Synthetic gankyrin binding proteins herald progress in cancer fight

Over production of certain proteins that control cellular responses in the body can lead to unregulated events, including various cancers.  Proteins linked to tumor growth, known as oncoproteins, can be extremely difficult to inhibit by known small molecule drugs, owing to their relatively featureless binding surfaces, which lack well-defined small molecules. A sub-set of these [...]

Is there an Autosampler for the Zetasizer?

There is one, and it is called the NanoSampler. The Zetasizer has been around for a few years, and the Zetasizer series now includes several models (90 degrees, backscattering, size and zeta, flowmode for chromatography detection, automated plate sampler). A very recent accessory which is compatible with any Zetasizer Nano in the field is the autosampler [...]
