The Webinar will focus on identifying contaminants and offer tips for safeguarding against contamination, October 9, 2014 (PRWEB) October 07, 2014 The risk of contamination is a familiar challenge often faced daily by cell culture labs. When contamination goes undetected or worse, is ignored, or when cell lines are misidentified, the reliability and reproducibility of experimental results is placed in jeopardy. If a lab has experienced any of these vulnerabilities, a solution is at hand....

A team led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has discovered an unusual bacterial protein that attaches to virtually any antibody and prevents it from binding to its target. Protein M, as it is called, probably helps some bacteria evade the immune response and establish long-term infections. If follow-up studies confirm Protein M's ability to defeat the antibody response, it is likely to become a target of new antibacterial therapies. The protein's unique ability to...

Fast-evolving microbe lost a key chunk of its genome after jumping to new host A new study of a devastating bird disease that spread from poultry to house finches in the mid-1990s reveals that the bacteria responsible for the disease evolves at an exceptionally fast rate. What's more, the fast-evolving microbe has lost a key chunk of its genome since jumping to its new host, scientists were surprised to find. The missing portion contained the genes that made up the microbe's immune system,...

Mycoplasma genitalium is a small parasitic bacterium that lives on the ciliated epithelial cells of the primate genital and respiratory tracts. It is the smallest known free-living bacterium. Up until 2002 it was also considered to be the organism with the smallest genome. M. genitalium was isolated in 1980 from urethral specimens of two male patients with non-gonococcal urethritis. Infection is fairly common and can be transmitted between partners during unprotected sex. It can be treated...
