Affinity microfluidics enables high-throughput protein degradation analysis in cell-free extracts

We designed pDOC to support multiple strategies for analyzing protein degradation in vitro, specifically cell-free systems. The device is based on a MITOMI integrated microfluidic chip, originally developed to quantify protein-ligand interactions at equilibrium24,33. The MITOMI module was modified to contain an array of 16 × 64, 32 × 32…

Frontiers | The cGAS-STING Pathway: A Promising Immunotherapy Target

Introduction Invaded by exogenous or endogenous pathogens, the host immune system will be activated accordingly to resist harm and maintain homeostasis, which includes innate immunity and adaptive immunity. As the first line of host immune defense, innate immunity plays a critical role in recognizing extracellular and intracellular pathogens (1, 2)….

SNP of the SREK1 gene is associated with COPD in Kashi

Introduction Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic respiratory disorder that progresses slowly and is characterized by an obstructive ventilatory pattern, which is rarely reversible. The main risk factors are active smoking, genetic factors, and air pollution. In particular, COPD has been a major public health problem and will…

MYO10 drives genomic instability and inflammation in cancer

INTRODUCTION Genomic instability often refers to the existence of a variety of DNA alterations, ranging from single nucleotide changes (such as base substitution, deletion, and insertion) to chromosomal rearrangements (e.g., gain or loss of a segment or the whole chromosome) (1). Loss of genome stability can lead to early onset…
