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.
Insights into the Function of the Main Class of Drug Targets
About thirty percent of all medical drugs such as beta-blockers or antidepressants interact with certain types of cell surface proteins called G protein coupled receptors.
Visualizing a Cancer Drug Target at Atomic Resolution
Using cryo-electron microscopy, researchers were able to view, in atomic detail, the binding of a potential small molecule drug to a key protein in cancer cells.
Honey’s Potential to Save Lives
The healing powers of honey have been known for thousands of years.
3-D Printed Lifelike Liver Tissue for Drug Screening
A team led by engineers at the University of California, San Diego has 3D-printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver's sophisticated structure and function. The new model could be used for patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling.
Cytoskeleton Crew
Findings confirm sugar's role in helping cancers survive by changing cellular architecture.
Biomarker for Recurring HPV-Linked Oropharyngeal Cancers
A look-back analysis of HPV infection antibodies in patients treated for oropharyngeal (mouth and throat) cancers linked to HPV infection suggests at least one of the antibodies could be useful in identifying those at risk for a recurrence of the cancer, say scientists at the Johns Hopkins University.
Valvena, GSK Sign New R&D Collaboration
Valneva to supply process development services for EB66® -based Influenza vaccines.
Light Signals from Living Cells
Fluorescent protein markers delivered under high pressure.
Cellular 'Relief Valve'
A team led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has solved a long-standing mystery in cell biology by showing essentially how a key “relief-valve” in cells does its job.

Efficient washing of magnetic beads

Tecan Group Ltd.

Cytokines are soluble proteins acting as cell-signalling proteins to modulate the functional activities of immune cells and other tissues. Analyzing cytokines increases our understanding of the immune system and its multifaceted response to most antigens, especially those responses that make up the inflammatory process. 

To identify specific cytokines involved in any inflammatory or immune response, screening panels of cytokines is of high importance. 

Advantages over common ELISA assays include an increased available surface area as well as an even distribution of beads throughout the sample, providing rapid and sensitive detection of low analyte concentrations. EMD Millipore's MILLIPLEX® MAP Human Cytokine/ Chemokine Magnetic Bead Panel enables to focus on the therapeutic potential of cytokines, as well as on the modulation of even low levels of cytokine expression. Based on the Luminex xMAP® technology in a magnetic bead format, this kit allows the quantitative, multiplexed detection of dozens of analytes in parallel, helping to increase productivity. This application note describes the outcome of a successful evaluation study of Tecan’s new HydroSpeed plate washer for efficient washing of magnetic beads using EMD Millipore’s MILLIPLEX® MAP Human Cytokine/Chemokine Magnetic Bead Panel.
