RNA was extracted from canine blood using the Quick-RNA Whole Blood kit and used for PCR amplification for cloning canine TREM-1. TREM-1 expression was shown to be an amplifier or pro-inflammatory responses and has potential to be a biomarker for infection and pneumonia.Li, J et al. Expression and function of triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells-1 (TREM-1) on canine neutrophils. Developmental and Comparative Immunology. 2011.
The Quick-RNA Whole Blood kit was used to purify 200 ul human blood and RNA was used to generate cDNA for cloning. Data suggests that the SNPs of aminopeptidase ERAP1 can encode for different normal, hypo-, or hyper- functional activities.Reeves, E et al. Naturally Occurring ERAP1 Haplotypes Encode Functionally Distinct Alleles with Fine Substrate Specificity. The Journal of Immunology. 2013.
HCV RNA was extracted from sera of human patients using the Quick-RNA Whole Blood kit and used for amplification and Roche 454 pyrosequencing. Results reveal that more genotype 1a isolates were associated with resistance to protease inhibitors.Margeridon-Thermet, S et al.
