Expansion microscopy is a recently developed technique that allows nanoscale resolution imaging of specimens on fast, diffraction-limited microscopes. The method is based on the use of highly cross-linked, expandable polymers that bind biomolecules and labels. The expansion of the polymer pulls biomolecules and labels apart. As a result, molecules are moved away from each other … Continued

Profiles of immune system antibodies provide a comprehensive viewpoint to develop a broad-spectrum pneumonia and meningitis vaccine. Vaccine Development using Protein Microarray A vaccine trains an individual’s immune system to recognize the disease-causing bug as a threat. Robust vaccination creates an immune response to any variant of the bug the individual might encounter throughout life. … Continued
Methods and materials that facilitate the distinction between salt and protein crystals are extremely valuable to crystallographers. The rapid identification of promising crystallization conditions helps to streamline a process that is otherwise largely unpredictable. A commonly used approached is based on the properties of protein crystals to emit fluorescence when excited with UV light. It … Continued
Introduction Plasmodium parasites inflict widespread global disease, which in the case of malaria is caused by the intraerythrocytic form of the parasite. The parasite infects the host by traveling to the liver where it intracellularly develops and affects hepatocyte cells, initiating a range of responses including autophagy and apoptosis. Different hosts, and even different hepatocyte … Continued
Introduction Glioblastoma (GMB) is the most aggressive type of brain cancer and represents 15% of all forms diagnosed. Symptoms are initially non-specific but progress rapidly. GMB’s exhibit aggressive growth, limited response to therapeutic intervention and high instance of reoccurrence. As the survival rate for patients is 12- 15 months after diagnosis, early detection is critical. … Continued

Introduction Matrigel is a natural extracellular matrix (ECM) secreted by Englebreth-Holm Swam mouse sarcoma. It has numerous applications in 2D and 3D cell culture for its ability to mimic in vivo environments. However, its complex and highly variable composition can negatively affect experimental reproducibility and accuracy. Furthermore, components naturally occurring in Matrigel can interfere with … Continued

Malaria is a life-threatening disease caused by Plasmodium parasites transmitted to people through the bites of infected female Anopheles mosquitoes. In 2017, it was estimated that nearly half of the world population was at risk of contracting the disease, with the highest number of cases and deaths reported in sub-Saharan Africa. In the same year … Continued
