"One of the topics in the lab is to understand the role of the glutamate receptors of the delta family in the brain. I am currently using co-immunoprecipitation and western blots to investigate the GluD1 interactome and signaling. I also use immunolabelling of brain slices and cell culture to examine the distribution of GluD1 and its partners. I am very happy to use the fluorescent JIR antibodies suitable for the LiCor Odyssey detection system and directed against the IgG light chains for my co-IP experiments. Of course, many other JIR antibodies are present in our antibody toolbox."

"Since 2014 I'm doing my PhD with help of the Charité Berlin in the otolaryngology at the Unfallkrankenhaus (accidental hospital) Berlin. There I investigate a near-infrared laser pre-treatment as a protective mechanism to prevent sensorineural hearing damage due to traumatic interventions of the cochlea, since it is known that after noise traumas not only the peripheral but especially the basal central structures and thus the physiology of auditory perception are significantly changed. It is important for me to get results from immunohistological stainings with help of your antibodies like AlexaFluor for counting hair cells in the cochlea after pre-treatment and noise exposure."

“In our lab we are focusing on the Hippo signaling pathway and its role in animal organ growth control and oncogenesis. In my PhD project I am working on identifying and characterizing new components of the Hippo pathway using Drosophila as my animal model. Acquiring nice confocal images of my samples is my favourite part of the job. My research largely depends on good antibody stainings. A significant part of the secondary antibodies we use in our lab come from Jackson ImmunoResearch. I use these reagents on weekly basis and I can hardly imagine my research without them.”
Figure: Control RNAi (Top) and warts (wts) RNAi (bottom) co-expressed with GFP in the Drosophila wing imaginal disc. Expanded (ex) lacZ is the activity readout for the Hippo pathway effector Yorkie. Depletion of the Warts protein in the GFP positive region results in tissue overgrowth and induction of the Yorkie activity reporter ex-lacZ. Cy3 anti-mouse from Jackson ImmunoResearch was used to stain for beta-galactosidase to visualise ex-lacZ.

"Our group is primarily focused on Huntington's Disease (HD). Having a multidisciplinary approach, we cover a broad range of interest in HD research; ranging from behavioural deficits in HD; basic physiopathology at biochemical, and bio-molecular levels; new biomarkers for disease onset follow-up, new pathogenic mechanisms; and of course, potential therapeutic routes and approaches including improving neurotrophic support, stem cell and gene therapy, etc. My PhD project is focused on using drugs with potential to improve neurotrophic support in the striatum which is the region earliest and most severely affected in HD. We have described possible uses of known drugs as HD therapies, and to evaluate that we focus on the effect in neuronal branching of compounds compared to known neurotrophin BDNF, to perform these studies we perform immunofluorescence staining which includes exclusively Jackson ImmunoResearch secondary antibodies (Cy3, AlexaFluor 488 etc.) which are the standard in our laboratory."
During 2015 we ran a wordsearch puzzle competition at scientific exhibitions and meetings, we entered all correct entries received into an iPad prize draw.
"In my group we are specially interested in elucidating the effects of TGF-beta in liver physiology and pathology. In particular, my project is focused on the effects that the protein caveolin-1 exerts on the cross-talk between TGF-beta and EGFR signaling pathways in hepatocytes and hepatocellular carcinoma cells."
To thank those who participated in our customer service survey in Spring 2015, we entered all responses received into an iPad prize draw.
"Our lab interest revolves around the structure of chromatin in 3d nuclear space and time. In order to unravel the association of transcription and chromatin structure over time, our lab has adopted as a model the cytokine transcriptional regulation. Before we engage in various next generation techniques, such as ChiP-seq or Hi-C we verify system activation. One way is to study key transcription factors shuttling upon cytokine activation. FITC- or Rhodamine-TRITC-conjugated secondary antibodies from Jackson ImmunoResearch were used to detect on immunofluorescence experiments the translocation to the nucleus of key transcription factors, like those of the SMAD superfamily."
As part of our celebrations for the 10th anniversary JIR-E, the European subsidiary of Jackson ImmunoResearch Laboratories, inc. we awarded sponsorships of €500 to researchers who published during 2014 using our secondary antibodies.
"Our lab does electrophysiology in the turtle spinal cord. To visualize and characterize the neurons that are measured we pump biotin into the measured cell and stain slices of the spinal cord with Streptavidin-Cy3 (016-160-084) and identify the motor neuron by staining for choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) and using anti-goat secondary antibodies conjugated to Alexa Fluor 488® (705-545-147).
Our work is featured on the front cover of the Journal of Neuroscience, February 19th 2014, where ChAT positive motor neurons are green, the measured cell red and blue for DAPI. The secondary antibody allows us to not only to stain the cell body, but also to trace the fine filaments of the motor neurons. Shown here is one of my favorite images of the ventral horn with the motor neuron population.
The low cross reactivity and the broad selection of targets and conjugates gives a great flexibility when doing multiple labeling, especially in an odd species like the turtle."
"We recently published our work in the Journal of Cell Biology with the title "Chk2 prevents mitotic exit when the majority of kinetochores are unattached" with Pubmed ID 24798733. We used FITC- or Rhodamine-TRITC-conjugated secondary antibodies from Jackson ImmunoResearch in Immunofluorescence:"
