Comprehensive Introduction of BLI and SPR

Understanding molecular interactions—especially dynamics—can answer so many questions, it’s no surprise that analysis of molecular interactions is required in many areas of research.                      For example, in order to understand how signaling occurs in an organism, you may need to know how molecules and receptors interact. Or, during drug discovery, you may want to know […]

Antibiotics as future herbicides?

Scientists at the University of Adelaide have engineered a failing tuberculosis antibiotic into a powerful herbicide capable of tackling two invasive weeds endemic in Australia without harming people or bacterial cells. The approach, which involves making structural modifications to molecules to stop weeds from growing, could revolutionize the development of herbicides and offer farmers and […]

OX40 Protein Has the Potential to Reduce Major Complications of Leukemia Therapy

Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine and its collaborating institutions have engineered immune cells to control two major life-threatening complications, graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) and cancer relapse, which usually appear after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for leukemia (allo-HSCT). The results of animal model studies published in the journal Blood support further studies to determine the […]
