The pharmaceutical industry is faced with significant challenges in its efforts to discover new drugs that address unmet medical needs. Safety concerns and lack of efficacy are the two main technical reasons for attrition. Improved early research tools including predictive in silico, in vitro, and in vivo models, as well as a deeper understanding of the disease biology, therefore have the potential to improve success rates.

Unbiased: Chemical proteomics was used to profile compound interactions in an unbiased fashion. We present here the application of different compound-immobilization routes for decoding nonprotein kinase off-targets of the multitarget kinase inhibitor C1, which interacts with distinct compound moieties. Since the approval of the first selective tyrosine kinase inhibitor, imatinib, various drugs have been developed to target protein kinases.

Tetrasulfocyanine (TSC) has been described as a fluorescent probe for tumour imaging. The complex of TSC and the Fab antibody fragment MOR03268 has been crystallized in three different crystal forms. MOR03268 was identified from the HuCAL GOLD library and further optimized to bind TSC with high affinity (Kd = 0.

F-Box proteins (FBPs) are variable adaptor proteins that earmark protein substrates for ubiquination and destruction by the proteasome. Through their N-terminal F-box motif, they couple specific protein substrates to a catalytic machinery known as SCF (Skp-1/Cul1/F-Box) E3-ubiquitin ligase. Typical FBPs bind the specific substrates in a phosphorylation dependent manner via their C-termini using either leucine rich repeats (LRR) or tryptophan-aspartic acid (WD40) domains for substrate recognition.

Serum concentrations of soluble L-selectin by far exceed those of other soluble adhesion molecules, and serum soluble L-selectin concentrations are remarkably stable upon prolonged storage. We present evidence for Ca(2+)-dependent binding interactions between human serum amyloid P (SAP), a proteolysis-resistant pentraxin glycoprotein, and L-selectin, as shown by surface plasmon resonance measurements, protein band shift assays in a native PAGE system, and after SDS-PAGE and membrane transfer. Monoclonal antibodies to L-selectin strongly reduced binding of biotinylated SAP to L-selectin-IgG chimeras immobilized on microtiter plates.

The role of the ubiquitin/proteasome system in degrading nuclear hormone receptors and regulating their transcriptional function has emerged in the last few years. We identified the ubiquitin-specific protease USP10 as part of DNA-bound androgen receptor (AR) complexes purified from nuclear extracts of PC-3 cells stably expressing the AR. The interaction between USP10 and the AR was confirmed by GST pull-down assays.

The leukocyte adhesion molecule L-selectin has an important role in the initial steps of leukocyte extravasation during inflammation and lymphocyte homing. Its cytoplasmic domain is involved in signal transduction after L-selectin cross-linking and in the regulation of receptor binding activity in response to intracellular signals. However, the signaling events occurring at the level of the receptor are largely unknown.

In search of novel mechanisms leading to the development of antiestrogen-resistance in human breast tumors, we analyzed differences in the gene and protein expression pattern of the human breast carcinoma cell line T47D and its derivative T47D-r, which is resistant toward the pure antiestrogen ZM 182780 (Faslodex trade mark, fulvestrant). Affymetrix DNA chip hybridizations on the commercially available HuGeneFL and Hu95A arrays were carried out in parallel to the proteomics analysis where the total cellular protein content of T47D or T47D-r was separated on two-dimensional gels. Thirty-eight proteins were found to be reproducibly up- or down-regulated more than 2-fold in T47D-r versus T47D in the proteomics analysis.
