Animal studies provide new insights into mechanisms behind Crohn’s disease
August 22, 2022 -- Researchers, led by Massachusetts General Hospital, have found that inhibitors of an enzyme called Speckled Protein 140 can reverse intestinal abnormalities in mice with inflammation characteristic of Crohn's disease. Read More
Innovative approach keeps cells alive during RNA extraction
August 17, 2022 -- Scientists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) and ETH Zurich have jointly developed an innovative single-cell transcriptome profiling approach, called Live-seq, that keeps cells alive during RNA extraction for further study while also being minimally invasive.

Now metastasis can be observed with an assay
August 15, 2022 -- University College Dublin researchers have provided a new mechanism for observing cell migration with a high-throughput spheroid-based migration assay. The assay uses a tissue-mimicking, fibrillar collagen type I extracellular matrix. Read More
Scientists can visualize proteins secreted by a single cell
August 8, 2022 -- Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis have developed a new method for visualizing and measuring proteins secreted by a single cell in about 30 minutes. Read More
Spanish researchers identify protein driving melanoma malignancy
August 3, 2022 -- Several proteins are involved in the progression of melanoma, and one in particular, PDIA6, drives malignancy, researchers at the Centre for Genomic Regulation in Barcelona found. Read More
New technique visualizes cells less than 10 nm
August 3, 2022 -- A new photoswitching fingerprint analysis enables the optical imaging of dynamic interactions with other molecules in the cell. The analysis reliably allows for structural optical resolution in cells in the sub-10 nm range. Read More
Seer debuts new proteomic-mapping software
August 3, 2022 -- Seer has launched a new Proteogenomics Workflow that integrates deep proteomics with genomics and is powered by the Proteograph Analysis Suite 2.0. Read More
Thymus uses RNA molecules to generate list of friendly proteins that T cells should not attack
August 2, 2022 -- Research from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory has identified the RNA molecules used by the human thymus organ to generate a list of friendly proteins that T cells should not attack, a discovery which may lead to improved immunotherapies and treatments for autoimmune disorders and cancer. Read More
Researchers discover what drives T cells to protect the gut
August 1, 2022 -- New research finds the barrier cells that line the intestines send messages to the patrolling T cells that reside there by expressing the HVEM protein. That signaling prompts T cells to survive longer and move more to stop potential infections. Read More
Seegene outlines expansion strategies at AACC 2022
July 29, 2022 -- Seegene provided a glimpse of its global expansion initiatives at the 2022 American Association of Clinical Chemistry (AACC) Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo in Chicago, held July 26-28. Read More
