This paper reports the use of a new density gradient compound, Iodixanol, for the resolution of the major organelles from mouse liver. A major advantage of Iodixanol over other iodinated density gradient media is its ready ability to form self-generated gradients. Gradient-forming conditions have been modulated to provide optimal recoveries of Golgi… (More)
Metrizamide, an inert, non-ionic organic compound, dissolves in water to give a dense solution in which DNA bands isopycnically at a density corresponding to that of fully hydrated DNA. Density-gradient centrifugation in solutions of metrizamide has been used to determine the effects of very dilute solutions of salts on the buoyant density of native and… (More)
Previous work from this laboratory has shown that immunoporation has the potential for the selective transfection of a range of different animal cells based on their immunological identity. The unique ability of immunoporation to target cells for transfection combined with the high efficiency of transfection and the high viability of cells make this method… (More)
The physical and biological properties of Iodixanol, a new nonionic density gradient medium, are described in this paper. It is effectively a dimer of Nycodenz and it exhibits two significant advantages over previous iodinated density gradient media--its aqueous solutions are iso-osmotic up to a density of 1.32 g/ml and it is capable of forming… (More)
Dynabeads are magnetic monosized beads with high stability, high uniformity, unique paramagnetic properties, low particle-particle interaction, and high dispersibility. Different reactive groups; hydroxyl, carboxyl and amino groups can be attached to the surface. Several methods for covalent attachment of DNA or oligonucleotides to the beads were… (More)
Nuclei isolated from D. discoideum and incubated in vitro with 3H-NAD synthesise poly(ADP-Rib). The optimum incubation conditions for the poly(ADP-Rib) polymerase were determined. The Km of the enzyme is 18 microM NAD and it is inhibited by nicotinamide. Most of the poly(ADP-Rib) synthesised is attached to nuclear proteins.
