Quantification by Ultrafiltration and Immunofixation Electrophoresis Testing (QUIET) for monoclonal serum free light chains
The current state of the art: Plasma cell myelomas is a plasma cell disorder that is associated with the presence of monoclonal immunoglobulin or fragments secreted by a B-cell clone. It can be detected and monitored by the presence of free monoclonal light chains. Currently, the serum free-light-chain (sFLC) assay is the most analytically sensitive...

A Mouse Model for Mental Disorders and Epilepsy
Current State of the Art The Neuregulin/ErbB4 signaling pathway is involved in GABAergic neurotransmission, an important inhibitory neurotransmission that regulates several processes in the central nervous system including muscle tone. Aberrant GABAergic function has been implicated in Schizophrenia, Schizo-affective disorder and in Epilepsy....

A Method for Multiple Site-Directed Mutagenesis of More than 10 Sites
Current State of the Art: Being able to genetically manipulate a living system is an essential tool in understanding how living systems work. Site directed mutagenesis strategies allow researchers to change DNA sequences to determine how this will influence the function of a protein or important DNA regulatory element. Site-Directed mutagenesis...

Hsp110 Plays a Critical Role in Tau Hyperphosphorylation and Tauopathies (e.g., Alzheimer’s Disease, ALS, Parkinson’s, and Others)
State of the Art:Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), are considered to be protein misfolding disorders. Heat shock proteins provide a line of defense against protein misfolding disorders and are among the most potent suppressors of neurodegeneration in animal models. Several different heat shock proteins...

Protocol To Differentiate Adult-Type Neural Stem Cells Using Novel Ceramide Analogs (NCAs) and Sphingosine-1-Phosphate Receptor Agonists (SRAs)
Use of Sphingolipids in cell culture to inhibit pluripotent stem cell-derived teratoma formation The current state of the art: Stem cells are capable of self-renewal into more and differentiation specialized cells, making them one of the most promising restorative medicine. However, the pluripotent stem cells can form fast-growing, noncancerous...

Three-Dimensional Tumor Holder and Ruler in Live Mouse
Current State of the Art: In preclinical studies, subcutaneous tumor volume is measured by calibers and other imaging systems such as CT, MRI, and ultrasonography to monitor tumor growth, disease progression, and response to treatments. The imaging system measure tumors in sedative animals in three dimensions. On the other hand, calibers measure two...
