hm.. ?? I do not think that the size of the molecule has much effect on the band intensity in this case? Becoz if the size had substantial influence, the marker DNA that were added would have shown a gradient of band intensity. But that does not happen rite..

yes what navin said is almost correct.. wad i mean is.. after we extract out total RNA from a cell sample.. then we PCR the sample.. then we send the sample for gel electrophoresis. Two (or maybe three) bands will be observed. One band will be the 28S rRNA band, the other is 18S rRNA ( and the third...

28S:18S rRNA ratio

The ratio of 28S:18S rRNA in gel electrophoresis of sample containing total RNA is theoretically 2:1 when the sample rRNA integrity is high (ie. the rRNA is intact). What are the reasons behind this observation?

I have googled the thing but I din find any explanation.


cheers

i think the difference is immunisation can refer to both naturally formed enhanced immunity following pathogen invasion and inoculation with a vaccine to gain immunity. while vaccination = inoculation with vaccine in order to gain immunity against particular diseases. where's dr stein? i believe she...

@Poison colchicin = No vinblastine = No vincristine = No quite close though @Mjhavok Paclitaxel = YES You got it mj. it's exactly wad i have in my mind. i was thinking maybe Taxol or docetaxol is oky. but u got it straight to the bulleyes. it's your turn now Mj. congratulation

no it is not epothilone. it's a good try:D.

IT inhibits cancer growth quiet similarly as epithilone - that is by stabilizing the microtubule so that the cells can't complete mitosis.

cheerz :D
