Vitro and PhosphoSolutions Collaborate to Study Stem Cell Proteomics

NEW YORK, Jan. 12 (GenomeWeb News) - Vitro Diagnostics and PhosphoSolutions will collaborate on stem cell research, Vitro Diagnostics said today.

 

The collaboration aims to investigate intracellular signaling mechanisms involved with regulation of stem cell growth and differentiation.

 

Early investigations by Vitro and PhosphoSolutions provided evidence suggesting interaction between key regulatory pathways through phosphorylation.

 

Vitro has developed methodologies to induce differentiation of functional human beta cells from adult pancreatic stem cell lines. PhosphoSolutions makes antibodies which can discriminate a target protein based on its phosphorylation state.
