Application

BIS-TRIS can be used to study biological buffers. BIS-TRIS has been used in a study that synthesized ferritin grafted with temperature-responsive poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PIPAAm-ferritin) by a coupling reaction using PIPAAm and ferritin for obtaining stimuli-responsive biomaterials. BIS-TRIS has also been used in a study that synthesized and described the photochemical properties of oligo- ortho –azobenzenes.

The purpose of our study was to compare two acquired muscle atrophies and the use of myostatin inhibition for their treatment. Myostatin naturally inhibits skeletal muscle growth by binding to ActRIIB, a receptor on the cell surface of myofibers. Because...

The best-understood mechanisms for achieving antibody self/non-self discrimination discard self-reactive antibodies before they can be tested for binding microbial antigens, potentially creating holes in the repertoire. Here we provide evidence for a complementary mechanism: retaining autoantibodies in the repertoire displayed...
