Webinar | Deciphering cancer: The intersection of epigenetics, metabolism, and tumorigenesis


Posted by Chris S on Apr 5, 2017 3:00:00 AM

Epigenetic modifications to DNA and histone proteins are known to regulate metabolic gene expression, which in turn impacts metabolite levels. Conversely, the machinery responsible for modifying DNA and histones at the epigenetic level is highly sensitive to metabolites arising from cellular metabolism. . .

Webinar | Key signaling pathways in cancer: Emerging trends in immunometabolism


Posted by Carolyn P on Mar 22, 2017 7:00:00 AM

 

Immune cells divide rapidly when mounting an immune response against a pathogen, for example, or when initiating a wound-healing response. To accommodate the increased energy requirements to mount the immune response, these cells may employ metabolic pathways similar to those engaged by cancer cells—pathways such as aerobic glycolysis. This correlation presents the intriguing possibility that understanding immune cell metabolism will provide new and actionable insights into the behavior of tumor cells. In this webinar, our expert speakers will explore how this phenomenon is being studied and describe how it could enable the development of new strategies in the fight against cancer.

BioPlex: a protein interaction network created from thousands of protein immunopurifications

Steven Gygi, Ph.D
Professor in the Department of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School

Protein-protein interactions form a network whose structure drives cellular function and whose organization informs all biological inquiry. Using high-throughput affinity-purification mass spectrometry, we identify interacting partners for 2,594 human proteins in HEK293T cells. The resulting network (BioPlex) contains...

Webinar | Deciphering Cancer: Genomic Instability in Cancer


Posted by Carolyn P on Nov 30, 2016 3:00:00 AM

 

While it is well established that DNA damage can increase the risk of cancer, changes to the epigenome or the chromatin architecture are equally important. DNA damage triggers a redistribution of DNA-binding proteins around the site of damage, resulting in localized and temporary alteration of chromatin structure. However, repeated cycles of DNA damage and repair may lead to permanent changes in the epigenome, thereby promoting the onset of diseases such as cancer. This webinar will examine how we may be able to develop effective new therapeutic options for cancer treatment by targeting proteins responsible for chromatin modifications.

Webinar | Key Signaling Pathways in Cancer: Links to Developmental Biology


Posted by Carolyn P on Jul 27, 2016 3:00:00 AM

It is notable that the same pathways governing the cell growth, death, and differentiation decisions made during embryonic development are also common drivers of adult malignancy. In this webinar, we will explore the idea that a better understanding of developmental biology signaling pathways will advance our understanding of adult tumors and cancer stem cells as well as boost our ability to create effective therapeutics to fight a broad array of cancers.

Roundtable Discussion on Antibody Validation


Posted by Carolyn P on Feb 17, 2016 3:00:00 AM

Antibody Validation Roundtable: Specificity + Sensitivity + Reproducibility = Validation 

Concerns about the use of incorrectly or insufficiently characterized antibodies in biomedical research have been raised by recent reports of nonreproducible research studies. Non-reproducible research studies have resulted in loss of time, resources, and scientific reputation, with publication retractions occurring in certain cases.
