Emerging diversity of the CRISPR-Cas system in cholera phages

Interactions of bacteria and their phages, which are viruses hostile to bacterial survival lead to the evolution of numerous phage resistance mechanisms.  CRISPR-Cas (clustered regularly interspersed short palindromic repeats-CRISPR-associated proteins) is such a defense system of bacteria. The

Angiotensin II actions on distal regulatory elements promote vascular dysfunction and hypertension

Cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension (high blood pressure) and atherosclerosis (blocked blood vessels) lead to heart attacks and strokes, and are highly prevalent worldwide. Furthermore, these complications are significantly accelerated in patients with diabetes. Angiotensin II (AngII)

Old school wins: outbreak investigation of foodborne salmonellosis

Salmonellosis is one of the most common foodborne diseases in humans posing a major public health concern worldwide. It is caused by ingestion of contaminated food with non-typhoidal Salmonella. The most common foods that have been linked

Using misglycosylation as a way of visualizing CRISPR-mediated knock-outs of the Conserved Oligomeric Golgi Complex

Intracellular membrane trafficking is a crucial, bi-directional process that occurs in every eukaryotic cell. This process is similar to a cellular mailing system in that it processes, packages, and ‘ships’ things to their correct location. Membrane trafficking

Genetic modification for crop improvement

Genetic modification (GM) of crops involves the transfer of genes for specific traits between distantly related plant species using recombinant DNA technology known as transgenesis. Besides, crops can also be modified by silencing or overexpressing its endogenous

Cyagen Biosciences – Helping you choose the right animal model for your research

While many animal models are available “ off the shelf ” through various repositories and collaborations, generation of novel animal models has allowed for more effective studies, not limited by previously derived lines/ strains. Historically, researchers have
