NextGen Sciences to Develop and Validate Protein Biomarker Assays for Takeda Pharmaceuticals
News Feb 02, 2010
The biomarker assays will be designed to target specific protein isoforms found in liver and muscle in multiple species, for use in preclinical studies, and will also be validated for use in clinical studies. NextGen Sciences’ Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM) protein assay platform is ideal for studies of this kind, which involve multiple isoforms and multiple species.
Dr Michael Pisano, CEO of NextGen Sciences, commented: “We are delighted to have been chosen for this project and look forward to working closely with Takeda’s scientists in Japan.”
Protein "Intentionally" Terminates own Synthesis by Destabilizing Synthesis Machinery — the RibosomeNews
A research group has discovered that a protein, during its synthesis, may destabilize the structure of the ribosome and end its own synthesis prematurely, and found that this phenomenon is used for adapting the cell to its environment.READ MORE
