Experimental MERS Vaccine Shows Promise in Animal Studies
A two-step regimen of experimental vaccines against Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) prompted immune responses in mice and rhesus macaques, report National Institutes of Health scientists who designed the vaccines.
New Tool Uses 'Drug Spillover' to Match Cancer Patients with Treatments
Researchers have developed a new tool that improves the ability to match drugs to disease: the Kinase Addiction Ranker (KAR) predicts what genetics are truly driving the cancer in any population of cells and chooses the best "kinase inhibitor" to silence these dangerous genetic causes of disease.
Understanding the Molecular Origin of Epigenetic Markers
Researchers at IRB Barcelona discover the molecular mechanism that determines how epigenetic markers influence gene expression.
HIV Susceptibility Linked to Little-Understood Immune Cell Class
High levels of diversity among immune cells called natural killer cells may strongly predispose people to infection by HIV, and may be driven by prior viral exposures, according to a new study.
Diagnostic Test Developed for Enterovirus D68
researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have developed a diagnostic test to quickly detect enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), a respiratory virus that caused unusually severe illness in children last year.
How a Kernel Got Naked and Corn Became King

Monitoring Bacterial Cell-to-Cell Communication “Quorum sensing” Using FLUOstar OPTIMA
Bookmark and Share


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.
