Potential errors in the measurement of total protein in male rat urine using test strips

Laboratory Animals
G O Evans, C E Parsons

Abstract

Widely differing results were obtained for urinary protein determinations in male rats using 2 test strips and a quantitative Coomassie Blue sodium dodecyl sulphate method. A comparison of the sensitivity of the protein methods with respect to rat albumin and alpha 2U globulin was made; both test strips were found to be relatively insensitive to the presence of alpha 2U globulin. Resultant limitations of test strips in monitoring adult male rat urine protein concentrations are discussed.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
