What Are the AT(N) Biomarkers for Alzheimer’s Disease?

星期五, 六月 8, 2018 - 10:42
Atlanta Biological Fetal Bovine Serum and Media

Researchers have long been attempting to identify and validate specific biomarkers for Alzheimer’s disease (AD). AD is a neurodegenerative disorder that is characterized by brain atrophy resulting from neuronal loss. It is typically diagnosed following a series of clinical assessments that include neurological and mental examinations and brain imaging. However, since many other disorders also display AD-like symptoms, the only way to definitively diagnosis AD is by tying clinical assessment of the disease to the postmortem identification of its pathological hallmarks (i.e. senile plaques...

Turning Flow Cytometry Upside Down and Inside Out: Cellular Function Revealed

星期二, 五月 8, 2018 - 07:58

Flow cytometry is a powerful technique that allows researchers to examine multiple proteins on cell populations using fluorescently labeled antibodies. Multi-parameter, fluidic-based flow cytometry has been applied to multiple fields of study ranging from basic to clinical immunology, cancer biology, neuroscience, stem cell research, and drug discovery. In order to maximize the quality of results obtained using this technology, researchers should be familiar with the basics of flow cytometry when setting up an experiment. In this series of seminars, we will discuss the necessary tools to design, run, and analyze a multi-parameter flow cytometric experiment.

Blood Coagulation Pathway and Resources

星期一, 四月 23, 2018 - 09:47
Blood Coagulation Pathway and Resources
 

The blood coagulation cascade is a complex and tightly regulated system that can either promote or inhibit clot formation. Maintaining the correct balance is vitally important. Ineffective coagulation (as in hemophilia) carries the risk of bleeding to death, while overactive coagulation results in blockage of blood vessels and tissue damage (as in atherosclerosis and stroke).

If your work involves the coagulation cascade or if you just want to learn about it, look through our Blood Coagulation interactive pathway. Clicking on the molecule links will take you to our premium quality reagents and assays related to that molecule. For more...

5 Reasons Why the R&D Systems Human Amyloid beta (aa1-40) and (aa1-42) Quantikine® ELISAs are the Best Kits on the Market

星期五, 三月 16, 2018 - 15:06
Stem Cells in the News

The amyloid cascade hypothesis theorizes that the excessive accumulation of Amyloid beta (A-beta) peptides in the brain are the initiating factor for the development of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Specifically, that aggregates of A-beta peptides, which are formed following cleavage of the Amyloid Precursor Protein (APP), instigate a series of events that leads to neurodegeneration and, eventually, AD. This hypothesis arose from the observation that the plaques identified in brains afflicted with AD were composed largely of A-beta peptides, and was further supported by the finding that many AD risk and deterministic genes coded for proteins involved in the production or...
