Our aim for the MRC-PPU is to operate as one of the world’s leading centers for the investigation of signal transduction pathways involving protein phosphorylation and ubiquitylation networks. We are also keen to make our range of essential resources and services available to aide with worldwide research in this area. To this end, we have decided to set up a simple user-friendly, web-based system whereby not-for-profit research groups can request clones, antibodies and proteins our unit possesses.
There is a basic cost recovery fee for each reagent; ￡50 per DNA construct, ￡100 for 100 μg antibody and ￡100 for 100 μg recombinant protein. For cDNA clones only, there is a Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) to be downloaded and signed confirming constructs are only to be used for non-commercial purposes. We are using the “Universal Biological MTA” accepted in over 500 institutes worldwide. The signed MTA can be scanned and returned to us by email. No MTA is required for antibodies and proteins.
Finally, please appreciate this is a brand new website and our aim is to continuously make improvements. If you have any problems locating a reagent, deciding which reagents will be of utility to your research, or have suggestions for the site please use the "Contact Us" link above.
I hope our reagents will be of use to your research.
Director of MRC-PPU
