Investigating S-acylation of the SARS-Cov-2 Spike Protein Leads to New Insights into Viral Infectivity

A better understanding of coronavirus biology can enable development of new antivirals to help stop COVID-19 and prevent future pandemics. In recent work, Puthenveetil et al. characterized S-acylation of the Spike (S) protein of SARS-CoV-2. This post-translational modification is known to be important to the viral replication cycle of other viruses across multiple virus families […]

Total Protein Normalization: Which Imager Should You Choose?

Total protein normalization (TPN) has become the preferred method for normalizing Western blot data. But to fully leverage its benefits, you need an imaging system that allows you to multiplex TPN with detection of your target proteins. Fortunately, we have just what you need! Whether you want to combine TPN with near infrared (NIR) fluorescent […]
