[…] tegrity was verified on 1.2% agarose gel. First strand cDNA synthesis and qRT-PCR were done as mentioned in Kumar et al. (). Primers used for the qRT-PCR were designed from the deduced sequence using GeneFisher2 Prime designing software ( (Table ). The Sybr chemistry (Kappa Sybr Fast Universal kit) was used for the quantification using the CFX9 […]

Modulation of the Immune Response by Nematode Secreted Acetylcholinesterase Revealed by Heterologous Expression in Trypanosoma musculi

PLoS Pathog
PMCID: 5089771
PMID: 27802350
DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1005998

[…] icidin resistance genes isolated from pMCGFPtubBlast []. Consensus sequences for α tubulin, β tubulin and paraflagellar rod (PFR) genes from other trypanosome species were generated using the program GeneFisher2 (Bielefeld University) and sequences from NCBI nucleotide and TriTryp databases. Degenerate primers for consensus sequences were used to amplify the α-β tubulin IR, the β-α tubulin IR and […]

[…] All quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) oligonucleotide pairs – based on A. nidulans gene sequences (Aspergillus Genome Database, - were designed using the GeneFisher2 web tool ( and produced by Thermo Fisher Scientific (Additional file ). qRT-PCR analyses were performed in a CFX96 Thermal Cycler (Bio- […]


Relevance of miR 21 in regulation of tumor suppressor gene PTEN in human cervical cancer cells

BMC Cancer
PMCID: 4791868
PMID: 26975392
