Apoptosis products – 20% OFF , SUMMER PROMOTION

The mitochondrial electrochemical gradient is often disturbed during apoptosis and can be detected using cationic dyes such as DePsipher™ (5,5’6,6’- tetrachloro-1,1’,3,3’-tetraethylbenz-imidazolylcarbocyanine iodide) or MitoShift™ (tetramethylrhodamine ethyl ester). Activation of caspases, or cysteinyl proteases, is a necessary event for execution of the apoptotic response.  Some of the caspases

Gene editing treat rare liver disease

Using a new system of genetic editing based on bacterial proteins by researchers from MIT cured rare liver disease caused by a single genetic mutation. The findings described in the edition of Nature Biotechnology, provide the first evidence that the technique of editing of a gene known as CRISPR, can reverse disease symptoms. CRISPR, which offers an …

Protein in the body – effective against hepatitis C

Protein in the body can improve its ability to detect and treat viral infections such as influenza and hepatitis C. This conclusion leads a laboratory study by researchers from the University Institute of cancer in Pittsburgh, USA.  To start playback in the body, the virus actually “invaded”cells and “takes” control over them.  Experts explain that, despite progress in the field of vaccines …
