LSBio offers a broad selection of over 13,000 cDNAs, each available in either a cloning vector or one of 14 different ready-to-use expression vectors.

Male hormones accelerate DNA ageing — in sheep, at least

30 July, 2021

The removal of male hormones in sheep delays ageing of DNA, and also drives feminine characteristics of DNA and the chemical tags it holds.

Cas9 alternatives empower next-gen CRISPR applications

22 July, 2021

Recent CRISPR discoveries include many new cutting enzymes, widening the scope of DNA engineering.

Treating COVID-19 with CRISPR, updated AstraZeneca advice

15 July, 2021

A CRISPR gene editing tool has suppressed replication of SARS-CoV-2 in a test tube model, and ATAGI has released its latest statement on the AstraZeneca vaccine.

A remote control for targeted gene transfer into cells

05 July, 2021

Researchers introduce genetic information with an optical 'remote control', which means only cells that are illuminated with red light take up the desired genes.

Comprehensive 'RNA Atlas' completed

22 June, 2021

It is claimed to be one of the most comprehensive catalogues of the human transcriptome ever, helping to deepen our understanding of known RNA molecules and discover new RNAs.

New genetic form of ALS discovered in children

15 June, 2021

Researchers have discovered cases of ALS that are linked to variations in the DNA sequence of SPLTC1, a gene responsible for manufacturing a class of fats called sphingolipids.

How does the hepatitis C virus evade the immune system?

04 June, 2021

Researchers have discovered a novel molecular mechanism by which the hepatitis C virus interferes with the host's immune system to cause chronic liver infection.

Revealed: toxic RNA's role in Huntington's disease

03 June, 2021

An RNA species called small CAG repeat RNA plays a destructive role in the pathogenesis of Huntington's disease by causing damage to the genetic materials in the genome.

Protein mutations cause rare genetic disease in children

01 June, 2021

The neurological disorder is caused by mutations in a protein called GEMIN5 — one of the key building blocks of a protein complex that controls RNA metabolism in neurons.
