The human body functions in amazing ways to keep foreign invaders from entering. Upon detection, immune cells act to neutralize and remove pathogens. They tag them as dangerous, endocytosis, phagocytosis, and pinocytosis. Blood proteins called antibodies essentially sniff out specific antigens, discerning between self and non-self particles. Then, they appropriately dispose of them. Unfortunately, the body gets mixed… Read more »
Proteins are one of four macromolecule building blocks that are necessary for any form of life. That’s why being able to analyze proteins with a protein assay is crucial in both research and diagnosis. Total protein assay kits can be used to determine the total protein concentration of a sample. To help you choose the… Read more »
