Tag-lite® two-cell assay: a valuable tool for protein drug discovery
Tecan Group Ltd.

Antibodies are central mediators of the immune system, IgG being the most dominant. Binding of IgG/antigen complexes to membrane-bound Fc? receptors triggers a cellular immune response. Alterations in the Fc portion of the antibody by introducing mutations can lead to complete abolition of Fc? receptor binding. This describes the development of a cellbased TR-FRET assay to determine the simultaneous binding of an antibody to its antigen and huFc?RIIIa present on different cells.
Transcreener® ADP2 TR-FRET Red Assay

One of the challenges in life sciences research today is to discover methods for running key assays more quickly, more reliably and using lower volumes of reagents and sample, but still with improved sensitivity. One area where this particularly holds true is for traditional enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs), whose application provides a useful measurement of antigens, including cytokines and a host of other biomarkers.
Protein Purification Workflow Development Using Bio-Rad's NCO' Chromatography System
Bio-Rad Laboratories

High purity protein is a common requirement for biochemical and structural studies. A common approach is to recombinantly express an affinity-tagged version of the protein of interest. This is, however, not always a viable option. This application note discusses protein purification workflow development for untagged proteins and introduce a new indicator of method performance, the purity quotient difference.
Validating the Expression Consistency of a Housekeeping Protein
