Lipid Droplets: More Than Just Fat Stores

News

Lipid droplets have been found to play critical roles in the life cycles of certain proteins involved in gene expression. Now, a new study describes how lipid droplets regulate these proteins. The research has implications for understanding what helps embryos survive and could cause us to reconsider how we look at lipid-related diseases like obesity.

An Easier Way to Separate Glycopeptides
News

Chinese researchers have developed interfacially polymerized porous polymer particles for low- abundance glycopeptide separation. These polymer particles - with hydrophilic-hydrophobic heterostructured nanopores - can separate low-abundance glycopeptides from complex biological samples with high-abundance background molecules efficiently.

The New Normalization in Western Blotting
Article

A western blot is supposed to give you information on true experimental conditions or differences between samples. It is instrumental for the detection of proteins in research discovery and biopharma. In this article, we will be explaining the two main western blotting normalization methods; the older housekeeping protein method and the newer TPN method.
