Epigenetics of Aging eBook

Targets & Methods for Aging Research

Epigenetics of Aging eBook

In this eBook, we are inspired by both the original landmark publication “The Hallmarks of Aging” by López-Otín et al., Cell, 2013 and their 2023 update (López-Otín et al., Cell, 2023), which now includes processes ranging from epigenetic alterations to genomic instability, stem cell exhaustion to inflammation, changes in nuclear architecture and other key features of aging at the cellular level. With Active Motif’s expertise in epigenetics, our focus here will be on the aging hallmark of epigenetic changes, with an emphasis on key biological targets and pathways as presented during a series of seminars during Chromatin-Con 2023: Epigenetics of Aging. Several hallmarks are discussed, as well as methods for their analysis featured during this event.

ChIP 101 eBook

A Beginner’s Guide to Performing Chromatin Immunoprecipitation Assays

ChIP 101 eBook

The chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) assay changed the way researchers can study protein-DNA interactions and epigenetic modifications of histones. However, ChIP assays are difficult. ChIP protocols have many steps that each require optimization, making it hard to consistently generate high-quality data you can trust.

This free eBook makes it easy to become a ChIP assay expert by covering the main steps in the ChIP workflow and giving pointers on how to achieve the best results.

Neuroepigenetics eBook

A Guide to Getting Started with Epigenetics in Neuroscience Research

Neuroepigenetics eBook

There is increasing evidence that many neurodevelopmental, neurodegenerative, and psychiatric disorders are caused at least in part by aberrant epigenetic modifications.

As a result, neuroscience researchers are now beginning to investigate the epigenetic mechanisms responsible for regulation of gene expression in neuronal cells and how this impacts normal brain function. This free eBook will help you get started with epigenetics and guide you towards the best approaches to take to answer your specific research questions.

microRNAs in Cancer eBook

Guide to Studying miRNAs and Performing Luciferase-Based Reporter Screens

microRNAs in Cancer eBook

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been associated with essentially all aspects of cancer, including diagnosis, staging, progression, prognosis, and response to treatment. Their misexpression can contribute to tumor initiation, growth, and metastasis, making miRNAs attractive therapeutic targets and potentially useful diagnostic tools.

The rapid advancements in microRNA (miRNA) research requires new experimental tools to enable scientists to accurately and efficiently study the role of miRNAs in cancer and other diseases. This MicroRNAs in Cancer eBook summarizes the current miRNA research approaches and outlines how to design and execute an miRNA target screen.
