Q1: What strains is this kit compatible with?
RT-PCR was used to analyze S1 nuclease protection using RNA extracted from Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains with the YeaStar RNA kit. Researchers showed that histone H2B monoubiquitylation and it deubiquitylation are related in gene activation.Henry, KW et al. Transcriptional activation via sequential histone H2B ubiquitylation and deubiquitylation, mediated by SAGA-associated Ubp8. Genes & Development. 2003.
The YeaStar RNA kit was used to extract total RNA from Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells and spheroblasts for downstream qRT-PCR quantification. The WEE1 kinase was found to be an epigenetic modulator that inhibits transcription of histone genes.Mahajan, K et al. H2B Tyr37 phosphorylation suppresses expression of replication-dependent core histone genes. Nature Structural & Molecular Biology. 2012.
Researchers found that two positive feedback loops regulated by Gal1p and Gal3p affect network activity and induce bimodal distribution of gene expression. The YeaStar RNA kit was used for yeast RNA extraction for real-time qPCR.Venturelli, OS et al. Synergistic dual positive feedback loops established by molecular sequestration generate robus bimodal response. PNAS. 2012.
