An antigen that may or may notbe present on the surface of human bloodcells. If a person's blood has the antigen, their blood type ispositive, if they do not, it is negative. The rh factor isimportant mainly because if a woman who is Rh- conceives a child who is Rh_, themixing of their bloods in the placenta may provoke an immune reaction in the mother that can cause a life-threatening agglutination of the foetus'blood cells.The Rh factor is so named because it was first identified in rhesus monkeys.

mRNA vs. cell reporter assay

... different way: Maybe the reporter system provides us with more information than RT-PCR/Western blot, because it proves that the transcription factor is actually active too, not just present? I thought it is enough to detect a significant increase in the expression by Western blot and we could ...

mRNA vs. cell reporter assay

Hi, I have a GFP reporter cell line that drives GFP expression upon activation of a transcription factor. In theory, I can study transcription factor activation via the GFP signal, or by measuring the mRNA of the transcription factor. I wonder what are the pros and cons ...
