Assessment of the Anti-angiogenic Effect of VEGFR2 siRNA in Clonetics™ HUVEC using the Lonza 4D-Nucleofector™ System
Srinivasan Kokatam1 , Kanchan Tiwari1 , Jenny Schroeder2 , Andrea Toell2 , Lubna Hussain3, Preeti Kapoor1

In the current study we have used siRNA targeting VEGFR2 as an example to study knockdown of VEGFR2 and subsequent inhibition of tube formation by HUVECs on Growth Factor Reduced Matrigel™ in a 96-well plate format. The same strategy can be used for screening and validating siRNA based inhibitors of the angiogenic process in vitro and thus could be of utility in anti-cancer screening strategies.

Targeting Acute Pancreatitis by Small Molecule Inhibitors of Cyclophilin D
M. Awais, E. Shore, R. Gibson, N. Kershaw, D. Latawiec, S. Pandalaneni, M.A. Javed, L. Wen, D.N. Criddle, N. Berry, L-Y. Lian, P. O’Neill, R. Sutton

Cyclophilin D (CypD) promotes opening of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore, a major contributor to acute pancreatitis. We are developing small molecule inhibitors of CypD as a possible treatment for AP and other conditions where the MPTP plays a role.

The Pathogen Box: A Catalyst for Neglected Disease Drug Discovery
Benoît Laleu*, Thomas Spangenberg, Wesley Van Voorhis, Angelique Doy, Dylan Pillai, Andreas Verras, Joie Garfunkle, Jeremy Burrows, Timothy Wells, Paul Willis

Modelled after the Malaria Box, the Pathogen Box contains ~400 diverse drug-like molecules active against neglected diseases of interest such as Chagas disease, cryptosporidiosis, hookworm, sleeping sickness, leishmaniasis, lymphatic filariasis, malaria, onchocerciasis, schistosomiasis, trichuriasis, tuberculosis.

Analysis of Terpenes Using Gas Chromatography with Vacuum Ultraviolet
Changling Qiu, Jonathan Smuts, Phillip Walsh, and Kevin A. Schug

The VUV absorption spectra for different terpenes were distinctive and differentiable. GC-VUV demonstrated the capabilities for qualitative and quantitative analysis of terpenes in turpertine mixtures. Chromatographic coeluting signals can be deconvolved by the VUV data analysis software.

Mobility of Aeroallergens in Home: Effect of Location of Air Sampling and Implication for Evaluation of Patient Exposure
Julian Gordon1, Paul Detjen, Andrea Wachter & Prasanthi Gandhi1

The Inspirotec sampler permitted the easy testing of multiple locations within a household. Air sampling simultaneously at 12 locations by other technologies would have been technically challenging. These were run by an untrained operator.

Selective Debenzylation of N-Benzyloxypyrazinones in Flow
Anh Hung MAI - Cedrick VERYSER - Wim DE BORGGRAEVE

Selective and reproducible debenzylation of benzyloxypyrazinones by using catalytic transfer hydrogenation in flow chemistry to yield N-hydroxypyrazinones. The flow methodology enabled us to avoid overreduction of the compounds to pyrazin-2(1H)-ones.

A New Dual Luciferase Assay Using NanoLuc® Enables a Second Generation Coincidence Reporter System to Reduce False Hits in HTS Poster
Christopher Eggers, Samuel Hasson, Brock Binkowski, Matt Robers, James Unch, Braeden Butler, , Keith Wood, James Inglese and Frank Fan

Luciferase-based reporter-gene assays remain a cornerstone of high-throughput screening of compounds because of their high sensitivity and dynamic range. However, a substantial number of non-relevant hits can be generated due to direct interaction of compounds with the luciferase reporter.

CellTiter-Glo® 2.0: A Novel Luminescent Cell Viability Assay with Greatly Enhanced Storage Stability
Michael P. Valley, James Unch, Poncho L. Meisenheimer, James J. Cali, and Dan F. Lazar

Here we report on the attributes of a novel ATP detection reagent for cell viability with all of the assay performance of the previous CellTiter-Glo® Reagent, but now with markedly enhanced stability as a single component in a liquid format. These new features provide for much greater ease-of-use in that storage of the reagent at 4°C eliminates the requirement for reagent thawing and minimizes temperature equilibration time.

Design and Validation of Bioluminescent Assays for 3D Cell Culture Models Poster
Terry L. Riss, Michael P. Valley, Chad A. Zimprich, Andrew L. Niles, Kevin R. Kupcho and Dan F. Lazar

Cells cultured in 3D model systems often acquire relatively large in vivo-like structures compared to the thickness of a 2D monolayer of cells grown on standard plastic plates.

iPSC-Derived Cardiomyocytes and Luciferase Reporters: A Robust Reporting Platform for Monitoring Cardioprotection and Pathway Biology in Endogenous Human Tissue Cells
Fiene, S., Thompson, A., Niles, A., Robers, M., Anson, B.

Pathophysiological conditions, medical interventions, and off-target toxicities can all result in cellular oxidative stress. In cardiac myocytes, prolonged and/or excessive oxidative stress can lead to cardiotoxicity: a primary cause of developmental delays, black-box warnings, and post-launch withdrawal of pharmaceuticals.
