Cell-based assays for protein-protein interactions

22 October 2013 | By Mark Wade, Center for Genomic Science of [email protected]

Protein-protein interactions (PPI) form the backbone of all cellular signalling networks, and aberrant PPI contribute to the pathology of several diseases. Thus, strategies to identify PPI modulators are expected to be therapeutically beneficial. However, there are very few examples of clinically approved PPI modulators, reflecting the difficulties of identifying effective…

GPCRs: Cell based label-free assays in GPCR drug discovery

20 August 2013 | By Niklas Larsson, Linda Sundström, Erik Ryberg and Lovisa Frostne (AstraZeneca)

G protein-coupled receptors are one of the major classes of therapeutic targets for a broad range of diseases. The most commonly used assays in GPCR drug discovery measure production of second messengers such as cAMP or IP3 that are the result of activation of individual signalling pathways. Such specific assays…

Practical Workshop – Biochemical Assays for Screening

21 February 2013 | By Sheraz Gul, Head of Biology at European ScreeningPort, Hamburg, Germany

Recent years have witnessed an expansion in the disciplines encompassing drug discovery outside the pharmaceutical industry. This is most notable with a significant number of universities worldwide that now host infrastructure such as compound libraries and automated screening centres[1-3]. An archetypal small molecule drug discovery project will aim to identify…
