  6. Functional-selection of affinity reagents against DNA-protein complexes using targeted chromatin sequences

    SBC: AXIOMX INC            Topic: NIDDK

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Site-specific binding of proteins to DNA plays an important role in cell development, cell signaling, the cell cycle, and diseases such as cancer. There are two overarching goals to this proposal: (1) to develop a meansfor the identification of proteins bound to specific DNA sequences, and (2) to develop a better method for the identification of immunoprecipita ...

  8. A Millimeter-wave Tunable Cavity for Ultra-sensitive Solids and Liquids DNP-NMR at Low Budget

    SBC: DOTY SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: NIA

    ? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): NMR is probably the most powerful and widely used analytical technique for structure determination and function elucidation of molecules of all types, but it suffers from low sensitivity, particularly for insoluble biological macromolecules. Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) with Magic Angle Spinning (MAS) has recently demonstrated S/N gains exceeding t ...

  9. Testing Smad7-based biologics for treating chronic wounds

    SBC: TAIGA BIOTECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Chronic skin wounds associated with various diseases (e.g., diabetes) and aberrant healing from acute wounding (e.g., hypertrophic scarring) is a major health care burden, which need scientific discovery-based therapeutic interventions. Our previous studies show that Smad7, a TGFb signaling antagonist, accelerates skin wound healing. We have developed a Smad7 f ...
