Discovery On Target 2019
  BellBrook Labs will exhibit and present posters at the upcoming Discovery On Target conference in Boston, MA. At the event BellBrook will demonstrate applications for its suite of high throughput screening tools, including residence time determination, studying CD73 and CD39, screening for kinase inhibitors, using Transcreener for a cGAS drug discovery program, and more!
tyrosine kinase inhibitor lung cancer
According to the American Cancer Society, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death each year and accounts for approximately 13% of all new cases. The most common type being non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Although smoking is the biggest contributor, other factors such as genetics and environmental pollutants contribute to lung cancer of
PDE Activity Assay Heart Disease
Heart Disease: The Role of PDEs and a PDE Activity Assay Heart disease is often misunderstood due to confusion with terminology and the different types of heart disease that exist. While a heart attack can occur quickly, heart failure is a slower progression where the heart weakens over time. One thing is certain; heart disease
High Throughput Screening Assays for Drug Discovery
The world of drug discovery is exciting, yet challenging. High throughput screening assays (HTS Assays) have changed scientific research and biological testing, allowing for greater efficiency and lower costs.  This is just one case where automation has paid off. Just ask the scientists that aren’t doing repetitive pipetting, doctors getting faster testing results, or patients
ABC Transporter ATPase Assay Inhibitor
MsbA Inhibitors Help Fight Against Gram-Negative Bacteria As pathogens continue to wreak havoc on human health, new therapeutics are needed. HTS compatible assays such as the Transcreener ABC Transporter ATPase Assay help pave the way to establish new treatments. Gram-negative bacterial pathogens pose grave dangers in clinical and environmental settings alike. They include foodborne disease
cGAS Inhibitors Grant
The National Institute Of Allergy And Infectious Disease recently awarded BellBrook Labs a $300,000 Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grant to develop novel inhibitors for the cyclic GAMP Synthase (cGAS). The grant will be used to accelerate the discovery of new treatments for autoimmune diseases by targeting the cGAS-STING pathway. Madison, WI – July 2019
Glycosyltransferase Activity Assay and Lysosomal Storage Disorders
Glycosyltransferase (GT) enzymes are incredibly diverse in their abilities to catalyze the transfer of sugar molecules to protein, carbohydrate, and lipid substrates. GTs have various metabolic and regulatory roles in biology. Glycosyltransferase targets provide different areas of therapeutic potential in a wide array of disease, including cancer, metabolic disorders, and infectious disease. A glycosyltransferase activity
Lipid Kinase Assay PI4K Inhibitor
Did you know that diarrhea is the second leading cause of death globally among children under the age of 5?1 Perhaps you have heard of one of the many diarrheal diseases such as cryptosporidiosis caused by a parasite called Cryptosporidium. Many people in the US might associate swimming pools with outbreaks of cryptosporidiosis due to
Biochemical Assay Development
In vitro biochemical assay development can be a long and expensive process, consuming months and thousands of dollars.1 Finding an off-the-shelf solution that’s been proven in drug discovery can help remove some of the painstaking labor required for enzymatic assay development. While there is a wide range of biochemical assays for high throughput screening commercially
Ubiquitin Ligase Assay Tool for Drug Discovery
Can one cellular pathway contribute to many different types of disease? Research has shown that Ubiquitination is one such pathway due to its role in the regulation of protein degradation within homeostasis, cell cycle, and DNA repair. It has been established that at least the following diseases are among those affected from alterations in this
