Molecular Staging is addressing this demand with a portfolio of products and services based on technologies that are transforming the detection and measurement of both proteins and nucleic acids.

  • 4Catalan researchers of the Institute for Biomedical Research of Bellvitge in Barcelona and the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research in Glasgow, published in Cell the discovery of Tigar, the first gene involved in the antioxidant cellular mechanism associated with the prevention of tumor formation. This paper shows that low concentrations of p53 protein are sufficient to activate the gene Tigar. Read the rest of this entry »

  • images60Obesity is now one of the largest epidemics of the century and continues to grow exponentially. The group of Ramon Gomis, Hospital Clinic of Barcelona, has been reported recently that sodium tungstate can be useful therapy in the treatment of obesity. This reduces, showing no side effects, adiposity and weight gain in mouse models. The analysis showed that the process was mediated by the effect of tungstate in controlling the expression of 70% of altered proteins in cases of obesity. Read the rest of this entry »
