Oncogene 36(15), 2074-2084. Glutamine activates STAT3 to control cancer cell proliferation independently of glutamine metabolism. 2017

Cacace, A., Sboarina, M., Vazeille, T., and Sonveaux, P.

Notes: These authors report that glutamine promotes proliferation of cancer cells independently of its use as a metabolic fuel or as a precursor of glutathione, and that glutamine also activates transcription factors hypoxia-inducible factor-1, mammalian target of rapamycin and c-Myc, but these factors do not mediate the effects of glutamine on cancer cell proliferation. During the study, total RNA was isolated from cells using the Maxwell® RSC instrument,  ATP levels were measured using the CellTiter-Glo® Assay and intracellular glutamine and glutamate were measured using the Glutamine/Glutamate-Glo™ Assay. HIF-1 and PHD activities were measured using the Dual-Luciferase® Reporter Assay.

Appl. Plant Sci. 2, apps. 1400048. Paramagnetic cellulose DNA isolation improves DNA yield and quality among diverse plant taxa. 2014

Moeller, J.R. et al.

Notes: The authors evaluated the Maxwell 16 instrument and paramagnetic cellulose particles for the extraction of plant DNA from 25 different plant species. They compared the results to those obtained using Qiagen's DNease plant mini kit, and a CTAB-based method. They found the Maxwell System to be a promising alternative to other technologies for plant DNA isolation.  (4564)
