ASSOCIATES OF CAPE COD INCORPORATED™ – Will Recombinant Lysate Save The Horseshoe Crabs?

ACC’s Bacterial Endotoxin Testing White Paper

There have been a number of recent articles stating that a synthetic alternative to a reagent manufactured using blood extracted from horseshoe crabs could save the speciesi,ii. This suggestion incorporates some erroneous assumptions and ignores some important facts. Consequently, the simple answer to the question posed in the title is, no; there is little truth to the idea. This article examines the assertion that the synthetic reagent could save the horseshoe crab and explains the fallacies that it is based upon.

Aqua Solutions – Water purification breakthrough uses sunlight and 'hydrogels'

Researchers from UT Austin Crockwell School of Engineering have developed a new cost-effective desalination technology using combined gel-polymer hybrid materials. Guiha Yu, a UT Austin associate professor for material science and mechanical engineering, led the team of researchers.

Thanks to their experiment, the research team was able to produce clean, safe drinking water from any source through the use of
hydrophilic and semiconducting Hydrogels -- a network of polymer chains known for its high water absorbency.

EpiCypher – Nucleosome Remodeling Assay by EpiDyne™-FRET

Chromatin remodeling, or the repositioning of nucleosomes, regulates DNA access and thus gene expression and genome repair. Many ATP-dependent remodeling enzyme complexes are associated with human disease but are challenging study targets due to the requirement for nucleosome-based substrates. EpiCypher has addressed this need by developing the EpiDyne platform of fully recombinant remodeling substrates to monitor nucleosome repositioning along DNA. Here, we demonstrate the utility of EpiDyne-FRET in a homogeneous remodeling assay using Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) readout.
