CNS Research

OF

CNS research seeks to advance treatment for central nervous system disorders through the discovery and quantitation of biomarkers, mechanisms, and drug targets. Our broad range of CNS products meets all the needs of in vitro, in situ, and in vivo central nervous system research.

We offer biomarker detection kits with AlphaLISA® and LANCE® TR-FRET technology, cellular and in vivo imaging systems, and tissue pathology solutions to assess mechanisms of CNS disease in biochemical, cellular, tissue, and animal models. We also provide target-specific radiochemicals, radioligands, and receptor-transfected cell lines and cell membranes.

Applications for our CNS products include:

  • Measuring biomarkers of CNS disease in cells, brain tissue homogenates, cerebrospinal fluid, and other sample types with our fast, pre-validated kits
  • Studying targeted binding using our radiolabeled ligands and steroids
  • Quantitating biomarkers in tissue samples with our industry-leading immunohistochemistry products
  • CNS research in animal models from molecular, functional, and anatomical perspectives with our in vivo imaging systems
  • Performing phenotypic analysis with our high content screening solutions

Our CNS products are also well suited for CNS research in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Huntington’s. Gain precise insight on disease biomarkers like phospho-tau, Ab42/Ab40, vimentin, and frataxin, as well as relevant receptors such as dopamine DA1R/DA2R.

    Imaging Bile Canaliculi in 3D Liver Microtissues using the Opera Phenix HCS System

    Analyzing transport of biliary metabolites is essential to predict pharmacokinetics and hepatotoxicity during drug development. A functional impairment of hepatobilary transporters, such as bile salt export pump (BSEP) and multidrug resistance-associated protein 2 (MRP-2), is strongly associated with an increased risk of cholestatic liver injury. Here, we describe a 3D high-content screening assay to study hepatobiliary transporter function in InSphero human liver microtissues. Confocal imaging and automated image analysis were used to quantify BSEP and MRP-2-mediated efflux of fluorescent substrates into bile canaliculi.

    Measuring FRET using the Opera Phenix High-Content Screening System

    Fundamental processes in living cells, such as apoptosis and signal transduction are controlled by proteins, often acting in concert with other protein partners through protein-protein interactions (PPIs). Inappropriate protein-protein recognition can fundamentally contribute to many diseases, including cancer. Therefore, inhibiting protein-protein interactions represents an emerging area in drug design.
