• New IPTG Research (2016) 2016-02-03 22:47:23 IPTG mimics allolactase, a lac operon inducer, and is commonly used in scientific research to create proteins. It does not break down as allolactase would, keeping protein creation in steady production depending on IPTG concentration. Below are recent scientific articles that highlight some IPTG&#

  • Protease Inhibitors Fighting HIV 2015-12-17 01:23:27 HIV relies on the host cell it injects itself into to continue the cycle. By implicating road blocks in this process through protease inhibitors, there is a possibility of halting the replication and spread of the HIV virus.  The seven steps of the cycle: The first step of the HIV cycle is binding
  • Protease Inhibitors: Killing Viral Replication 2015-12-12 00:51:39 What Is a Protease Inhibitor? This is best explained with a basic understanding of HIV biology. Firstly, HIV is a virus that attacks the immune system by infecting cells of the immune system. The infection does not kill the cell immediately, but HIV forces the infected cell to make more copies of it
