scioDiscover - Drug Target Discovery

 

You identified a compound with the desired effect ?

 

You are looking for its target(s) ?

Which additional pathways are affected ?

Which proteins are altered in a diseased tissue ?

Get the whole picture of protein expression in multiple pathways !

 

 

 

Profound knowledge about protein expression levels is of utmost importance for the discovery and evaluation of new drug targets. Our Scio-Discover Service is fully immuno-based and covers proteins involved in major disease and signalling pathways as well as secreted proteins. For the highly-parallel protein analysis only minimal amounts of sample are required. No sample fractionation or depletion is needed. Our platform is able to process most biological samples without the need for laborious sample preparation, saving time and resources.

 

Applications:

  • Drug Target Identification and verification studies
  • Mechanistic studies for various indications
  • Correlate Next-Gen-Sequencing Data to protein expression levels
  • Profile cytokine and inflammatory status of your samples

 

Key advantages:

  • Low sample consumption 
  • Investigation of human, murine and rat samples*
  • Fast turnaround time, as low as two weeks**
  • No need for laborious depletion or fractionation of your samples
  • High sensitivity (as sensitive as an ELISA or better)
  • High reproducibility (CV < 10%)
  • Various sample types can be investigated
    • Serum / Plasma
    • Tissue
    • Cell culture
    • Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)

 

Service Features:

  • Study Layout
  • Protein Extraction and Purification
  • Protein Quantification
  • Protein labelling with high-performance fluorescent dyes
  • Automated array incubation and handling 
  • Array scanning and data acquisition
  • Data analysis according to your requirements
  • Individual study report

* Antibody array is designed to target human proteins. Due to a high sequence homology of vast majority of proteins it was often successfully applied to study murine, rat and ovine models as well  [Thorenz A. et al. (2018), Peiro J. et al. (2018), Reichman H. et al. (2019), Raquel F. et al. (2020)].

New article | Selective elimination of immunosuppressive T cells in patients with multiple myeloma

| Feb 2021 | Scientists at Heidelberg University Hospital used our scioCD  platform to profile CD8+SLAMF7+ cell cultures:

"High throughput screening of 351 different cytokines and immune proteins in the supernatants of the T cells cultures revealed strong upregulation of IL-6, IL-8, both vital survival factors for myeloma cells, and CXCL5, a chemokine that could enhance the frequency of CD4 Treg, in the cultures containing CD8+SLAMF7+ cells. IL-2 and IL-5 were upregulated in the control cultures without CD8+SLAMF7+ T cells, highlighting a more activated state in the control group and suggestion IL-6 and IL-8 as potential effector cytokines for the suppressive CD8+SLAMF7+ T cells."

New article | Analysis of the Differential Gene and Protein Expression Profiles of Corneal Epithelial Cells Stimulated with Alternating Current Electric Fields

| Feb 2021 | Scientists at Rostock University Medical Center used our scioCD  platform to Corneal Epithelial Cells stimulated with Alternating Current Electric Fields:

"Analysis of the protein array data revealed that the treatment of cells with AC EFs altered the expression of various protein products ... revealed activation of various diverse cellular signaling pathways in which TNF, MAPK, IL17, and PI3K-Akt signaling pathways were significantly impacted ..."

New article | BET-Inhibitor I-BET762 and PARP-Inhibitor Talazoparib Synergy in Small Cell Lung Cancer Cells

| Dec 2020 | Scientists at University of Sassari used our scioPhospho  platform to to analyse the synergy of BET and PARP inhibition in Small Cell Lung Cancer Cells:

"Among the I-BET762-associated and combination-associated differentially expressed proteins, 150 were common to both treatment conditions. ... Ranking I-BET762-associated and combination-associated DEPs by their differential expression revealed CHEK2 and PTEN to be among the top-downregulated proteins, whose deficiencies have been associated with HR defects and increased PARPi sensitivity.

Testimonials

"The quality of the data we have obtained is exceptional."

 

Prof. Claudio Mauro
Birmingham University, Institute of Inflammation and Ageing, Birmingham, UK

"We have performed an acetylation array on primary T lymphocytes with Sciomics. The quality of the data we have obtained is exceptional. They have a model of collaboration with the team conducting the experiment. This means they generate the data and assist with further analyses of the data. The screening has opened up several exciting ways forward for us."
