SARS-CoV-2 genetic information may integrate into human chromosomes

People who recover from COVID-19 sometimes later test positive for SARS-CoV-2, suggesting their immune systems could not ward off a second attack by the coronavirus or that they have a lingering infection. A study now hints at a differentfalse

Targeting Gut Microbiota to Treat COVID-19

COVID-19 is a disease caused by a new coronavirus (called SARS-CoV-2). So far, there are more than 6 million Americans infected with this virus during the past several months, and there is no good medication for this disease. This kind of virus canfalse

A protein that may help SARS-CoV-2 spread rapidly through cells

Eric Ross and Sean Cascarina, biochemistry and molecular biology researchers at Colorado State University, have released a research paper identifying a protein encoded by SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, that may be associated with thefalse


A wide variety of proteins are being studied. To help select loading controls, commonly used loading controls for proteins from the cytoplasm, mitochondria, and nucleus are discussed below.

How to select loading controls for Western Blots?

Western blotting is the golden standard for protein detection and quantification, and therefore extensively used in biological research. Given that a Western blot assay consists of multiple steps, any potential variations in the process, such asfalse

Protective Antibodies Against COVID-19 Isolated & Characterized

In the search for interventions against COVID-19, one potential mode of intervention would be to block viral entry into target cells by blocking the interaction between the receptor-binding domain (RBD) of the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 and thefalse

COVID-19 Antibody Testing

The first wave of Covid-19 tests is designed to determine whether you have the SARS-CoV-2 virus right now. As the world starts to eye an exit from lockdown, the second wave of tests is trying to find out if you had the virus in the past. To thisfalse
