peptide arrays

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Tecan and JPT Peptide Technologies today announced a deal to co-promote JPT's catalog peptide arrays and profiling capabilities.

Although Roche plans to discontinue a number of its NimbleGen microarray product lines at the beginning of next year, it is currently developing high-density peptide microarrays, and has made them available to scientists from Sweden's SciLifeLab, BioArray News has learn

Researchers from Intel and Stanford University are collaborating on silicon-based peptide arrays that could prove useful as a platform for applications including clinical research and point-of-care diagnostics.

Arrayjet recently installed a customized version of its Ultra Marathon microarrayer instrument at JPT Technologies.

In particular, the study focused on signaling networks tied to CTL chromatin regulation with the aim of better understanding the systems of gene regulation characteristic of these cells, said one of the researchers.

The arrays, which are based on data generated using the company's kinase substrate prediction algorithm, are intended for research into identifying optimal kinase substrates and for proteome-wide kinase screening assays.

Tony Wyss-Coray and his colleagues used a peptide microarray platform to identify the antibodies, which are found at higher levels in younger people than older ones, suggesting they may protect against Alzheimer's. If the findings pan out, it could provide the basis for a vaccine against the disease.
