|Novel Gpr39 Agonists: Correlation Of Binding Affinity Using Label-Free Back-Scattering Interferometry With Potency In Functional Assays|
Daniel Brown (1), Niklas Larsson (2), Ola Fjellström (3), Anders Johansson (3), Sara Lundqvist (2), Johan Brengdahl (2), and Richard J. Isaacs (1)
We describe the application of back-scattering interferometry (BSI) to the characterization of small molecule ligand binding to human GPR39 (a GPCR targeted for type-2 diabetes therapy) overexpressed in crude membrane fractions in free solution, including how BSI-derived affinity and functional assay-derived potency correlate for compounds of varying scaffolds

Wei J1., Gibbons G1., Lopez Alcantara S2., Dale T2., González Rueda A3., Paulsen O3. & Cox C1.
We characterised iPS cell-derived human neural progenitor cells (hNPCs) and their progeny produced using optimised methods to examine their suitability for neurobiology research.
|MAB Discovery Technology: A Smart Way to Highly Diverse and Functional Therapeutic Antibodies|
MAB Discovery GmbH developped a highly integrated process which provides diverse antibodies by starting with a high number of B cells and filtering the relevant antibodies by an early-on functional screening.

Increased plasma concentration of soluble CD14-subtype (presepsin) was observed in pediatric patients with bacteremia. Presepsin could be a possible biomarker of sepsis in pediatric patients, however, their reference interval in children could be lower than that of adults. More studies with larger number of samples are required to confirm the result.
|Exploring the Therapeutic Potential of a Peptide Derived from a Poxviral Immune Evasion Protein|
•9R-VIPER is an effective at TLR4 and TLR2 signal inhibition than VIPER.
•The structure of 9R-VIPER and the mutant peptide L6AE10A were investigated by NMR.
•Important structural information was uncovered and an explanation was found for the loss
of activity when important residues are changed.

|Characterization of the prehaustorial resistance against leaf rust (Puccinia triticina f. sp. tritici) in Einkorn (Triticum monococcum) by massive analysis of cDNA ends (MACE)|
Albrecht Serfling1,2, Sven Templer1,3, Dragan Perovic1, Frank Ordon1
Triticum monococcum, a valuable source for horizontal resistance against P. triticina was analyzed microscopically and by transcriptional profiling. MACE showed the increased expression of chitinases, kinases, peroxidases and pathogenesis related genes in the first 8 hai. The high number of differentially expressd tags and the knowledge about SNPs facilitates in silico mapping and the development of polymorphic markers which may accelerate the transfer of this prehaustorial resistance
