Die Testes spezifische Expression von Bromodomänen-Proteinen und Untereinheiten des Polycomb-Repressiven-Komplexes sowie deren mögliche Funktionen während der Spermatogenese in Mammalia

Die Spermatogenese ist ein sehr konservierter Prozess von der Fliege bis zu Mammalia, bei dem aus diploiden Spermatogonien haploide Spermatiden entstehen. Bei der Spermatogenese von Mammalia endet die Transkription in frühen, runden Spermatiden. Die für die Spermiogenese benötigten Transkripte werde...

Um die Effizienz des elektrophoretischen Transfers zu überprüfen wurde nach dem Blotten, das SDS-Gel für ca. 2 h in Coomassie-Färbelösung gefärbt und für weitere 2 -3 h mit Coomassie-Entfärber wieder entfärbt um die verbliebenen Proteinbanden auf dem SDS-Gel zu visualisieren. Zum einem kann so überprüft werden, dass wirklich Protein in dem aufgetragenen Proteinextrakt enthalten war, zum anderen kann visuell nachvollzogen werden wie viel des Proteinextraktes nach dem Blotten noch auf dem SDS-Gel verblieben ist.
