Re:

... discovered) but I don't want to make any false claims. But talking about safe charges... what size would a leyden jar have to be to emulate human capacitance? Because I know even 2 litre bottles of water (suitably modified) are capable of holding dangerous charges... and the human body is substantially ...

Heavy metals, can anyone answer?

... so would probably involve changes in the structure of your cells and organs. I should also point out that voltage will have an effect as well (capacitance is only proportional to the maximum net charge (q) that can be held, which is calculated by q = CV). I’ve also been assuming that you want ...

Re:

... so long as a greater charge can indeed be held)? I suppose, if I was to rephrase, would either heavy metals or electrolytes have any effect on the capacitance of the body, even if minuscule amounts? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitance http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Body_capacitance The reason ...

Electroporation 2-mm or 4-mm?

... case. For mouse cell lines aim for 500 V/cm or 100V for 0.2 cm cuvette and 200V for 0.4 cm cuvette. This is a good start. Use 500 uF or 960 uF capacitance setting for mammalian cell lines. Good luck, Hi Tom - Vitamin D does NOT work well for THP-1. You need to use Retinoic Acid at 10 nM or ...

Effect of phosphoric acid on ATP and kinases in vitro

Hi, Thanks, i am adding it in to a high capacitance buffer so will check that the pH doesn't change. If it solely works then by competing for ATP binding then that would be ideal. Is the H3PO (presumably mostly H3PO4 in such a weak solution) ...
