FUT7 Fucosyltransferase Assays and Chronic Inflammation
Inflammation is a necessary step involved in the immune response, allowing our bodies to fight and eliminate disease, allergies, and injuries. The inflammatory response recruits several mediators to aid in the destruction of whatever pathogen caused the response in the first place. Cells such as leucocytes, eosinophils, and neutrophils get recruited to the site in
PI3K Inhibitors for Cancer Research
PI3K Inhibitors and Cancer – Although cancer is widespread, determining the culprit, as well as individual treatment, is challenging. A variety of cancer types exist with a multitude of contributors. Being the most common human genetic disease, a whole host of genes are involved. Some contribute to curbing cancer (tumor suppressor genes), while oncogenes promote
FP Assays
Fluorescence polarization assays (FP assays) are used in a variety of ways.  From uncovering molecules in solution, to monitoring drug levels in clinical settings, and are enabling in drug discovery. These binding assays have been used to gain knowledge of molecular interactions, enzymatic activity, and nucleic acid hybridization. Moreover, scientists use FP to study small
RIPK1 Inhibitors Inflammatory disease treatment
Genentech discovers novel RIPK1 inhibitors – Like other serine/threonine protein kinases, receptor-interacting serine/threonine-protein kinase 1 (RIPK1) plays a role in several signaling pathways that keep us living healthy, functioning lives. RIPK1 is one of those enzymes’ that wears a variety of hats depending on what function needs attention. It contributes to cell death as well

TR-FRET Assays In Drug Discovery

TR-FRET Assays
Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) technology and TR-FRET assays are used in laboratories globally for a variety of applications ranging from disease detection, to drug discovery, to monitoring genetic differences between individuals and populations. The brilliance of this technology is due to the sensitivity provided by the spectral overlap and the proximity of the acceptor
SLAS 2020 Conference
  BellBrook Labs will exhibit and present posters at the upcoming SLAS 2020 conference in San Diego, CA. At the conference BellBrook will demonstrate applications for its suite of high throughput screening tools, including residence time determination, targeting ENPP1, studying CD73, screening for kinase inhibitors, using Transcreener for a cGAS drug discovery program, and more!
ST6GAL1 Drug Discovery
The number of cancer hallmarks has increased as the knowledge and understanding of the disease progress. As many of us already know, the basic characteristic is a mutation that causes uncontrollable cell growth causing a tumor. Cancer is truly a multi-step development that enables cells to survive, proliferate and metastasize. Other hallmarks of the disease
glycogen synthase diabetes
Although millions of Americans are living with diabetes thanks to medical intervention, it still ranks among the top ten causes of death; Type 2 being the most common.¹ Energy producing glucose is maintained so that we can withstand times of fasting as well as feasting. Think about the person that survives weeks in the wilderness
CDK12 Activity Assays Find Inhibitors Cancer Treatment
All systems within our bodies function by means of proteins. When these proteins aren’t made correctly, our body malfunctions.  The short explanation: DNA is at the fabric of forming a functional protein; genes (made of DNA) get transcribed and then translated to become proteins. During this complex process, genes are not always correctly transcribed and
New Transcreener cGAS Assay
The new Transcreener cGAMP cGAS Assay directly measures the product cGAMP, in a cGAS enzymatic reaction allowing researchers to screen vast compound libraries for novel modulators. The assay will be used to discover and develop new treatments for autoimmune diseases and cancer by targeting the cGAS-STING pathway. Madison, WI – Researchers at BellBrook Labs have
