PamGene Enters Co-Marketing Agreement with Invitrogen in Nuclear Hormone Receptor Drug Discovery
News Jan 17, 2008
Under the terms of the agreement, Invitrogen and PamGene will co-market Invitrogen's Nuclear Hormone Receptor proteins and Lanthascreen® assay technology with PamGene's portfolio of microarray-based Nuclear Hormone Receptor screening tools; specifically its PamChip® applications and PamStation® instrumentation.
This creates a complete offering for compound screening in drug discovery in the areas of cancer, diabetes and heart disease. The current market for nuclear receptor targeted drugs is estimated to be 10-15% of the $400 billion global pharmaceutical market.
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
