comment Providing small molecules to cells on a filter plate
@WYSIWYG, Batch should be fine. The question is what would be the setup to do so. Would it be as simple as reversing a 96 well lid over and placing the filter plate on top? What about the wetting?

@Shigeta, alas it wasn't my column. I guess it's time to buy some new resin.

I'm going to try the high salt. That's a good suggestion. The reverse flow probably won't work since I've repacked the column a few times by now

comment What is the translation termination efficiency in mammalian cells?
From what I understand the eRFs are not perfect but they still work better than RF1 and RF2 which allow for a non trivial amount of readthrough.

comment What are the biological mechanisms behind the increase in cancer risk and alcohol consumption?
Asian Glow is linked with cancer. Actually tackling alchol related cancer is a fairly hot topic these days.

I agree damaged is caused by acetaldehyde (also the cause of asian glow) but I believe that your selected enzyme is incorrect.

comment How do you store membrane proteins?
@Suvidu, I would counter that if the purification protocol is a pain, it's a valuable investment to be able to scaleup effectively.
