Damn, it's been removed. I reckon God's finally gettin pissed of that we aren't giving him the props he deserves for sitting around for seven whole days and working out how many limbs, lungs, eyes etc. that every species on this planet should have, and he's taking steps to get rid of evolutionist pr...

Very interesting topic. Made me think about the first humans to find (what they believed to be) a non-human life form. They went to Africa, and made them their slaves. They assumed that they were their inferiors. I am in no way condoning this reaction, I am trying to illustrate a point. That it seem...

Oh, yeah, was wondering about what you're trying to analyse here? Are you using the ELISA to look for the presence of carbonylated species? Or are you trying to look at the extent of carbonylation on each protein? I think the first method will be easy to do with an ELISA, but the second may be prett...

When you do an ELISA (or at least, how I did an ELISA, the one and only time I've done one) was using a normal 96-well plate, with nothing pre-attached to the bottom of the plate. Each of the components of the sandwich are added during the experiment. So the antibody (or crude extract, depending on ...

Haha, good way to look at it hanhan. I understand what you're saying draco, but I think there are many other factors involved, that we don't know about. There are probably many positive feedback loops involved in the production of greenhouse gases. But there may also be some negative feedback system...

I'd call this myth busted.

I think it can often depend on the person. My flatmate is pretty messy... But overall, Apes. Definitely.

A sandwich ELISA has three components, two antibodies and a molecule that is recognised by both of the antibodies. The molecule is most often a protein, but theoretically could be any molecule that has an antibody that will specifically recognise it. I know that antibodies can be made for many non-p...

I don't really understand the first question, there are many proteins involved in ATP production.breakdown, can't think what that one they are looking for, can you shed any more light on the question? For the second question, it is very simple if you find out how ATP releases its energy. And that is...

You waited about 3 minutes for a response? You have to wait at least a day for a response on here. Also, if you want help from the many knowledgable people on here, you have to be willing to do a little work yourself. People are much more responsive if you fully explain what it is you're after, and ...
