Description

Title:Aurora Borealis
Author(s):Srivastava, Indrajit
Subject(s):Bioengineering
Abstract:This is a thin-layer chromatography (TLC) plate, illuminated by an ultraviolet (UV) lamp emitting light at 365 nm, and displays bands which are reminiscent of aurora borealis, a phenomenon caused when solar winds disturb the magnetosphere. TLC is very commonly used technique in synthetic chemistry to identify compounds, determining their purity and follow the progress of the reaction. In this picture, I am analyzing a reaction mixture containing a pyrene-pyrazole based dye under UV light to see different bands, ultimately from which the dye will be purified and separated from the mixture. Without the UV light, different colored bands will not be available. The long-term goal of these dyes is to study how they influence with microtubules polymerization (MT), which are major component of the cell cytoskeleton, and play essential roles in maintaining cell shape, rigidity, motility, cell signaling and cell division in eukaryotes.
