Scientist Solutions: International Life Science Community By Scientists For Scientists

Thanks to our sponsors who make this site possible
varsha' Bench [how it works]
My Bench Space is your space on Scientist Solutions, with both a private area where you can keep track of your account settings and favorite postings, and a public area where you can upload your picture, customize your profile, or start a blog

My Summary
Keeps a log of the topics you've started, the replies you've made, protocols or events you've posted, etc. Your summary will show up in your public profile.

My Blogs
You can create as many blogs as you like. They'll be viewable by anyone who looks at your profile, and they will also be indexed and listed in The Forums section of Scientist Solutions

My Lab Drawer (private)
As you browse through Scientist Solutions, you may see a topic, event, job or protocol that you'd like to store so that you can find it again easily. By clicking the "Save to My Bench Space" button next to any item on our site, you will put that item in your lab drawer for future reference.
You can also add fellow scientists to your lab drawer by clicking the "Save this scientist to My Bench Space" link next to that member's name in their posts or Bench Space profiles.

My PubMed Alerts (private)
This really cool tool allows you to set up email notifications whenever and article in your area of interest (specified by keyword is published in PubMed

Posted new topic in Mitochondria Research forum   MItochondria and neurodegeneration

MItochondrial damage or dysfunction appears to be an important component of several neurodegenerative disease such as Alzhimer's. Parkinson's, Nuntington's and ALS. MItochonria are susceptible to oxidative stress as well as damage due to protein aggregation in aforementioned diseases. here are som ...

Replied to topic in Protein Detection (Western blots, gels, IP) forum   Maximum blocking time?

I usually block for a minimum of 1 hour at room temp to a maximum of 16 hours in cold room. I have never tried blocking for days in a row. The instances where I had to wait till Monday to do Western blot, I would block my membranes for a few hours on Friday/Sat and then store the membrane in plain ...

Replied to topic in Proteomics forum   what happened to my 2D gel?

Your 2D looks fine for a first run. It would help to mention the nature of your sampe and amount of protein loaded. Your sample has a few abundant proteins that you see on the gels. Many of them have post-translational modification (phsophorylation, acetrylation etc) which show up as a series of spo ...

Replied to topic in Proteomics forum   2D PAGE of wet plant proteins a problem?

I suspect that your extraction protocol does not remove lipids and/or DNA/RNA from protein samples. I have never run a 2D gel for plant samples but try to follow the protocol in this paper and see if it reduces streaking. ...

Replied to topic in Protein Detection (Western blots, gels, IP) forum   Native PAGE Problems in Protein Migration

Hi Prashant, It is easy to test if your protein oligomers have disulfide bonds. Run another native PAGE with your sample. This time add beta-ME or 1mM DTT to one half of the sample and another without. If there were to be disulfides, you would see that your protein bands would run much faster and ...

Replied to topic in Microbiology forum   Growth profile

If the bacteria can grow in liquid culture such as Leuria Bertani broth (LB), you can grow the cbacterium in in that broth at a specific temperature such as 37C with shaking. The growth is measured every hour or half by measuring OD (optical density) of the culture. broth, temperature may vary depen ...

Replied to topic in Proteomics forum   2 dimensional gel electrophoresis

It is a good possibility that your proteins are not solubilized in the sample buffer. If they are in big aggregates, they would not enter the gel. It is also possible that you are trying to solubilize too much prtein in a small volume of sample buffer so there is not wnough of urea or detergent for ...

Replied to topic in Protein Detection (Western blots, gels, IP) forum   problem in stacking gel

I would try washing the wells with distilled water prior to loading to wash off any unpolymerized acrylamide. You can do this by removing the combs and placing the gels in a clean container of water so that the gels are submerged and water enters into the wells. You can place the gels in the run ...
