Translation Regulated (TR)-Mediated Gene Expression: Novel Expression and Reporter Vectors
This is a cell based vector system that is able to monitor the transition, in cell lines, from Cap dependent to Cap independent translation. This shift is critical in determining if a cell, that is placed under significant stress (such as treatment with a chemotherapeutic agent), recovers or undergoes programmed cell death (apoptosis). This infor...

Fluorescence-Based Assay for Demethylation
Detailed Description WSU researchers have developed a fluorescence-based assay for the dealkylation activity of the non-heme iron (II) a-ketoglutarate-dependent dioxygenase family of enzymes. This assay uses formaldehyde dehydrogenase to convert formaldehyde to formic acid and monitors the creation of an NADH analog using fluorescence. The tech...

Biologically active ATP-Analogs for tagging phosphoproteins
A novel Photo Cross Linking Assay (PCLA) for targeting protein phosphorylation Protein phosphorylation catalyzed by kinases and phosphatases act at critical control points that regulates many cellular processes. This central role makes them an attractive target for identifying largely untapped and important biomarkers for disease diagnostics. Under...

An In Vitro Model System for Studying Development of Human Preneoplastic Breast Disease
This technology is a novel model/assay system that recapitulates in vitro the in vivo processes that lead to breast cancer development and progression from preneoplastic tissue. This model is the first that demonstrates in vitro the de novo development and neoplastic conversion of functional alveolar units. Background & Unmet Need: Although ...
