Ligase reaction problem

... an image you can see below. Here, I want to ask whether it is enough base lenght for ligase reaction via thermostable ligase in 63 C (Protocol: 5 cycle at 95 C-30 s and 63 C-4 min) I think I take cross reaction because of this dimer but I am not sure. Is it possible to discard this short undesired ...

Biological Immortality and Immortalised Cell lines

... are several methods can be used to generate immortalized cell lines. One method is to introduce a viral gene that partially deregulates the cell cycle, such as EBV, SV40 T antigens and HPV-16 E6/7 gene. Artificial expression of key proteins required for immortality is another approach to induce ...

Re: The evolution of facilitation and semelparity

... meant r selected. This given semelparous species we shall call A. Now A, being an annual species, has a very short life history. Its entire life cycle will be completed in a year or less, and thus we might presume that during this time, it has to go about its business of development, maturation ...

Cancer = Mutation: Stopping Mutation Would Cure Cancer?

... do not actively divide in adult humans at all, these include e.g. neurons and muscle cells. Both irradiation and chemotherapy disrupt the cell cycle and thus mainly affect fast growing cells who are constantly dividing. Irradiation does this mostly by introducing so many errors to the cell's ...
