Direct Targets Identification of a Bioactive Compound
Sylvain Blanc, Paul Bradley, Marie-Edith Gourdel, Michael Cholay, Gisèle Guimèse, Mike Mckenzie, George Nasi, Jean-Christophe and Barbara Ruggiero

Identifying protein partners of a small bioactive molecule is of great
interest in many aspects of life sciences and specifically in the drug
discovery and development process cycle. It is a support to (i) decipher
the mechanism of action after for example a “High Content” screening,
(ii) study “off-target” effects, (iii) adjust therapeutic indications and
clinical regimens of a drug and (iv) consider drug repositioning.

Idebenone Inhibits Cell Proliferation by Blocking of ANO1/ TMEM16A Chloride Channel in Adenocarcinoma Cells
Yohan Seo

Idebenone significantly reduced cell proliferation and induced apoptosis in PC-3, CFPAC-1, HT-29, T-84 and Calu-3 cells having CaCCs activities. These data suggest that idebenone, an ANO1/CaCC inhibitor, has potential for use in cancer therapy.

Pressure-Based Volume Measurement Technology for In-process Measurement of Microplate Contents
John Thomas Bradshaw, Bill Gigante, Christoph Schwedes

Modern drug discovery and research labs are utilizing complex automation systems to assist in
high throughput screening of novel drug candidates. A large portion of these laboratories are
using ANSI-SBS-standard 96- and 384-well plates to achieve the necessary throughput. The volume
of sample transferred into and out of these plates can be critical to the success of assays or
validation of procedures.

Stable Chloroplast: Myth or Reality?
Shailesh Joshi and Dyfed Evans

Chloroplasts principally encode the photosynthetic machinery in Viridiplantae. It has long been accepted that in photosynthetic plants chloroplast genomic structure is uniquely stable as it is maternally and clonally inherited. The first chloroplast genomes sequenced supported this view. The current study was undertaken to address the potential issue of global chloroplast(in)stability.
