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.

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.
