Application Note: Molecular Beacon Based Helicase Assays Using a Microplate Reader
17 July 2013
Read this application note from BMG LABTECH to learn how to carry out an MBHA. Helicases are motor proteins that bind duplex nucleic acids in order to separate and/or rearrange them. This assay was used to determine the effect of potential inhibitors on the activity of a particular helicase encoded by the hepatitis C virus.
