  • Beta-Lactamase and Microbial Antibiotic Resistance2019-05-30 12:00:05β-Lactamases continue to be the leading cause of resistance to β-lactam antibiotics among gram-negative bacteria. In recent years there has been an increased incidence and prevalence of extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBLs), enzymes that hydrolyze and cause resistance to oxyimino-cephalosporins and aztreonam.Antibiotic pills and capsules, thermometer
  • IPTG: Frequently Asked Questions and Protocols2019-05-22 12:00:08IPTG is a molecular biology reagent utilized in cloning experiments. This compound is used as a molecular mimic of allolactose, a lactose metabolite that triggers transcription of the lacoperon. Unlike allolactose, the IPTG sulfur (S) atom creates a chemical bond which is non-hydrolyzable by the cell, preventing the cell from "eating up" or degrading the inductant; therefore the IPTG concentration remains constant.Bottle of IPTG supplied by AG Scientific

  • Ionophores: Ion Carriers and Channels for Membrane Transport2019-05-16 07:00:08Ionophores are molecules that facilitate ion passage in or out of cell membranes. Ion carrier: A substance that can transfer ions from a hydrophilic medium, such as water, into a hydrophobic medium, i.e a biological membrane, where the ions typically would not be soluble.Diagram of bilipid membrane of cell with ion channels
  • Differences Between Necrosis and Necroptosis2019-05-14 12:28:06Cell death has traditionally been subdivided into regulated (apoptosis) and unregulated (necrosis) forms. While apoptosis has always been recognized to be a pathway of highly orchestrated signaling events, necrosis or necrotic cell death is known as a fortuitous and unregulated means of cell death that is induced by nonspecific and nonphysiological stress.Cell undergoing mitosis
  • Valinomycin Ionophore: Frequently Asked Questions2019-05-14 11:00:02Valinomycin is a potent antibiotic which acts as a potassium (K+) ionophore. Induces K+ conductivity in cell membranes. Also active in vitro against Mycobacterium Tuberculosis, and as an apoptosis inducer. Valinomycin is obtained from the cells of several Streptomyces strains, among which "S. tsusimaensis" and S. fulvissimus.Bottle of Valinomycin - potassium ionophore - supplied by AG Scientific
  • Blasticidin S Hydrochloride: Frequently Asked Questions2019-05-13 12:00:04Blasticidin S is an antibiotic used by scientists in bio-research to select cells modified by genetic engineering. It inhibits the growth of a wide range of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells by interfering with protein synthesis. Blasticidin S allows the selection and maintenance of cells expressing the blasticidin-resistance gene.Vial of Blasticidin S HCl as supplied by AG Scientific
