A Method for Restoring BMP-Receptor Signaling in a Cell

12.09.2012
<strong>Background</strong><br>

Defects in BMP signaling can cause different diseases, e.g. interruption of the BMP/cGKI (cGMP-dependent protein kinase I) pathway due to a mutation in the BMP receptor II (BRII) protein causes e.g. pulmonary artery hypertension.<br><br> <strong>Technology</strong><br>

We offer assays for the screening of compounds that are involved in the BMP-receptor signaling and are suitable for restoring BMP-Receptor signaling in a cell.<br><br> The assays uses the BMP-receptor for the screening for compounds with a high cGMP dependent protein kinase 1 activity (cGKI) or uses cGKI for screening for receptors that are associated with it. The novel cGKI-based pharmaceuticals can be used to treat a cell, tissue or an organism with a disease or a condition that is associated with impeded or interrupted BMPreceptor<br><br> signaling, insofar as the activity of cGKI is increased in the cell, tissue or organ to be treated.<br><br> Those diseases can be pulmonary artery hypertension, fibrosis, cancer, bone disease, including brachydaktyly and fractures or neurodegenerative diseases.<br><br> <p><strong>Benefits</strong> <ul> <li>Method offers an additive for restoring or enhancing BMP receptor signaling</li> <li>The in vitro/in vivo tested novel compounds are suitable for the treatment of pulmonary artery hypertension, fibrosis, cancer and bone diseases</li> </ul> <p><strong>IP Rights</strong><br> AEP application filed 02/2008<br> PCT application filed 02/2009<br> <br> <strong>Patent Owner</strong><br> Freie Universität Berlin.</p>

Im Focus: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.

Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Nano crystals impact stem cell fate during bone formation

Scientists from the University of Freiburg and the University of Basel identified a master regulator for bone regeneration. Prasad Shastri, Professor of...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
