The Bio-Rad Antibodies blog produced 27 posts this year on the latest scientific studies, tips and tricks as well as interesting topics such as autophagy in neurodegeneration and macrophages in cancer.
Researchers at the Sanford-Burnham Institute for Medical Research partnered with scientists at Bio-Rad to engineer high affinity, highly specific inhibitor antibodies to the active site region of a WNV proteinase.
Recently, interest in the role of the 2016 Nobel Prize winning cellular mechanism, autophagy, in neurodegeneration has increased significantly. This blog post highlights autophagy as a therapeutic strategy for neurodegeneration.
In this blog post we highlight some the current potholes on the road to reproducible antibodies as discussed at the most recent antibody validation meetings at the ASILOMAR grounds, CA USA and the University of Bath, UK.
