Grant to Fund Million Peaks Project The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded a prestigious Advanced Grant to Prof. Peter Schoenmakers, Prof. Albert Polman and Prof. Huib Bakker, all three of whom work at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). Altered Metabolism of Four Compounds Drives Glioblastoma Growth Findings suggest new ways to treat the malignancy, slow its progression and reveal its extent more precisely.Why Bearcats Smell Like Buttered Popcorn Researchers pinpoint chemical compound that gives rare animal its popcorn-like scent.Human Gut Microbiome Evolution Westerners have a less-diverse gut microbiome compared to hunter-gatherers, but how and why these microbe collections diverged has largely remained a mystery. Potential Diagnostic for Dengue Fever Scientists from Colorado State University have explored the use of small molecules in patient serum for diagnosis of dengue fever and potentially predicting progression to the severe disease.Non-Destructive Sensing of Fish Freshness Is there any reliable way to know whether frozen fish is fresh or not?‘Smelling’ Prostate Cancer A research team from the University of Liverpool and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has reached an important milestone towards creating a urine diagnostic test for prostate cancer that could mean that invasive diagnostic procedures that men currently undergo eventually become a thing of the past.Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.Portable Kit Can Recover Traces of Chemical Evidence A chemist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed a portable version of his method for recovering trace chemicals such as environmental pollutants and forensic evidence including secret graves and arson fire debris.Diagnosis of Two Rare Childhood Diseases Improved For the first time, researchers have developed tests that could improve the diagnosis of two rare childhood diseases known as congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDGs) and metachromatic leukodystrophy, and that could even lead to new treatments for CDGs.
Rapid and Sensitive Identification of Host Cell Proteins with SWATH® LC-MS Acquisition Learn how Stemcentrx has employed SWATH Acquisition and the TripleTOF® 6600 LC-MS system to dramatically increase the speed of acquisition of HCP data, with exceptional sensitivity.
How to optimize sample preparation step prior to extraction In this free to attend On Demand webcast presented by Stephane Karoubi, Product Manager, and Sophie Dubacq, Application Engineer, from Bertin Technologies.
A New Proteomics Workflow for the Identification of PTMs (Post Translational Modifications) Quantitative proteomics is an essential tool in molecular biology and biomedical sciences. SILAC is a commonly used workflow in which proteins are labelled with stable isotopes, digested into peptides and separated by chromatography for detection in a mass spectrometer.
Mass spectrometry based metabolomics in chemical and nanomaterial risk assessment In this webinar, Mark Viant, Professor of Metabolomics at the University of Birmingham, will introduce the concepts of metabolomics as well as the challenges faced in chemical hazard assessment.
