Chemist, Biochemist, Biomedical Research Expert Consultant Resume
 

This expert specializes in pharmacology, biophysics, molecular biology, and pathology. Further expertise includes laboratory medicine, mouse brain dissection, synaptosome preparation, and neuronal cell culture. Other related fields of expertise include mouse breeding and flow cytometry, cell culture and transfection, cell fractionation, and northern and western blotting. This expert's specialties also include immunoprecipitation, recombinant DNA cloning, RT-PCR, fluorescent microscopy and sequence alignment analysis and bacterial protein expression.

This expert offers expertise specific to mRNA isolation in vitro AUrich RNA selection by affinity chromatography, cDNA synthesis, cDNA library screening, and BLAST homology searches. More areas include particle mediated gene transfer, PBMC isolation, in vitro transcription and RNA purification, and northern hybridization analysis. More areas of expertise are SDS-PAGE and ECL western blot analysis, ELISA, PCR, RNA gel mobility shift assays, cell culture, protein purification and tat-mediated protein transfection. This expert also has experience with protein kinase assays, sequence analysis, in vitro phosphorylation, protein digestion and peptide isolation, and amino acid hydrolysis.

Additional experience and specialization includes identification of phosphoamino acids by thin layer chromatography, oocyte isolation and in vivo radiolabeling of proteins, affinity purification of antibodies, immunoprecipitation, expression and purification of recombinant protein in E.coli, SDS-PAGE, autoradiography and densitometry, protein and nucleic acid purification, isolation of eukaryotic ribosomes, electrophoresis, germinal vesicle isolation, preparation of whole cell and nuclear transcription extracts, DNase I and copper phenanthroline footprinting, quantitative footprinting, in vitro transcription assays in extract, gel mobility shift assays, western blot analysis, molecular cloning, hybridization analysis.

This expert is highly experienced in areas including DNA and RNA sequencing, radioisotope usage and small animal dissection, influenza virus receptors, slow viruses, Scrapie, Mad Cow and Kuru, UV-light and apoptotic signal transduction, nervous system disorders, Alzheimer's disease, mouse hippocampus, RhoB mRNA and UV light, phosphorylation of xenopus transcription factor IIIA, extracellular regulated kinase controls, upregulation of nucleolin mRNA and protein, inhibition of RNA polymerase III transcription, amyloid precursor protein (APP) production, neurodegenerative disorders, RNA binding protein HuR, ribosomes and the transcription of RNA Polymerase III genes.
