This method works best in cell lines that are highly transformed and adherent and this technique requires few manipulative steps and maintains high levels of reproducibility from experiment to experiment.

Cationic Polymer Transfection. The cells must be fixed and permeabilized to ensure free access of the antibody to its antigen. Fixation methods fall generally into two classes: organic solvents and cross-linking reagents. This video uses formaldehyde as a cross-linking reagent to fix cells.

CellTiter 96R AQueous One Solution Cell Proliferation Assay is a colorimetric method for determining the number of viable cells in proliferation or cytotoxicity assays. The reagent contains a tetrazolium compound MTS. The MTS is bioreduced by cells into a colored formazan product which can be measured by the absorbance at nm.

By cellular mitochondrial dehydrogenases, WST-1 is bioreduced into formazan which can be measured at an absorbance of nm. Cell Synchronization with Nocodazole at Mitosis. Cell Synchronization is a process by which cells at different stages of the cell cycle in a culture are brought to the same phase. Nocodazole is one of anticancer drugs that synchronize cells at M-phase. It can interfere with the structure and function of microtubules in interphase and mitotic cells.

Chimera RNA Interference. Kumiko Ui-Tei at the University of Tokyo. Clonogenic assay allows one to test the capability of adherent cells to survive and replicate following insult with chemicals or radiation.

Count the crystal violet stained colonies which incubated for 9 days with appropriate chemical or radiation dose and calculate the survival rate. The auto gas analyzer is a tool to provide accurate carbon dioxide CO2 measurements in incubators. The Fyrite gas analyzer is the most widely used instrument for measuring carbon dioxide CO2 levels in incubators. It uses the Orsat method of volumetric analysis involving chemical potassium hydroxide absorption of CO2 gas.

Competent Cell Preparation. Competent cells are those that possess more easily altered cell walls that DNA can be passed through easily. Because DNA is hydrophilic, it will not normally pass through membrane. In order to make these cells readily incorporate foreign DNA, they must first be made "competent" to take up foreign DNA. After washing, unbound antibodies are removed. The more analytes in the sample, the less antibodies will be able to bind to antigens in the well.

The signal is then detected using labeled secondary antibodies and the decrease in signal is compared to a control. The major advantage of a competitive ELISA is the ability to use crude or impure samples and still selectively bind any antigen that may be present.

Diethylpyrocarbonate DEPC is used in the laboratory to inactivate the RNase enzymes from water and other laboratory utensils. It inactivates the RNases by the covalent modifications of the histidine residues.

Human umbilical vein endothelial cells HUVEC are commonly used as a laboratory model system for the physiological and pharmacological investigations. Dialysis ultrafiltration is a method to concentrate protein or other macromolecules through a membrane with defined pores. The membranes will have a molecular weight cut-off MWCO.

DNA sequencing is a technique to determine the order of the nucleotide bases-adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine. It is indispensable for basic biological research and discovery. Dot blot is a technique can be used as a semiqualitative method for rapid screening of a large number of samples. It is for detecting, analyzing, and identifying proteins, similar to the western blot technique but differing in that protein samples are not separated electrophoretically but are spotted through circular templates directly onto the membrane.

Electroporation applies a large electric pulse temporarily disturbs the phospholipid bilayer, allowing molecules to pass into the cell. It is usually used in molecular biology as a way of introducing some substance into a cell, such as molecular probes, drugs or pieces of coding DNA. Emulsification is a process to mix adjuvants and immunogen. Adjuvants are mixed and injected with an antigen to prevent catabolism and help increase the immune response by localizing the antigen for an extended time and attracting the appropriate cells T cells, B cells and APC to interact with it.
