1. Pathology Research Using Mitophagy Modulators

    Pathology Research Using Mitophagy Modulators
    Pathology Research Using Mitophagy Modulators When you hear “small things with big impact”, do you immediately think of mitochondria and mitophagy modulators? Probably not! But these little organelles are champions of cell regulation.  Among their functions is regulating the energy of the cell as well as cell death. And just as mitochondria are responsible for cell function, mitophagy is responsible...
  2. Hydroxychloroquine: Misconceptions in the Media

    Hydroxychloroquine: Misconceptions in the Media
    Hydroxychloroquine: Misconceptions in the Media It’s hard to miss hearing the word “hydroxychloroquine” being associated with coronavirus in the news right now.  Hydroxychloroquine is being touted as a “game changer” in treating coronavirus by people in the current US administration who are not medical professionals. This drug has a similar structure to a previously established drug called CQ (N4-(7-Chloro-4-quinolinyl)-N1,N1-diethyl-1,4-pentanediamine), which...

  4. Tunicamycin: ER Stress Inducer

    Tunicamycin: ER Stress Inducer
    Tunicamycin: ER Stress Inducer When we hear the terms cell death and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress, what first comes to mind?  3D illustration of protein folding Stress? Death? Two concepts that don’t exactly inspire positive thoughts.  However, in the case of the antibiotic compound tunicamycin, cell death and ER stress are the objectives.  What is Tunicamycin? Tunicamycin is an antibiotic...
  5. Ruthenium: Applications in Medical & Energy Technologies

    Ruthenium: Applications in Medical & Energy Technologies
    Ruthenium: Applications in Medical & Energy Technologies Ruthenium is used as a catalyst, in addition to being one of the rarest metals on the planet. It speeds up chemical processes with precision and aides in electrochemical energy technologies as well as renewable energy conversions. It is mainly found with platinum in small amounts around the world, and for being so...
  6. Tips for Selecting Biological Detergents

    Tips for Selecting Biological Detergents
    Tips for Selecting Biological Detergents Biological detergents are chemicals classified as surfactants, or surface-active molecules. Research scientists typically use these detergents in affecting the interactions within molecules of a biological sample being studied. These surfactants are used in biochemical research to target and manipulate the structure of membrane proteins without sacrificing their integrity or impacting their original function. Membrane proteins...
  7. Potassium Oxalate is a Super Reagent

    Potassium Oxalate is a Super Reagent
    Potassium Oxalate is a Super Reagent No we aren’t talking James Bond here. However one of potassium oxalate's uses is as a chelating agent that bonds to heavy metals in the bloodstream and is effective in the treatment of heavy metal poisoning. It is also used to quantify, purify, strip, and bleach different target materials and compounds, among other useful...
