Improved RNA extraction from neurons


Efficient isolation of specific, intact, living neurons from the adult brain is problematic due to the complex nature of the extracellular matrix consolidating the neuronal network. Here, researchers from the RIKEN Institute present significant improvements to the protocol for isolation ...

A method for extracting high-quality RNA from diverse plants for next-generation sequencing and gene expression analyses

To study expression in plants, high-quality RNA must be extracted in quantities sufficient for subsequent cDNA library construction. Field-based collections are often limited in quantity and quality of tissue and are typically preserved in RNAlater. Obtaining sufficient and high-quality yield ...
