Simvastatin Inhibitor

http://www.bocsci.com

Simvastatin is a competitive inhibitor of HMG-CoA reductase with Ki of 0.1-0.2 nM .
TargetsHMG-CoA Reductase (HMGCR)
Reference Reading
1. Input of selected human pharmaceutical metabolites into the Norwegian aquatic environment
Although we did not detect any ATV metabolites in surface water, interestingly we did detect the presence of the main and active metabolite of the statin prodrug simvastatin (SV); simvastatin hydroxy carboxylic acid (SVA) in four of the surface water and sediments collected from Oslofjord.The surface water samples collected contained SVA at concentrations > LODand up to 66 ng L-1, whilst two sediment samples contained low ng g-1 (dw) concentrations of SVA also. No effluent concentrations of SVA were determined; however, we have previously reported the occurrence of SV at low ng L-1 in VEAS WwTW effluent suggesting from these preliminary data that effluent concentrations of SVA would indeed be higher.

1. Assembling and de-assembling micelles: competitive interactions of cyclodextrins and drugs with Pluronics
In this work, we solubilised the local anaesthetic lidocaine or benzocaine into F127 micelles at varying concentrations. A simple phase diagram of F127 in the presence of lidocaine shows regions of existence of either a sol or a gel state (Fig. 7).

Vorinostat Inhibitor

http://www.bocsci.com

Vorinostat (suberoylanilide hydroxamic acid, SAHA) is an HDAC inhibitor with IC50 of ~10 nM.
Reference Reading
1. Clinical pharmacology profile of vorinostat, a histone deacetylase inhibitor
Marian Iwamoto • Evan J. Friedman •Punam Sandhu • Nancy G. B. Agrawal. Cancer Chemother Pharmacol (2013) 72:493–508
Vorinostat is an HDAC inhibitor currently marketed in the United States and other countries for the treatment of cutaneous manifestations in patients with cutaneous T cell lymphoma (CTCL) who have progressive disease, persistent, or recurrent disease following two systemic therapies. Vorinostat inhibits the enzymatic activity of Class I (HDAC1, HDAC2, HDAC3) and Class II (HDAC6) HDACs at nanomolar concentrations (IC50<86 nM). A clinical study of vorinostat in patients with stage Ib and higher CTCL, who had failed to two systemic therapies (one containing bexarotene), demonstrated a 30 % overall objective response. An additional study in refractory CTCL patients demonstrated a similar response rate of 31 %.

antibody affinity

http://www.creative-biolabs.com

Affinity maturation is the process to improve antibody affinity for an antigen. In vivo, natural affinity maturation by the immune system takes place by somatic hypermutation and clonal selection. In vitro, in the laboratory affinity maturation, can be obtained by mutation and selection.

humanized monoclonal antibodies

http://www.creative-biolabs.com

Humanization is important for reducing the immunogenicity of monoclonal antibodies derived from xenogeneic sources (commonly rodent) and for improving their activation of the human immune system. Since the development of the hybridoma technology, a large number of rodent monoclonal antibodies with specificity for antigens of therapeutic interest have been generated and characterized.

rabbit antibody

http://www.creative-biolabs.com

The rabbit antibody repertoire is an exceptional source for both polyclonal antibodies and monoclonal antibodies that combine high specificity with high avidity and affinity. In addition, rabbits, which belong to the order Lagomorpha (lagomorphs), are evolutionarily distant from mice and rats, which belong to the order Rodentia (rodents).

human monoclonal antibodies

http://www.creative-biolabs.com

Creative Biolabs offers an innovative custom service to produce native human monoclonal antibodies through our unique Native™ Antibody Discovery Platform.For technical reasons, current in vitro antibody display methods cannot provide human antibodies with naturally paired heavy chain and light chain. This could potentially lead to the generation of antibody molecules that have suboptimal solubility or other biophysical characteristics.
