... mean? - Only at the level of the cell do the properties of life emerge. - Important properties of weak interactions: They are reversible. They are transient. - Ionic bonds are weakened in water. When this happens they are called ionic attractions. - This type of weak interaction is usually a stabilising ...

Re: Biochemical and Molecular Test

... tumefaciens. The plasmid may be integrated into the genome, resulting in a stable transfection, or may remain independent of the genome, called transient transfection. In either case, DNA coding for a protein of interest is now inside a cell, and the protein can now be expressed. A variety of ...

Growing MDCK Cells on Coverslips

... and have been using glass coverslips coated with poly-L-lysine. The cells sometimes do not stick well to the coverslips and I have found that the transient transfection rate is lower on the coated glass slides than just doing the transfections in the plastic cell culture wells. How do you usually ...
