Promising Class of New Cancer Drugs Cause Memory Loss in Mice
New findings from The Rockefeller University suggest that the original version of BET inhibitors causes molecular changes in mouse neurons, and can lead to memory loss in mice that receive it.
Electrical Control of Cancer Cells
Research led by scientists at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) has revealed a new electrical mechanism that can control these switches.
Signature of Microbiomes Linked to Schizophrenia
Studying microbiomes in throat may help identify causes and treatments of brain disorder.
Inflammation Linked to Colon Cancer Metastasis
A new Arizona State University research study led by Biodesign Institute executive director Raymond DuBois has identified for the first time the details of how inflammation triggers colon cancer cells to spread to other organs, or metastasize.
Structural Discoveries Could Aid in Better Drug Design
Scientists have uncovered the structural details of how some proteins interact to turn two different signals into a single integrated output.
Determining the Age of Fingerprints
Watch the imprint of a tire track in soft mud, and it will slowly blur, the ridges of the pattern gradually flowing into the valleys. Researchers have tested the theory that a similar effect could be used to give forensic scientists a way to date fingerprints.
Genetic Overlapping in Multiple Autoimmune Diseases May Suggest Common Therapies
CHOP genomics expert leads analysis of genetic architecture, with eye on repurposing existing drugs.
Surprising Mechanism Behind Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Uncovered
Now, scientists at TSRI have discovered that the important human pathogen Staphylococcus aureus, develops resistance to this drug by “switching on” a previously uncharacterized set of genes.
Tissue Bank Pays Dividends for Brain Cancer Research
Checking what’s in the bank – the Brisbane Breast Bank, that is – has paid dividends for UQ cancer researchers.
Researchers Publish Landmark “Basket Study”
Researchers from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) have announced results from the first published basket study, a new form of clinical trial design that explores responses to drugs based on the specific mutations in patients’ tumors rather than where their cancer originated.

Assay Optimization and Profiling in uHTS Format

Abstract

We demonstrate the use of Promega’s Kinase-Glo® Plus Luminescent Kinase Assay for miniaturized kinase assays using Deerac Fluidics’ Equator™ HTS liquid handling system. The Kinase-Glo® Plus Assay is a homogeneous method of measuring kinase activity by quantifying ATP in solution following a kinase reaction. The Equator™ HTS is a noncontact liquid dispenser capable of delivering volumes from 20µl down to 50nl.

Because assay development and screening are key uses for miniaturized assays, we show the Equator™ HTS can be used to optimize Kinase-Glo® reactions, and screen for kinase activity. We use the Equator™ HTS to titrate kinases and substrates to determine optimal concentrations for subsequent screening activities in 1536-well format. A panel of kinases and compounds are counter-screened for kinase selectivity profiling. 24-point serial titration is performed to determine potency. Data show that miniaturization of the Kinase- Glo® Plus Assay does not compromise assay quality. The combination of Kinase-Glo® Plus and the Equator ™ HTS provides an integrated solution for kinase drug discovery.
