A new original research article in SLAS Discovery presents a fast, sensitive, and robust methodology for screening small molecule inhibitors against CD73/Ecto-5'-Nucleotidase, a promising target for developing anti-cancer drugs.
The methodology described by authors Gejing Deng (Sanofi) et al., uses multiple stable isotope-labeled substrates for carrying out CD73 reactions followed by sample pooling then simultaneously quantifying multiple reaction products using ultra-fast RapidFire-MS/MS.
In contrast to other optical based methodologies, this methodology allows identifying molecules with diverse inhibition modalities and characterizing inhibitors using both recombinant CD73 and CD73+ cells.

Antitumor Immune Function in Liver Controlled by Gut MicrobiomeNews
Scientists have found a connection between bacteria in the gut and antitumor immune responses in the liver. The study showed that bacteria found in the gut of mice affect the liver’s antitumor immune function. The findings have implications for understanding the mechanisms that lead to liver cancer and for therapeutic approaches to treat them.READ MORE
Immune Cells Form Clots in Tumors Aiding Lung Cancer's SpreadNews
Researchers have found that by helping to form clots within tumors, immune cells that flock to a particular type of lung cancer are actually building a foundation for the tumor to spread within the body.READ MORE
