New Products: Kinexus Expands PhosphoNet, Biognosys LiverDig 100 Panel


Kinexus Bioinformatics has released an upgrade of its PhosphoNet database of known and predicted human phosphorylation sites.

The free resource now includes data on more than 177,000 experimentally confirmed human phosphorylation sites and 789,000 computationally predicted phosphorylation sites.

Biognosys has launched the LiverDig 100 assay panel, a multiple reaction monitoring assay that enables quantification of 100 rat liver proteins. The company said the assay panel is useful for various preclinical applications, including mode-of-action studies and screening and validation of drug toxicity biomarkers.

The company offers the panel as a service or as a product for transfer to any contract research organization equipped with triple quadrupole mass spectrometers.
