Product Focus: NEW Tau antibody from rPepdite -Tau-1A6 Antibody

Tau is a family of six isoforms, derived from a single gene by alternative mRNA splicing1. They vary in size from 352 to 441 amino acids (36.8 to 45.9 kDa), and differ from one another in having three or four microtubule binding repeats (R) of 31-32 amino acids each, and two, one or none amino terminal inserts (N) of 29 amino acids each2.

Tau promotes the assembly and maintains the structure of microtubules in neuronal cells3,4,5. While the fetal brain contains a single isoform of tau (Tau-352) the adult brain has several isoforms. Tau is both phosphorylated and O-GlcNAcylated6. The normal brain tau contains 2-3 moles of phosphate/mole of the protein. In Alzheimer disease tau is hyperphosphorylated, containing 3-4-fold more phosphate/mole of the protein than the normal tau7,8 and is the major protein subunit of paired helical filaments (PHF) that form the neurofibrillary tangles (NFT). NFT accumulation correlates with the clinical progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Tau-1A6 (TA-1002; Patent Pending) is a proprietary rPeptide Tau Monoclonal Antibody that binds all 6 Tau isoforms.

Product Focus: IMISX Plate

The new IMISX Plate, complying with the SBS standard, is an exciting development for LCP crystallization.
The IMISX™ Plate is designed to perform in meso in situ serial X-ray crystallography of soluble and membrane proteins [1].
The 96-well dual-sandwich IMISX™ Plate can be easily setup by hand or with an LCP dispensing robot. An SBS standard 96-well microplate footprint makes this plate compatible with standard robots and imagers.
By combining the standard LCP crystallization plate format with an advanced X-ray transparent thin-film design, the IMISX™ Plate allows for crystal growth and X-ray diffraction data collection like never before.
The thin-film sandwich design used for crystallization can be easily removed in sections and mounted onto an adaptor for use on standard goniometers for in situ X-ray diffraction data collection.
The IMISX™ Plate Goniometer Adaptor is part of the IMISX™ Plate Kit.

Product Focus: New monoclonal antibody for IHC detection of all CALR mutations in Myeloproliferative Neoplasms

Dianova’s newly available monoclonal antibody CAL2 allows the immunohistochemical detection of all types of CALRETICULIN mutations in FFPE bone marrow sections for the first time. CAL2-Immunostaining correlates 100% with results from molecular sequencing technologies (Stein et al. Leukemia, 2015).

This new antibody has a high potential since CALR mutations occur in the majority of patients with JAK2/MPL non-mutated Essential Thrombocythaemia and with JAK2/MPL non-mutated Primary Myelofibrosis (Klampfl et al., N Eng J Med, 2013 / Nanglia et al., N Eng J Med, 2013 ).

So far these mutations are detectable only by molecular assays. This has caused a strong demand for a simple assay. CAL2 immunohistochemistry is a sensitive, rapid and cost-effective method to identify all CALR mutations in Myeloproliferative Neoplasms.


Why is CAL2 able to detect all known types of CALR mutations ?

All types of CALR mutation result in a novel C-terminus. This harbors a common epitope expressed in all kinds of CALR mutations. The CAL2 antibody is directed against this common epitope. Therefore, it can be concluded that the CAL2 antibody is able to detect all CALR mutations.


Application of CAL2 Monoclonal Antibody

CAL2 antibody immunohistochemistry (IHC) is suitable for:

  • a specific, sensitive, rapid and cost-effective identification of different types of CALR mutations in FFPE bone marrow sections
  • excluding JAK2 mutation and therefore diagnosis of PV
  • indication for molecular analysis of CALR mutation for distinguishing type 1 and 2 mutations

Product Focus: Macromolecular Crystallography Screening – In-Meso Crystallization Plate (part of the Lipidic Cubic Phase Plates and Mixer Kit Range)

LCP crystallization is the most popular method for membrane protein structure determination. Experiments are typically done in batch format. However, it is well known from the crystallization of soluble proteins that vapor diffusion can be a lot more powerful. The controlled in meso phase (CIMP) method combines the benefits of LCP and vapor diffusion to push membrane protein crystallization to new limits [1]. The patent-pending In-Meso Crystallization Plate provides an easy start with this revolutionary method.

Advantages

  • Fully automatable method, compatible with any nanoliter robot
  • Combines LCP with vapor diffusion to increase success rate
  • Requires low protein concentrations (2-5 mg/ml)
  • Plate is made from an advanced polymer and is therefore suitable for use under UV and polarized light

Several in meso phases can be reached with the CIMP technology, crystal formation can happen in any of these phases:

  • Hydrated LCP phase: a modified lipidic cubic phase with water contents between 90 and 45%.
  • Lipidic cubic phase (LCP): the classic in meso phase with water contents between 45 and 26%. Batch experiments typically are set up at water contents between 30 and 35%.
  • Lamellar phase: characterized by increased contact between proteins. Water content below 26%.

Relationship between dilution of precipitant solution in the protein well, water content of the equilibrated protein drop, and the in meso phase that can be reached in a given experiment. Adapted from [1].

Product Focus: EV Shuttle Kits – Next generation transfection system using exosomes

EV Shuttle Kits

Working with hard-to-transfect cells?
The EV Shuttle kit takes advantage of the natural ability of exosomes to be internalized and deliver functionally active biomolecules such as nucleic acids into recipient cells. Ready-to-use exosomes derived from human embryonic kidney cells (HEK 293) or murine dendritic cells (JAWS) can be transfected with nucleic acids including siRNA, miRNAs, mRNAs as well as plasmid DNA and added to a variety of hard-to-transfect cells for enhanced functional delivery. In addition, this technology can be used to create stable cell lines which is particularly useful for cells that are refractory to transfection using the piggyBac transposon system. EV shuttles also offer a significant advantage over virus-based transduction methodology because they are non-viral, easy to handle and cost effective method to deliver RNA and DNA into target cells.

Product SheetHuman EV Shuttle Protocol  Mouse EV Shuttle Protocol  

Exosomes as transfection shuttles

  • Delivery to transfection-resistant cells
  • Simple loading protocol
  • Non-viral delivery platform
  • Create stable cell lines using EV shuttles
  • Human and Mouse EV shuttles available

 Easy Exosome Shuttle Loading Protocol

EV shuttle loading procedure

The EV shuttle Kits contains a novel nucleic acid transfer agent (Exo-Fect) that enables the transfection of nucleic acids directly into isolated exosomes. The transfected si/miRNA, mRNA and even plasmid DNA can then be shuttled into target cells via the transfected exosome vesicles. Simply combine the isolated exosomes provided in the kit with Exo- Fect and the nucleic acid of your choice to generate exosome delivery vehicles. The kits come with all of the reagents you need to load nucleic acids into the exosomes and concentrate them for delivery to target cells. The protocol takes less than an hour and is highly efficient at loading nucleic acids into exosomes for transport and delivery.
