Welcome to the kbDNA

Publishing Lab

Information plays a structural role in scientific research. At kbDNA, we perceive information as the most valuable material any organization can offer. That is why we dedicate our efforts to continuously providing novel, relevant data and insight to all researchers. Our pieces present organizational theories via opinion-editorials and trend analysis white papers. Technical notes, protocols and figures are all generated straight from the lab team to support design of experiments and application technique. The kbDNA Publishing Lab is designed to bridge research labs with the often-unfamiliar knowledge of the manufacturing lab that could be a valuable resource.

Characterization of Multi-Protein Complexes (MPCs) by BN-PAGE

Multi-protein complexes (MPCs) play a crucial role in signaling. Blue native polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (BN-PAGE) can be used for one-step isolation of MPCs from biological membranes/organelles and total cell and tissue homogenates under native conditions.

Difficult-To-Express Proteins Are Not Going to Solve Themselves

It always seems like it’s raining recombinant proteins, until an experiment requires a difficult target. Then it just seems like an endless loop of identical catalogs from different companies. This has been a growing source of frustration for both manufacturers and researchers. Read our break-down about the difficult-to-express situation and what technology we believe bring hope to solutions...
