Invitrogen and Chroma Therapeutics Extend Kinase Screening Partnership
News Feb 27, 2008
Invitrogen Corporation has announced an extension to its partnership with Chroma Therapeutics Ltd. As a part of this partnership, Invitrogen will use its SelectScreen™ platform to perform biochemical screening on Chroma’s multi-targeted kinase inhibitors at Invitrogen’s Paisley, Scotland, UK, facility. Financial details of the collaboration were not disclosed.
Invitrogen’s SelectScreen™ profiling and screening service integrates enzyme collections and cell-lines with state-of-the-art bioassay technologies to accelerate drug discovery programs.
The SelectScreen™ collection of assays has been assembled to address therapeutically relevant targets, phylogenetic diversity and key signaling pathways, all of which are of interest to companies developing kinase inhibiting compounds. Invitrogen offers compound profiling services through laboratories located in Madison, Wisconsin, USA, and Paisley, Scotland.
“Our partnership with Chroma Therapeutics demonstrates the value they find in our kinase biology expertise, as well as the high quality data they receive with a very rapid turnaround,” commented Nick Ecos, vice president and general manager of Invitrogen’s Discovery Sciences business. “Time is essential to our collaborators and our locations in the US and UK are ideally located for a rapid turnaround.”
New Chemical Synthesis Process: Synergy of Two Catalysts in One FlaskNews
Researchers report the one-step synthesis of a ketone from an aldehyde by the combination of thiazolium N-heterocyclic carbene and palladium/bisphosphine catalysts in one flask. The two catalysts function in a synergistic manner. This study is expected to lead to new synthesis processes of precursor compounds for medications.READ MORE
