Dr. Rohit Mehra:Realizing the potential of lon noncoding RNA as a cancer biomarker.
Interview with Dr. Rohit Mehra
Realizing the potential of lon noncoding RNA as a cancer biomarker.
From NGS discovery to validation with RNA In Situ Hybridization.
“We found RNAscope technology fast and easy to use, this technology also allows us to directly visualize gene expression in the target tissue of interest ....Also, only one 4 micron FFPE section is sufficient to give us all this information.” Download PDF
Dr. Nallasivam Palanisamy:Development of Prostate Cancer Personalized Medicine.
Interview with Dr. Nallasivam Palanisamy
Development of Prostate Cancer Personalized Medicine.
Advancing analysis of prostate tumor molecular heterogeneity by combined immunohistochemistry and novel RNA in situ hybridization.
“Given the unique probe design and detection chemistry of the RNAscope method, we were able to get results with high specificity and sensitivity for many probes that we have used in my laboratory. To date we don’t have any comparable technology for the reliable detection of RNA in FFPE tissues other than RNAscope.” Download PDF
Dr. Alexy Pronin:Exploring GPCR expression in the eye.
Interview with Dr. Alexy Pronin
Exploring GPCR expression in the eye.
From discovery with NGS to spatial and quantitative expression confirmation with RNAscope® technology.
“Because RNAscope can detect expression of multiple genes in parallel, it can tell us whether those genes discovered through RT-PCR are co-expressed in the same cell or not – information that is very valuable and hard to obtain by other means.” Download PDF
Dr. Sarah Getu and Saskia Smits:Detecting a Novel Circovirus in Foxes with Meningoencephalitis - How custom RNAscope® assay probes are enhancing viral understanding
Interview with Dr. Sarah Getu and Saskia Smits
Detecting a Novel Circovirus in Foxes with Meningoencephalitis - How custom RNAscope® assay probes are enhancing viral understanding
The burden of infectious diseases on human health worldwide has markedly increased over the past few decades, and most of these emerging events are caused by viruses originating from the animal world. Understanding the roots of viral behavior in animal hosts is therefore vital, and this is a primary focus of Sarah Getu’s and Saskia Smits’s work at the Department of Viroscience, Erasmus MC. They here explain how the creation of a custom RNAscope® in situ hybridization (ISH) probe allowed them to localize a newly discovered circovirus to neurologic lesions in foxes, providing valuable information to support causation.
