The highest level of Kisspeptin in normozoospermic males as compared to oligo teratozoospermic which had low sperm count and normal morphology (Table) in this pilot study directs us to further investigate and compare the impact of Kisspeptin on male reproductive axis by its impact on sperm count, motility and morphology in fertile and infertile males on a bigger sample of population.
Agilent expects the demand for therapeutic oligo manufacturing to grow near 10% each year through 2025, to over $750 million by 2025.
Agilent Technologies and SomaLogic announced a multi-year supply agreement whereby Agilent will supply customized high-fidelity oligo microarrays for use in the nucleic acid detection step within SomaLogic's novel SOMAscan assay, a protein measurement platform with applications across basic and clinical research, diagnostics, and pharmaceutical discovery and development.
Total revenues of USD25.4m were collected for fiscal 2018, up over total revenues of USD10.8m in fiscal 2017, due to increasing sales of genes, oligo pools and DNA libraries, which increased 136% year over year, as well as the introduction of our NGS tools products across all geographies and market segments.
The DOJ identified in a statement the accused as Lilibeth Oligo who was arrested by operatives of the Philippine National Police-Women and Children Protection Center (PNP-WCPC).
In a decision made public on Monday, sentenced to suffer life imprisonment and a fine of P2 million was Lilibeth 'Ate Joan' Oligo.
The locations of these oligo probes span more than 150 kb between exons 1b and 2 of ABL1 (Abl36: at exon 1b, Abl40: 40 kb 3 to exon 1b, Abl42: 60 kb 3 to exon 1b, Abl45: 90 kb 3' to exon 1b, Abl47: 110 kb 3' to exon 1b and Abl50: 140 kb 3' to exon 1b).
Perhaps the biggest problem labs face in managing their oligo usage is that most synthesis providers deliver much larger volumes of DNA than their workflows require.
Surprisingly, only one out of the used oligo sets, including the most internal ones, gave rise to amplicons (see Figure S2 and Table S1).
Another approach is based on non cross-linking or salt induced aggregation of AuNPs where only one oligo probe complementary to a target gene need to be designed.
