Various potential therapeutic opportunities to treat spinocerebellar ataxia type 7 (SCA7) have been discovered in a new study into the neurodegenerative disorder.
Researchers have developed a luciferase assay that can be used to monitor the effects of treatments on six different molecular targets at once.
Unlike synthetic compound libraries, natural product hits must be identified and characterised, as the molecule is often unknown. Venom peptides are often inherently stable due to cysteine knots whereas other peptides may not be. Steve and Carol Trim discuss the challenges of the hit-to-lead journey with these non-standard hits.
The hit-to-lead journey can be a long endeavour, with many failures along the way. Nikki Withers spoke with DNDi ’s Discovery Director Dr Charles Mowbray to hear how the organisation is working to identify new leads with activity in animal models of neglected tropical diseases and the potential for further…
This issue includes a discussion on the future of high-throughput screening through collaboration, an analysis of mass spectrometry as a structural biology tool and an exploration of the challenges of hit-to-lead when researching tropical diseases. Also in the issue are articles on immuno-oncology and assays.
The new screening technique may enable development of novel combination-immunotherapy regimens against cancers and persistent infections.
A novel peptide has been discovered that attacks gram negative bacteria at a previously unknown site of action which presents a promising lead substance for the development of a new antibiotic.
The CyBio FeliX pipetting system was used to perform all liquid handling steps of the library preparation workflow for personal genome analysis.
Improve the reproducibility of the real-time results in 384 well format with the application of a qPCR using a pipetting robot & standardized sample setup.
Researchers have created a new high-throughput screening system which could identify new drugs by focusing on nucleotide metabolism.
Investigation of thermal protein stability in high throughput using the application of thermal shift assay using SYPRO ® Orange in 96 well format.
Detection of four pathogens of mastitis diseases using qTOWER³ in combination with extraction and detection systems for DNA diagnostics.
