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
Fighting Ovarian Cancer ST3GAL1 Inhibitors
Important functions such as cell–cell recognition, protein targeting, and cell adhesion taking place in the human body get carried out through a process known as sialylation. Sialylation is a common reaction that is catalyzed by a sialyltransferase (ST) enzyme with the goal of adding a sialic acid (monosaccharide) to a growing oligosaccharide forming a glycolipid
Scientist Working on TBK1 Inhibitors for Cancer Research
TBK1 Inhibitors, Autoimmune Disorders, and Cancer – Inflammation is a crucial step within the immune response, helping our bodies eliminate disease. However, it can also be a burden where misregulation creates a variety of maladies including cancer. As inflammation persists, becoming chronic, the beneficial elements can be lost and disease occurs. It’s not just autoimmune
ENPP1 Inhibitors Improve Innate Immunity
The human immune response is incredible. Unlike the adaptive immune response, the innate response acts quickly and is considered the first line of defense against pathogens and foreign DNA such as tumor cells. To be effective, the innate immune response relies on several cell types and a multitude of proteins such as interferons (INFs). This
