|Toward a Comprehensive Bottom-up and Top-down Analysis of the NIST Reference Monoclonal Antibody|
Chris Becker1, Eric Carlson1, Wilfred Tang1, Yong Kil1, Marshall Bern1, John Schiel2, Lisa Kilpatrick2, Trina Formolo2
Development of ADC and other therapeutic proteins require careful characterization of sequence, post-translational modifications, sequence variants, and degradants. In this study, a NIST mAb interim reference material was analyzed by new bioinformatics tools (Byonic™, Byologic®, and Byomap™) allowing one to efficiently identify and quantify modifications down to trace levels.
|Application of Central Composite Design (CCD) for the Optimization of Ultrasound-assisted Extraction (UAE) of Phenolics from Corn (Zea mays)|
Widiastuti Setyaningsih, 1,2 Erwan Duros, 3 Ceferino Carrera, 4 Miguel Palma, 2 Carmelo G. Barroso 2
A new Ultrasound-assisted Extraction (UAE) of phenolic compounds from corn (Zea mays) has been optimized by means of chemometrics tool. The proposed method was validated and successfully applied to the analysis of phenolics content in several corn cultivars.
|Metabolism of Eight Model Pharmaceutical Compounds in Rat and Human HepatoPac Versus Liver Microsomes and Suspension Hepatocyte Platforms|
Julius O. Enoru, William DeMaio, Adiba Watanyar, Kenneth Draper, Amanda Moore & Okey Ukairo
This poster presents our comparative metabolite profiling analysis of eight model pharmaceutical compounds with various biotransformation reactions using a functionally stable model of primary hepatocytes [micropatterned co-cultures (MPCCs)] in parallel with the traditional liver microsomal and suspension hepatocyte systems.
|Recent Technical Developments in the Standardized Separation and Measurement of Extracellular Vesicles|
Amy Phillips (1), Robert Vogel(2), and Murray F. Broom(1)
We present robust and practical solutions for the standardization of EV isolation and concentration measurement. EV concentration also needs to have a defined size range. With these solutions, significant improvement in the reproducibility and comparability of results between different researchers is possible.
|High Titre BacMam viruses improve transduction efficiency of mammalian cells|
Robert Possee, Elisabetta Locanto, Adam Chambers, Linda King
We present a method for producing high titre BacMam virus vectors for the efficient transduction of mammalian cells.
|Novel Approaches to High-throughput Measurements of Replicative Lifespan in Yeast by Microfluidic Size Sorting and Genetic Engineering|
Ilka Lewrenz, Stephanie Wälter, Jacqueline Franke
Development of a high-throughput screen utilizing a microfluidic device and a linearly growing yeast strain to simultaneously test the influence of various drugs on the replicative lifespan of yeast.
|Automated Fluorescence Detection and Imaging of RNA Species in Live Cells|
Paul Held, Victor Koong, Don Weldon, Peter Banks
This poster describes the detection and quantification of RNA species in Live cells through automated imaging.
|Identification and Characterisation of Novel Positive Allosteric Modulators of the Galanin 2 Receptor|
An HTS against GalR2 was carried out to find novel PAMs to treat neuropathic pain.
|The Longest Way Round is the Shortest Way Home: HTS Assay Development for Complex Multi-domain Protein Kinases|
Doris Hafenbrandl, Vanessa Nardese, Maria Cristina Sidoli, Valeria Wanke, Mariantonietta Rubino and Daniele Carettoni
This study strongly supports the possibility to overcome the major bottlenecks in the production of long kinase recombinant forms, in order to perform drug discovery programmes with proteins more closely preserving the structural and functional properties of the native enzymes.
