The laboratory I was previously working have been using it for at least
three years. We have been using it for in-vitro transcription (Ambion kit)
and microinjection into Xenopus oocytes. The lab was successful in cloning
the cNT-1 (concentrative nucleoside transporter) and a few functional
study of amino acid transporters. (Prof. J.D. Young's Lab in Physiology,
