Bispecific antibodies | Scientist Live

Bispecific antibodies: rising stars in antibody therapeutics Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) are important therapeutic agents for the treatment of many human diseases, such as cancer, autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular diseases, asthma, and viral infections. Unlike monospecific mAbs, bispecific antibodies (bsAbs) are antibodies containing two antigen-binding sites and therefore can simultaneously target two…

Researchers identify cellular serpins as host factors that restrict SARS-CoV-2 infection

The mass vaccination programs against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) received massive media attention and were widely credited for reducing the threat of the disease. However, many countries struggle to obtain enough doses to immunize their population, and some immunocompromised individuals are less protected by the vaccines. There is still a…

The Ribosomal Protein RpL22 Interacts In Vitro with 5′-UTR Sequences Found in Some Drosophila melanogaster Transposons

Mobility of eukaryotic transposable elements (TEs) are finely regulated to avoid an excessive mutational load caused by their movement. The transposition of retrotransposons is usually regulated through the interaction of host- and TE-encoded proteins, with non-coding regions (LTR and 5′-UTR) of the transposon. Examples of new potent cis-acting sequences, identified…

Sod1 integrates oxygen availability to redox regulate NADPH production and the thiol redoxome

Significance Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase (Sod1) is a key antioxidant enzyme, and its importance is underscored by the fact that its ablation in cell and animal models results in oxidative stress; metabolic defects; and reductions in cell proliferation, viability, and lifespan. Curiously, Sod1 detoxifies superoxide radicals (O2•−) in a manner that…
