Taqman probe design using FISH probe (need help)

... it will remain hybridized at PCR extension temperature (but not so high as a fish probe) and will be hydrolysed by Taq DNA polymerase at every replication, thus releasing the fluorescence (quenched in intact probe) that will be measured to quantify the starting level of template. Therefore, ...

... eye color change after a period of time? And as well, since the telomere are always (exept for telomerases treated cells) left and cut away after replication, would it be possible to use a retro virus with your own DNA to replace the degenrated/short DNA so you could in a way extend the lifespan ...

translation from DNA

... there is amplification of the signal (there can be thousands copies of each mRNA, each giving rise to hundreds of protein molecules), also, during replication of DNA the protein synthesis would have to be shut down and there could be other reasons. But as said, it's always difficult to answer the ...

Re: How did endosymbionts coordinate replication?

If you could link me to a scholarly article that describes how after endosymbiosis, the bacterial cell and it's eukaryotic host coordinated replication Maybe this helps? http://rstb.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/365/1541/699.full.pdf
