SOD1 aggregation assay

SOD1 aggregation assay

About 10% of ALS cases are inherited; and a large subset of them are caused by mutations in the gene encoding the copper-zinc superoxide dismutase (SOD1). The detection of SOD1-positive inclusions in familial ALS patients suggests the role of SOD1 aggregation underlying the pathology of familial ALS. Although SOD1 mutant proteins are different in structure,…

synuclein aggregation

α-Synuclein aggregation assay

α-Synuclein is a presynaptic neuronal protein that is linked genetically and neuropathologically to Parkinson’s disease (PD). Aggregated a-synuclein is the major component of inclusions in Parkinson’s disease; but also in other synucleinopathy brains indicating that α-synuclein aggregation is associated with the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders. In this assay from Innoprot, we use a SH-SY5Y cell…

Cardiac Fibrosis Assay

Cardiac Fibrosis Assay

Cardiac Fibrosis Assay from Innoprot enables monitoring TGF-β/Smad signaling activation on Human Cardiac Fibroblasts. Immortalized primary Human Cardiac Fibroblasts stimulated with TGF-β1 demonstrate a clear concentration-dependent increase in Smad Binding Elements (SBE) expression; while increasing the TGF-β1 stimuli showes no effect of on the number of nuclei, indicative of no cytotoxic events. TGF-β trigger is…

DNA Damage Assay

DNA Damage Assay

Several processes or insults can induce damage on DNA; such as a cell death pathway activation or by the genotoxic activity of a compound; substances that makes them harmful to the genetic information contained in organisms. Genotoxins are the substances that have the property of genotoxicity. All new chemical entities in the drug discovery process…
