Synthesis of cDNA from RNA free of genomic DNA contamination

The synthesis of cDNA is the first step for many protocols in molecular biology, in particular in the analysis of gene expression by PCR and Real-time PCR (qPCR). All subsequent steps require that the synthesis phase produce a highly faithful cDNA that accurately represents the target DNA. The advent of cDNA synthesis kits has made …

The cytoskeleton

The cytoskeleton is a system of fibers, and filaments, located in the cytoplasm. Its functions are to transport cell structures, mitochondria and vesicles, for example, to anchor cell organelles, and to preserve the shape and structure of cells. The eukaryotic cytoskeleton consists of three main components, namely actin filaments, microtubules and intermediate filaments. What is …

Coxiella burnetii – how deadly could be the Q fever?

What is this Coxiella pathogen? Coxiella burnetii is a Gram-negative bacterium that infects animals and humans causing the Q fever (query fever). This is a strictly intracellular pathogen that encodes several basic proteins that buffers the environment of the phagolysosome-like vacuole to acidic pH. The genome of this bacterium includes 4 Na+ exchangers and transporters …

Pseudomonas putida – a helper of plants and scientists and a cleaner of pollution… with the occasional mischief

What is Pseudomonas putida? Pseudomonas putida is a bacterium that belongs to the family Pseudomonadaceae. It has a rod-like shape, poses flagella, hence is rather mobile and shows negative Gram staining. It lives in fresh water or in soil where the moisture is high enough. Why is Pseudomonas putida important? As a laboratory model – …
