Protein-Protein interactions (PPIs) are central to most essential cellular mechanisms including gene expression, protein translocation, cell cycle progression and signal transduction. Bellón-Echeverría et al. published in Scientific Reports a proof of concept employing MultiBacMam to identify new small-molecule inhibitors of the CDK5-p25 protein-protein interaction. The method is generally applicable to any multiprotein cascade important in drug discovery.
Stolt-Bergner et al. published in Journal of Structural Biology a benchmarking initiative in 13 independent labs to compare the world’s leading baculovirus expression systems. Geneva Biotech’s EMBacY virus was ranked #1 in performance.
Tchesnokov et al. published in Scientific Reports a production system for Ebola Virus RNA-Dependent RNA Polymerase Complex using the MultiBac system, providing a powerful discovery system for this key drug target.
