A Gene Cluster That Encodes Histone Deacetylase Inhibitors Contributes to Bacterial Persistence and Antibiotic Tolerance in Burkholderia thailandensis.
Persister cells are genetically identical variants in a bacterial population that have phenotypically modified their physiology to survive environmental stress. In bacterial pathogens, persisters are able to survive antibiotic treatment and reinfect patients in a frustrating cycle of chronic infection. To better define core persistence mechanisms for therapeutics development, we performed transcriptomics analyses of Burkholderia thailandensis…Read More
Label-free real-time detection of biotinylated bovine serum albumin using a low-cost optical cavity-based biosensor.
We have developed a low-cost optical cavity-based biosensor with a differential detection method for point-of-care medical diagnostics. To experimentally demonstrate its label-free real-time biosensing capability, we performed the detection of biotinylated bovine serum albumin (BSA). Streptavidin is introduced into the optical cavity structure and immobilized on 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTES) coated surface. After rinsing out unbound streptavidin…Read More

Current Practices for Reference Gene Selection in RT-qPCR of Aspergillus: Outlook and Recommendations for the Future
Aspergillus is a genus of filamentous fungi with huge geographic and ecological distributions. Species inside this genus are clinically, agriculturally and biotechnologically related, resulting in growing curiosity in elucidating gene expression dynamics of key metabolic and physiological processes. Reverse-transcription quantitative Polymerase Chain Response (RT-qPCR) is a delicate and particular methodology of quantifying gene expression. A vital…Read More
Comparison of SARS-CoV-2 Detection by Rapid Antigen and by Three Commercial RT-qPCR Tests: A Study from Martin University Hospital in Slovakia
The worldwide pandemic of coronavirus illness 2019 (COVID-19) brought on by the extreme acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is having an incredible affect on the worldwide financial system, well being care programs and the lives of virtually all folks on this planet. The Central European nation of Slovakia reached one of many highest day…Read More
Normalization of SARS-CoV-2 viral load via RT-qPCR provides higher-resolution data for comparison across time and between patients
The 2020 pandemic has reworked the world and elicited hundreds of research to raised perceive the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Viral load has been a typical measure to observe remedy therapies and affiliate viral dynamics with affected person outcomes; nevertheless, strategies related to viral load have diverse throughout research. These variations have the potential to sacrifice the…Read More
Selection and Validation of Reference Genes for RT-qPCR Analysis in Aegilops tauschii (Coss.) under Different Abiotic Stresses
Aegilops tauschii (Coss.) is an aggressive and severe annual grass weed in China. Its DD genome is a wealthy supply of genetic materials and performs higher beneath totally different abiotic stress circumstances (salinity, drought, temperature, and so on.). Reverse-transcribed quantitative polymerase chain response (RT-qPCR) is a dependable method for reference gene choice and validation. This work…Read More
