In order to profile compounds against a broad panel of kinases, in-house profiling requires rigorous kinase assay development. Most importantly, it requires an optimization for each kinase in the panel, which can be costly and time consuming. On the other hand, outsourcing kinase profiling is fraught with obstacles such as requirements of agreements, long timelines and lack of control over the whole process. Thus, a profiling system with simple and rapid in-house implementation would obviate such logistical inconveniences and concerns.
We created new kinase profiling systems based on the luminescent ADP-Glo™ kinase assay platform. The kinase profiling systems have the following features and advantages:
• Set of kinases organized by kinase families, presented in easy to use multi-well strips, and standardized for optimal kinase activity.
• The strip system provides flexible kinase inhibitor profiling, as each strip can be used to profile compounds at a single dose or used for a dose response against 8 kinases at once.
• Easily automated with fast and simple reaction assembly.
The data generated with this novel set-up are concordant with published inhibitor potency profiles produced by radioactivity assays. Using this technology we created profiles for 16 small molecule compounds that are approved for different cancers and inflammatory diseases. Medicinal chemists and chemical biologists can easily adopt this novel approach for regular in-house kinase inhibitor profiling and gain more control over the data for fast progression into developing lead compounds.
A New Method for Analyzing MSe/All Ions Fragmentation in Xenobiotic Metabolism StudiesPoster
During early drug discovery, the study of metabolism plays an essential role in determining which drug candidates move forward into development and later stages. As an alternative to traditional Data Dependent Acquisition (DDA), the use of MSE/All Ions Fragmentation (AIF) has become common in metabolite identification workflows for the analysis of metabolic hot spots. Here we present a solution for analysis of MSE/AlF in metID studies.READ MORE
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy accelerates motor axon regeneration despite a phenotypically mismatched environmentPoster
A femoral nerve defect model was adapted for the evaluation of proregenerative effects of extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT). Functional evaluation, histology and qRT-PCR data show differences between sensory and motor-derived nerve transplants and a pro-regenerative effect of ESWT. These data provide evidence for the clinical application of ESWT after autologous nerve transplantation as a novel non-invasive method.READ MORE
