To detect miRNA-derived biomarkers a whole-RNA purification from the sample has to be performed. For an identification of yet unknown miRNAs it is required to clone and sequence the purified sRNAs. In most cases miRNAs which are present in a sample at low concentrations are further depleted during the purification steps or even get lost, which renders in the results of the analysis non-representative and increases the risk to overlook potential biomarkers.
The present invention is based on the finding, that the plant-viral protein ’Helper component proteinase’ (HC-Pro) can be used for a binding of sRNAs including miRNAs. Thus, HC-Pro can be used in order to enrich and to isolate sRNAs from samples. In addition a cupin protein was identified which clearly improves the binding of HC-Pro for sRNAs.

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.
When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure
Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
