• CK-666 2018-06-27 11:16:13 Actin is a family of globular multi-functional proteins that form microfilaments. Microfilaments, also called actin filaments, are filaments in the cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells that form part of the cytoskeleton. Actin participates in many important cellular processes, including muscle contraction, CK-666
  • SMER28- An mTOR-independent small molecule enhancer of autophagy 2018-06-13 11:07:20 SMER28 is a small-molecule enhancer (SMER) of autophagy that increases autophagosome synthesis and enhances clearance of aggregate-prone substrates, including those relevant to Huntington’s, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s diseases. It is a positive regulator of autophagy in a mechani SMER28
  • Dithiothreitol aka Cleland’s Reagent 2017-10-02 09:57:11   Dithiothreitol or DTT is also known as Cleland’s Reagent. It contains two thiol groups and is commonly used to reduce disulfide bond in proteins. It can protect many thiol-containing biomolecules such as coenzyme A (Co-A), GSH (glutathione) from forming disulfide bonds. Not only does DTT sc DTT water splash
