5-Fluoroorotic Acid (5-FOA) is widely used in the field of yeast molecular genetics. The toxicity of 5-FOA to yeast cells with a functioning URA3 gene which encodes orotidine-5′-P decarboxylase (OMP decarboxylase), makes it especially useful for the selection and identification of mutant yeast strains. 5-FOA is most often applied with Saccharomyces cerevisiae (URA3), although it has been used in other strains including Schizosaccharomyces pombe (URA4 and URA5), Candida albicans (URA3) and the bacterium E. coli (pyrF). The use of 5-FOA in the yeast 2-hybrid system allows for the construction of activation domain hybrid libraries to identify protein-protein interactions.View product page →
The Bacterial Cell Lysis Kit has been developed for the extraction of biologically active, soluble proteins and inclusion bodies from bacterial cells. The Bacterial Lysis Buffer is a proprietary improvement on the lysozyme based lysis method, which allows extraction of soluble proteins and concurrent removal of nucleic acids (DNA & RNA) released during cell lysis. The kit’s lysis eliminates viscosity build-up, allowing effective clarification with lower centrifugal forces.
Bacterial Lysis Buffer is based on organic buffering agents and utilizes a mild nonionic detergent, chelating agent, and a proprietary combination of various salts and agents to enhance extraction and stability of proteins. Depending on the required downstream application, additional agents such as reducing agents and protease inhibitors may be added into the Bacterial Lysis Buffer. It has been tested for use with several widely used bacterial strains and is recommended for E. coli and gram-negative bacteria.View product page →
IPTG is an analog of galactose that is non-metabolizable and inactivates the lac repressor to induce synthesis of β-galactosidase in E. coli. The expression of cloned genes under the control of the lac operon is induced by IPTG. It is also a substrate for thigalactoside transacetylase and has been reported to induce penicillinase in bacteria.View product page →
The IPTG EZ Pak™ is the fastest and easiest way to make a set amount of sterile IPTG solution. The kit includes preweighed IPTG powder, a sterile filter, and a sterile container for the filtered solution. No need to calculate, simply add the stated amount of deionized H2O, filter, and pour into the labeled bottle for easy usage. The EZ Pak™ includes high quality GoldBio IPTG and the sterile solution is ready for tissue culture, bacterial media, or any other appropriate use.View product page →
The Mammalian Cell Lysis Buffer is ideal for extracting total, biologically active, soluble proteins from mammalian cells. Rather than using mechanical means for cell lysis, the mammalian cell lysis buffer simplifies the process, utilizing a mild, nonionic detergent, chelating agent and a proprietary combination of various salts and agents to improve the extraction and stability of proteins. It is compatible with electrophoresis and chromatographic applications, as well as being compatible with various kinases, protease inhibitors and immunoassays such as ELISA and RIA.View product page →
