Apoptosis - Mar 2020

Apoptosis Research Antibodies

The study of apoptotic mechanism plays an important role in development and aging, tumorigenesis, neurogenesis and immune system development. NSJ Bioreagents provides researchers with a source of classic, widely used/cited monoclonal antibodies, including antibodies specific to targets involved in the various apoptotic pathways.

Epitope Tags, a smart choice for purification/pull down assay application

MBLI offers a large selection of purification kits including common epitope tags (DDDDK, HA, Myc, His, V5, etc.) and antibodies to fusion proteins (GFP, RFP, etc.) with special tags (mini-AID-tag and others). Antibodies are an essential tool to determine the localization and expression of target proteins, and for purification in the presence of numerous other proteins in living organisms. However, specific antibodies to a target protein are not always available. In that case, the target protein can be added as a marker (tag) by genetic engineering techniques and expressed in the living organism. A specific antibody to the tag can distinguish the target protein from other similar proteins.

BioVision's Human CellExp™ Recombinant Proteins

Proteins, especially therapeutic proteins, were initially extracted from human and animal tissues or blood. Recent advances in genomics, proteomics and structural biology raised the general need for significant amounts of pure recombinant protein. Due to limited availability of biological material, potential pathogen contaminations and improper protein folding in bacteria, several methods have been established to obtain large amounts of pure recombinant proteins by transgene expression in mammalian cells. BioVision is pleased to offer wide range of Human cell expressed recombinant proteins, which provide tremendous benefits for scientists performing human cell based studies. In a nutshell, the virtues of these proteins are:

BioVision’s PD-L1 Binding Peptide, WL12

WL12 is a peptide that selectively binds to Programmed Cell Death Ligand 1 (PD-L1). PD-L1 is an immune checkpoint protein over-expressed in several cancers. PD-L1 overexpression causes tumor cells to go unrecognized by T-cells for killing. Many inhibitors that target PD-L1 and its receptor PD-1 such as Nivolumab and Pembrolizumab are in clinical use for several types of cancers. However, all patients do not respond to these inhibitors. The levels of PD-L1 are used to predict the response to these inhibitors. WL12 is used to detect PD-L1 by Positron Emission Tomography imaging. BioVision is excited to launch PD-L1 binding Peptide, WL12 for research in cancer immunotherapy targeting PD-1 and PD-L1 to improve patient response and survival.

Cell Culture - Feb 2020

Afamin/Wnt3a Culture Medium

MBL International is now offering Afamin/Wnt3a* culture medium for intestinal organoid cell culture. Wnt3a is an essential component for maintaining Lgr5-positive stem cells in intestinal epithelial cells. However, Wnt3a has been found to aggregate in serum-free medium and therefore loses the ability to have appropriate physiological activity. Studies have found that Wnt3a activity can be maintained by forming a complex with Afamin. MBL International’s new Afamin/Wnt3a culture medium is serum free and allows for long term organoid cultures to be possible. Learn more about this new product today.

Mouse-specific anti-PD-1 Blocking Antibody

PD-1 (mouse), mAb (blocking) (1H10)
PD-1 (mouse), mAb (blocking) (1H10) (PF)
CD279 (PD-1) is a type I transmembrane protein belonging to the CD28/CTLA-4 family of immunoreceptors that mediate signals for regulating immune responses. Members of the CD28/CTLA-4 family have been shown to either promote T cell activation (CD28 & ICOS) or downregulate T cell activation (CTLA-4 & PD-1).
Figure: PD-1 receptor-induced CD4 T cell activation and proliferation by PD-1 (mouse), mAb (blocking) (1H10) (Prod. No. AG-20B-0075).

VEGF Family Proteins

Vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGFs) are a family of secreted polypeptides with a highly conserved receptor-binding cystine-knot structure similar to that of the platelet-derived growth factors. VEGF induces endothelial cell proliferation, promotes cell migration, and inhibits apoptosis.

eTOPIX LAG-3 Ligand FGL1 and other Immuno-Oncology Reagents

The LAG-3 Immune Checkpoint

FGL1 - New Major LAG-3 Ligand 

Fibrinogen-like Protein 1 (FGL1), a molecule secreted by the liver and pancreas, is a major ligand of              LAG-3.
FGL1 binding to LAG-3 inhibits T cell response.
FGL1 is upregulated in human cancers. High plasma FGL1 levels are associated with poor clinical                  outcome in patients treated with anti-PD1 therapy.
