The human protein atlas blog
Version 14 of The Human Protein Atlas includes a new type of validation of antibodies that are used for determining the subcellular localization of a protein.
A set of antibodies have been analyzed in transgenic cell lines expressing GFP-tagged target protein at near-endogenous levels to confirm that the antibodies are capable of binding the target protein. The approved antibodies are then used to determine the subcellular localization of endogenous protein in a selection of cell lines. A high validation score is assigned to those genes where the same location(s) are observed for both tagged protein and protein detected using labelled antibody in non-transfected cells...Read more
Great news for Life Science researchers in Sweden and the new Wallenberg Center for Protein Research (WCPR).
AstraZeneca and the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation support a new center for protein research, the Wallenberg Center for Protein Research (WCPR). Three of Swedens top Universities, KTH - Royal Institute of Technology, Uppsala University, and Chalmers Technical Univeristy, will work together to improve human health by developing new biological molecules, antibodies and peptides...Read more
Solid-phase cloning for high-throughput assembly of single and multiple DNA parts
Simple and automated workflows for DNA assembly are necessary in large-scale projects such as the Human Protein Atlas. For this reason, we have developed two automated methods for swift and convenient high-throughput assembly of DNA into expression vector constructs.
By using paramagnetic beads as a support for the DNA, we can perform construct assembly on a liquid handler robot and furthermore eliminate the need for prior purification of PCR products by spin or gel purification...Read more
A prognosis based classification of undifferentiated uterine sarcomas: Identification of mitotic index, hormone receptors and YWHAE-FAM22 translocation status as predictors of survival
Undifferentiated uterine sarcomas (UUS) are rare tumors with a heterologous biology and a poor prognosis.
In a recent study by scientists from the Human Protein Atlas project and colleagues, the relevance of clinicopathology, mitotic index, translocation status (YWHAE-FAM22), and a number of biomarker candidates were examined for correlation with the prognosis of these tumors. The protein biomarkers P53, P16, Ki-67, Cyclin-D1, ER, PR, and ANLN were evaluated by immunohistochemistry...Read more
