Quantitative fluorescence in situ hybridization is the most sensitive method currently available for telomere length measurement. In contrast to the classical telomere length measurement based on Southern blot analysis, Q-FISH 1) identifies telomere length in each individual chromosome; 2) identifies the shortest telomere in the cell; and 3) does not take account of degenerate telomeric sequences present in subtelomeric regions of chromosomes which do not form a functional part of telomeres. The only disadvantage of Q-FISH is that it cannot reliably identify subpopulations of cells with differing telomere lengths and for that purpose it should ideally be combined with flow-FISH.

Getting Started With Dumbbells

The use of dumbbells gives you a much more comprehensive strengthening effect because the workout engages your stabilizer muscles, in addition to the muscle you may be pin-pointing. Without all of the belts and artificial stabilizers of a machine, you also engage your core muscles, which are your body's natural stabilizers.
