November 2014: Recent Papers Using Luminex xMAP Technology

11月 24th, 2014 / Luminex Corporation

Another month has passed and it’s time to share the highlights of the numerous publications from our customers. We’ve selected six new papers, featuring customer-developed assays and partner kits, which we thought would be especially interesting to you.

Our bibliography helps you stay current with the success that your scientific peers are having while using xMAP Technology. We’ve included hyperlinks to the PubMed citation or journal sites for your convenience.

We can’t share all of the new publications with you, as we collect over 300 new publications each month. A complete list of over 22,000 publications using Luminex technology can be found at

Cytokine Profiling

Gawriluk TR, Ko C, Hong X, Christenson LK, RuckerIii EB. Beclin-1 deficiency in the murine ovary results in the reduction of progesterone production to promote preterm labor. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America 2014;111(40):E4194-E4203.

Dinel A-L, Joffre C, Trifilieff P, Aubert A, Foury A, Le Ruyet P, Laye S. Inflammation early in life is a vulnerability factor for emotional behavior at adolescence and for lipopolysaccharide-induced spatial memory and neurogenesis alteration at adulthood. Journal of Neuroinflammation 2014;11:U1-U13.

Dinel et al. Journal of Neuroinflammation 2014 11:155   doi:10.1186/s12974-014-0155-x

From Dinel et al: Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) increases cytokines expression in plasma and brain structures of postnatal day 14 (PND14) mice. Plasma concentration (pg/ml) of cytokines was measured by BioPlex 3 h after intraperitoneal (i.p.) administration of saline or LPS (100 μg/kg) in mice (A). Cytokine mRNA expression was measured by real-time rt-PCR in the hypothalamus (B), hippocampus (C), prefrontal cortex (D) and amygdala (E). Data are expressed as mean ± SEM, *P < .05, **P < .01, ***P < .001, for NaCl compared to LPS, n = 20.
