Hycult Biotech - Proteinase 3 and sCD59 ELISA Kits

Proteinase 3: only for ANCA-associated vasculitis?

The Proteinase 3 enzyme, also known as PRTN3 or PR3, is a serine protease that is mainly expressed by neutrophil granulocytes.

Studies in the eighties and nineties already suggest an interaction between PR3 and emphysema, but also with an enhanced platelet response. A recent study underlines that PR3 is one of the key regulators in Wegener granulomatosis (GPA), which is one of the variants of ANCA-associated vasculitis. Besides inducing other auto-immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and glomerulonephritis, a 2017 study established that the interaction between PR3 and RAGE (a cell surface receptor expressed on malignant cells) mediates homing and metastasis of prostate cancer cells to the bone marrow.

Even though a majority of studies using PR3 are historically related to vasculitis, there is an unprecedented number of autoimmune diseases and interactions within tumor immunology where the role of PR3 still has to be determined.

sCD59: from inflammation to transplantation.

CD59, also known as the MAC-inhibitory protein, is a complement regulatory glycoprotein that inhibits membrane attack complex formation by preventing C9 from polymerizing. The soluble form of CD59 can be detected in a variety of body fluids and is associated with a range of different conditions. A paper from 1995 for example describes the role of CD59 in glomerulonephritis and in that same year there was a paper discussing the therapeutic potential of CD59 in inflammatory diseases.

Historically there have also been scientific articles specifying the role of this protein in relation to myocardial infarction, carcinoma, PNH and macular degeneration. The glycated form of CD59 also shows to be a useful marker for diabetes. Recent insights have further demonstrated that the soluble form of CD59 plays an important role in allograft rejection after transplantation. All these findings combined confirm that CD59 is a versatile regulatory protein that will remain a relevant target for scientific exploration of complement-mediated conditions.

NuGEN - Unique Indexing Solutions for Illumina’s High Capacity Sequencing Platforms

NuGEN’s Unique Dual Indexes are designed to enable researchers to take full advantage of the latest generation of Illumina sequencers.   They detect index hopping, a sequencing phenomenon that can lead to mis-assignment of reads to the incorrect sample. Use of an additional index can enable the detection and eliminate mis-assigned reads from a dataset. This is particularly critical in applications that require high sensitivity, and improves accuracy of sample assignment in any experiment. Index hopping has been shown to occur at a higher frequency in patterned flow cell sequencing platforms, such as the HiSeq 3000, HiSeq 4000, NovaSeq.

The Unique Dual Indexes are conveniently configured in a pre-plated format as 96 unique barcode pairs, so manual preparation of barcode pairs is completely eliminated. Simply add the adaptor to the sample and ligate, and each sample will have index1 and index2 barcodes that are completely unique from all other samples in the plate.

This feature is currently available for the Ovation® Ultralow System V2 for DNA-Seq library preparation, and for the Universal Plus mRNA-Seq and Trio RNA-Seq system for preparation of RNA-Seq libraries. Solutions for the Methyl-Seq product line will also be available soon.

EpiCypher – EpiDyne™ Nucleosome Remodeling Substrate

Defined nucleosome substrates to study disease-relevant ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complexes.

Nucleosome remodeling regulates DNA access on chromatin and thus impacts gene expression and genome repair.

Jena Bioscience - Short LCP Lipids for Membrane Protein Crystallization

Crystallization in the Lipidic Cubic Phase (LCP) has evolved into an important method for crystallization of membrane proteins, with the lipid Monoolein being the first choice to create a stable LCP. In the past few years however, the short lipids (7.7 MAG, 7.8 MAG, 7.9 MAG) have become increasingly popular and the recent progress in applying the highly viscous lipidic cubic phase for serial femtosecond crystallography (LCP-SFX) further accelerates the success of the LCP method by:

  • Delivering the crystal-loaded viscous LCP directly into the XFEL beam (thereby reducing sample consumption in comparison to liquid injectors)
  • Taking advantage of the inherently small crystals grown in LCP
  • Avoiding tricky crystal mounting from LCP
