The Bioruptor® uses a unique system to uniformely process multiple samples in sealed tubes of 0.5 ml to 50 ml capacity. The built-in cooling system (water cooler and Single Cycle Valve) ensures high precision temperature control resulting in higher quality samples. An excellent device for shearing chromatin, cell and tissue disruption and many other applications (see below).


To expedite the larger-scale phenotyping of pollen number difference within Arabidopsis family, we have modified an existing method more suitable for our purpose of pollen counting using a Bioruptor®. We grew four plants per genotype. Three flower buds per plant were harvested and dried at 65°C overnight. We collected flower buds with mature pollen, but before the anthers were opened (flower stage 13). We did not use the first and second flowers of the inflorescence, as they tend to show developmentally immature flower morphologies. 30 μl of 5% Tween-20 is added to the dried flower and samples are sonicated using the Bioruptor® Plus with high power mode for 10 cycles (sonication cycle: 30 sec ON, 30 sec OFF) to separate pollen grains from the anthers. Then, all pollen solutions are measured with a cell counter.

    We use the Bioruptor sonication device and the antibody against the histone modification H3K4me3 in our lab. The Bioruptor device is used for the shearing of chromatin in ChIP-Seq experiments and for generation of protein lysates (whole cell extracts). Thanks to the Bioruptor device we achieve excellent and reproducible results in both applications. The H3K4me3 antibody is used in our ChIP-Seq experiments as well as Western Blotting. With this antibody we are able to generate highly enriched ChIP-Seq samples with extremely low background. In Western Blot we can detect one specific, strong band with the H3K4me3 antibody.

    Diagenode provides not only very good products for research but also an excellent customer support.

    The Itaconate Pathway Is a Central Regulatory Node Linking Innate Immune Tolerance and Trained Immunity
    Domínguez-Andrés Jorge, Novakovic Boris, Li Yang, Scicluna Brendon P., Gresnigt Mark S., Arts Rob J.W., Oosting Marije, Moorlag Simone J.C.F.M., Groh Laszlo A., Zwaag Jelle, Koch Rebecca M., ter Horst Rob, Joosten Leo A.B., Wijmenga Cisca, Michelucci Ales
    Sepsis involves simultaneous hyperactivation of the immune system and immune paralysis, leading to both organ dysfunction and increased susceptibility to secondary infections. Acute activation of myeloid cells induced itaconate synthesis, which subsequently mediated innate immune tolerance in human monocytes. In con...

    Interplay of cell–cell contacts and RhoA/MRTF‐A signaling regulates cardiomyocyte identity

    Viral targeting of TFIIB impairs de novo polymerase II recruitment and affects antiviral immunity
    Darya A. Haas, Arno Meiler, Katharina Geiger, Carola Vogt, Ellen Preuss, Georg Kochs, Andreas Pichlmair
    Viruses have evolved a plethora of mechanisms to target host antiviral responses. Here, we propose a yet uncharacterized mechanism of immune regulation by the orthomyxovirus Thogoto virus (THOV) ML protein through engaging general transcription factor TFIIB. ML generates a TFIIB depleted nuclear environment by re-lo...

    HMGB2 Loss upon Senescence Entry Disrupts Genomic Organization and Induces CTCF Clustering across Cell Types
    Zirkel et. al.
    Processes like cellular senescence are characterized by complex events giving rise to heterogeneous cell populations. However, the early molecular events driving this cascade remain elusive. We hypothesized that senescence entry is triggered by an early disruption of the cells’ three-dimensional (3D) ...

    Histamine 1 receptor-Gβγ-cAMP/PKA-CFTR pathway mediates the histamine-induced resetting of the suprachiasmatic circadian clock
    Yoon Sik Kim, Young-Beom Kim, Woong Bin Kim, Seung Won Lee, Seog Bae Oh, Hee-Chul Han, C. Justin LeeEmail author, Christopher S. Colwell and Yang In Kim
    Background Recent evidence indicates that histamine, acting on histamine 1 receptor (H1R), resets the circadian clock in the mouse suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) by increasing intracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) through the activation of CaV1.3 L-type Ca2+ channels and Ca2+-induced Ca2+ release from ryan...

    HNF1β drives glutathione (GSH) synthesis underlying intrinsic carboplatin resistance of ovarian clear cell carcinoma (OCCC)
    Filipa Lopes-Coelho, Sofia Gouveia-Fernandes, Luís G Gonçalves, Carolina Nunes, Inês Faustino, Fernanda Silva, Ana Félix, Sofia A Pereira, Jacinta Serpa
    Chemoresistance to platinum-based antineoplastic agents is a consistent feature among ovarian carcinomas; however, whereas high-grade serous carcinoma (OSC) acquires resistance during chemotherapy, ovarian clear cell carcinoma (OCCC) is intrinsically resistant. The main objective of this study was to explore, in vit...

    LXR-Mediated ABCA1 Expression and Function Are Modulated by High Glucose and PRMT2
    Maryem A. Hussein, Elina Shrestha, Mireille Ouimet, Tessa J. Barrett, Sarah Leone, Kathryn J. Moore, Yann Hérault, Edward A. Fisher, Michael J. Garabedian
    High cholesterol and diabetes are major risk factors for atherosclerosis. Regression of atherosclerosis is mediated in part by the Liver X Receptor (LXR) through the induction of genes involved in cholesterol transport and efflux. In the context of diabetes, regression of atherosclerosis is impaired. We proposed tha...

    Sensitive detection of chromatin-altering polymorphisms reveals autoimmune disease mechanisms.
    Del Rosario RC, Poschmann J, Rouam SL, Png E, Khor CC, Hibberd ML, Prabhakar S
    Most disease associations detected by genome-wide association studies (GWAS) lie outside coding genes, but very few have been mapped to causal regulatory variants. Here, we present a method for detecting regulatory quantitative trait loci (QTLs) that does not require genotyping or whole-genome sequencing. The method...

    Step-by-step preparation of proteins for mass spectrometric analysis.
    Franz T, Li X.
    Nowadays, identification of proteins from biological samples by mass spectrometry is widely used. In principle there are two scenarios. Proteins are pre-fractionated in some way, e.g. by gel electrophoresis or are analyzed as complex mixture (shot gun). Shot gun proteomics became recently more popular, because of te...

    Epigenetic-Mediated Downregulation of μ-Protocadherin in Colorectal Tumours
    Bujko M, Kober P, Statkiewicz M, Mikula M, Ligaj M, Zwierzchowski L, Ostrowski J, Siedlecki JA
    Carcinogenesis involves altered cellular interaction and tissue morphology that partly arise from aberrant expression of cadherins. Mucin-like protocadherin is implicated in intercellular adhesion and its expression was found decreased in colorectal cancer (CRC). This study has compared MUPCDH (CDHR5) expression in ...
