News Aug 28, 2012
Metabolon, Inc., has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Stemina Biomarker Discovery, Inc. in the US District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin.
The lawsuit seeks a ruling that Stemina’s services directly infringe on US Patent 7,550,258 and US Patent 7,910,301 which relate to global analysis of complex biological samples for the discovery of biomarkers and pathways associated with drug action, toxicity and disease.
Retrained Enzyme is Biocatalysis MilestoneNews
TU Graz researchers managed for the first time ever to ‘retrain’ an enzyme to build ring-shaped molecular structures instead of performing its natural task of reducing double bonds. The work was published in Angewandte Chemie, and is relevant for the production of pharmaceuticals and plant protection products.
Laser Pulses and Fluorescence Enable Metabolite ViewingNews
In the search for new sources of drugs, biodegradables and biofuels scientists have come to realize that life itself could be the solution, using natural metabolites produced by bacteria to produce vital compounds like penicillin. Identifying which cells are most useful for this goal has proved a huge challenge, but a new system using fluorescence and lasers has enabled metabolite viewing in real time in algae cells.READ MORE
