Immune Checkpoints and Cancer

Cancer immunotherapy seeks to use the many components of the immune system to attack cancer cells.

The First Therapeutic Use of Penicillin

On February 12, 1941 penicillin was first used in the treatment of a patient. This was the first time that an effective drug for the treatment of bacterial infections became available.

Citrullination and Autoimmunity

Scientists who are studying autoimmunity or rheumatoid arthritis know something that many others might not: citrullination of proteins is hugely important.

Classic Fluorescent Labeling Dyes

Fluorescence is the result of a three-stage process that occurs in certain molecules (generally polyaromatic hydrocarbons or heterocycles) called fluorophores or fluorescent dyes.

Invention of the Hybridoma Technology

On August 7, 1975, César Milstein and Georges Köhler published their seminal paper on the production of monoclonal antibodies in continuous cell culture.

The 10 Best DNA Dyes and Probes

With over 50 different probes on the market, it can be a bit overwhelming to determine the optimal DNA dye for a given experiment. To simplify the process, here is what we consider the 10 best DNA dyes.

Immune Checkpoints

The amplitude and quality of the immune response of T cells is controlled by an equilibrium between costimulatory and inhibitory signals, called immune checkpoints.
