Recently the Targeted Insertion of Short DNA Fragments into Mammalian Cells was Shown to be Possible with the help of CRISPR Cas! The direct injection of Cas9 mRNA, sgRNAs, and DNA oligos or vectors into mammalian cells was reported as… Read More ›
Circular oligonucleotides are covalently closed singular DNA or RNA strands that are resistant to degradation by many cellular DNA and RNA decay machineries. [Source: (left) Modelling DNA; Phil. Trans. R. Soc. A-2006-Harris-3319-34; (right) David Goodsell: The self-splicing RNA in PDB… Read More ›
Peptides – a collection of words, nouns and terms to review – natural peptides, synthetic peptides, peptide mimics, artificial peptides, modified peptides and more.
WHAT ARE PEPTIDES? Peptides are macro molecules that contain amino acid monomers linked together by peptide (amide) bonds. The covalent bonds are formed when the carboxyl group of one amino acid reacts with the amino group of another. Peptides are… Read More ›
Micro RNAs (miRNAs) have recently emerged as key regulators of metabolic processes! . More and more evidence is accumulating that suggest that the dysregulation of miRNAs may contribute to metabolic abnormalities such as the misregulation of cholesterol and lipid metabolism, insulin… Read More ›
