SomaLogic CEO steps down; Q4 revenue declines 18%
March 31, 2023 -- Aptamer-based proteomics firm SomaLogic said after the close of the market on Tuesday that its fourth-quarter revenue declined 18% year over year, primarily due to the recognition of $1.9 million of licensing revenue in the fourth quarter of 2021. Read More
New method detects 'buddy' proteins within cells
December 7, 2022 -- Researchers from University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering have developed a method to find proteins located in close proximity to each other inside a cell. The technology uses high-throughput genomic sequencing to measure proteins, protein complexes, and mRNA within individual cells. Read More
Mitochondria seen as common thread in autism spectrum disorder
November 28, 2022 -- Researchers in Canada have discovered previously unknown connections between genetic factors in autism spectrum disorder, specifically with the mitochondria. Read More
Researchers discover way to increase synthetic mRNA's protein production
November 23, 2022 -- A team of researchers from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology has discovered a way to increase synthetic mRNA's protein production efficiency by up to 10 times. They contend that their findings can improve the effectiveness of mRNA vaccines and drugs with even less dosage of the mRNAs. Read More
Scientists use new chemoproteomic method for global profiling of arginine dimethylation
October 20, 2022 -- A study published October 18 in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences has revealed how arginine dimethylation regulates protein liquid-liquid phase separation and membraneless organelles by using a new chemoproteomic method. Read More
