Did you think that sample prep and primer design was straight forward? What impact can the use of different housekeeping genes as controls have on your results? You will be shocked at what you find out.
In this video, Sean Taylor of Bio-Rad Laboratories explains exactly what you must know to perform RT-qPCR according to MIQE standards.
People who carry a high-risk gene for Alzheimer’s disease show changes in their brains beginning in childhood, decades before the illness appears, new research from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) suggests.
The gene, called SORL1, is one of a number of genes linked to an increased risk of late-onset Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of the illness. SORL1 carries the gene code for the sortilin-like receptor, which is involved in recycling some molecules in the brain before they develop into beta-amyloid a toxic Alzheimer protein. SORL1 is also involved in lipid metabolism, putting it at the heart of the vascular risk pathway for Alzheimer’s disease as well.
