Applied Biomics Expands to Full-line Proteomics Services
News Mar 23, 2009
Applied Biomics announced expanding its services to full-line Proteomics services. The newly expanded service line covers from sample preparation to generating high quality data ready for publication.
Applied Biomics employs proprietary sample preparation protocols allowing high-quality protein extraction from cell-lines, tissues, serum and other body fluids that originated from micro-organisms to plants, animals and human. The extracted proteins were then separated by 2-Dimensional Differential In-Gel Electrophoresis (2D DIGE), which can simultaneously detect thousands of proteins on their changes in the expression level and post-translational modification. The proteins of interest can then be identified by Mass Spectrometry using MALD TOF/TOF. Also included in the service line is the customized study design and high quality data ready for publication.
Applied Biomics service combines the extensive experience of proteomics experts, proprietary protocols and the state-of-art technology platform. In the post-genome era, the service provides a powerful tool in studying differential protein expression and post-translational modifications, which leads to identifying therapeutic/diagnostic markers in disease models and key regulators in major pathways.
The goal is to provide highly customized, high-quality, fast turn-around, cost-effective and full-line services that address various needs in the Proteomics area.
Synthetic DNA Shuffling Enzyme Outpaces Natural CounterpartNews
A new synthetic enzyme, crafted from DNA rather than protein, flips lipid molecules within the cell membrane, triggering a signal pathway that could be harnessed to induce cell death in cancer cells. Researchers say their lipid-scrambling DNA enzyme is the first in its class to outperform naturally occurring enzymes – and does so by three orders of magnitudeREAD MORE
Eating Activates Calorie-Burning FatNews
The importance of the human brown adipose tissue (BAT) has become clearer during the past ten years. Coldness is one of the most effective activators of the BAT metabolic function but, in rodents, eating has also been shown to activate BAT. The debate on whether eating has the same effect on humans has lasted for decades. Now, the researchers at Turku PET Centre have proven that having a meal increases oxygen consumption in human BAT to the same extent as coldness.READ MORE
Penn Medicine Biochemist Receives Major Award for Research on Epigenetic Protein Modifications via Mass SpecNews
Benjamin A.Garcia, PhD, an expert in quantitative proteomics and Presidential Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, has been awarded the Biemann Medal by the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS). The early-career award recognizes significant achievement in basic or applied mass spectrometry.
