Primer Extension Reactions for the PCR- based α- complementation Assay
Authors:  Vasudevan Achuthan and Jeffrey J. DeStefano, date: 06/20/2015, view: 6222, Q&A: 0
The PCR- based- α- complementation assay is an effective technique to measure the fidelity of polymerases, especially RNA-dependent RNA polymerases (RDRP) and Reverse Transcriptases (RT). It has been successfully employed to determine the fidelity ...
Mismatched Primer Extension Assays
Authors:  Vasudevan Achuthan and Jeffrey J. DeStefano, date: 06/20/2015, view: 4529, Q&A: 0
Steady state kinetic assays have been a reliable way to estimate fidelity of several polymerases (Menendez-Arias, 2009; Rezende and Prasad, 2004; Svarovskaia et al., 2003). The ability to analyze the extension of primers with specific ...

Separation of Natural Collagen Crosslinks Using Buffer and Ion-pairing Agent Free Solvents on Silica Hydride Column for Mass Spectrometry Detection
Authors:  Rafea Naffa and Joseph Pesek, date: 05/05/2019, view: 605, Q&A: 0
In this protocol we describe the separation of collagen crosslinks in biological tissues and samples including skin, tendon, cartilage, bone and urine. The existing methods use either cation exchange chromatography followed by post-column ...

Sleeping Beauty Transposon-based System for Rapid Generation of HBV-replicating Stable Cell Lines
Authors:  Jin-Wei Zheng, Jia-Li Cao and Quan Yuan , date: 07/05/2018, view: 2305, Q&A: 0
The stable HBV-transfected cell lines, which based on stable integration of replication-competent HBV genome into hepatic cells, are widely used in basic research and antiviral drug evaluation against HBV. However, previous reported strategies to ...
