Molecular Staging

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 »

  • images47The research group on Oxidative Stress and Cell Cycle, which is co-leader Jose Ayte within the Department of Experimental Sciences and Health, Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, is an enthusiastic lab whose main interest is the characterization of cellular responses to stress oxidative and cell cycle control as a model organism using the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. The team uses cutting-edge methodological approaches in molecular biology, proteomics and imaging live cells, in addition to classical genetics. Read the rest of this entry »
