Neuromics has a wide offering of transfection reagents that are perfect for both in vivo and in vitro applications. We take pride in seeing our product used in research, which is certainly true of our transfection reagents (see here).
Furthermore, we'd like to highlight a recent use of our n-Fect Transfection Kit (cat.# NF30150) in a doctoral thesis recently published. The paper looked into the neuroscience of alcohol addiction, looking towards the purinergic family receptor P2X4, which has been linked to alcohol addiction in mouse models. Using our n-Fect Transfection Kit, the molecular and cellular mechanisms linking P2X4 expression and voluntary alcohol consumption are explored. Our n-Fect reagents were used on brain slices containing the ventral tegmental area (VTA) of mice. They conclude that purinergic control of VTA neurons is a neurotransmitter system that should be further studied as a target for alcohol dependence drugs.
