith
Overview of various CRISPR-Cas9 reagents to provide the highest efficiency of gene editing in your experiments.
|Knockdown of p53 by Accell self-delivering siRNA causes inhibition of p53-dependent DNA damage response in IMR-32 neuroblastoma cell line and β-amyloid toxicity in rat cortical neurons |
Žaklina Strezoska, Tamara Seredenina1, Devin Leake, Annaleen Vermeulen
Here we describe how application of Accell siRNA enabled the development of a high content screening assay in IMR-32 neuroblastoma cells and a whole culture cell viability assay in primary rat cortical neurons.
|High Performance Comprehensive Two-Dimensional Gas Chromatography Coupled with a High Resolution Multi-Reflecting TOFMS for Confident Non-Target Analyte Identification|
Scott J. Pugh, Viatcheslav Artaev, Mark F. Merrick, Jack Cochran
The use of comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography to help increase chromatographic resolution is a major step in tackling the problem of confident peak identification in a complex sample matrix. Combining the separation power of two-dimensional gas chromatography, with resolving power greater than 25,000, and sub ppm mass accuracies of a high resolution multi-reflecting TOFMS is the ideal solution to confident compound identification within a complex sample matrix.
|An Efficient Method for the Incorporation of Molecular Probes at Multiple/Specific sites in RNA: Levulinyl Protection for 2'-ACE ® , 5'-Silyl Oligoribonucleotide Synthesis|
Xiaoqin Cheng, Shawn Begay, Randy Rauen, Kelly Grimsley, Kaizhang He, Michael Delaney
A unique method that uses a levulinate ester as a protecting group to introduce conjugates or molecular probes to virtually any location in a synthetic RNA molecule is discussed. The Levulinyl protecting group is stable in RNA synthesis conditions and can be removed without affecting the other parts of the synthesized RNA. We show the capabilities of this approach with three high-complexity synthesis examples.
|The Prestwick Chemical Library (R), A Valuable Tool for Screening|
Jean-Marie Contreras1, Christophe Morice1, Jean-Marc Simon1, Bruno Didier2, Marie-Louise Jung1 and Thierry Langer3
The Prestwick Chemical Library® (PCL) is Prestwick’s flagship product dedicated to screening. It is a collection of 1280 molecules comprising 100% approved drugs (FDA, EMEA and other agencies) selected for their high chemical and pharmacological diversity. The PCL was designed to reduce the risk of "low quality" hits and therefore the cost of the initial screening, and appears to be an efficient smart library for hit discovery. The PCL comes with an extended fully-annotated database.
|Bovine RNA-seq data analysis of liver and pituitary gland|
Pareek CS12, Smoczynski R12, Dziuba P12, Sikora M12, Golebiewski M2, Blaszczyk P12, Gelfand B3, Yaping F3, Kumar D3.
Two key applications of RNA-seq i.e., i) transcriptome read mapping to a reference genome and ii) SNP detections were investigated to analysis of bovine liver and pituitary gland transcriptome. Here, we have presented ONLY the obtained results of bovine pituitary gland.

A proteomic analysis of p27kip1-binding proteins reveals a putative role in transcription regulation through RNA polymerase II interaction
|Impact of the transgene MON 810 in expression of coding and non-coding RNAs in maize|
Rodrigues, M.1, Chegão, A. 1, Costa, A. 1, Fernandes, C.1, Quedas, F. 2, de Andrade, E.1
We demonstrate that plant improvement by means of transgenesis causse alterations in the expression profiles of endogenous non-target genes.
