QPatch & Qube users have been busy in Q3, publishing 19 more publications

Here are some select highlights:

  • Ghovanloo et al., PLoS ONE – in a collaboration between Simon Fraser University & Xenon Pharmaceuticals, used the Qube to define the effects of cannabidiol on gramicidin currents, & implications for their antibiotic activities.
  • McMahon et al., Toxins; Wang et al., Membranes – the University of Queensland have two papers. McMahon et al. provide biophysical and pharmacological comparisons of marine snail conotoxins, SxIIIC, SmIIIA & KIIIA, blockers of Nav channels. Wang et al. investigated indole-3-carbinol, a natural product found in Brassica vegetables, their block of T-type calcium channels (Cav3.1-3.3) & roles in cancer anti-proliferation.
  • Watt et al., JPTM – a thorough examination of cardiac ion channel safety pharmacology in hERG, Cav1.2, and Nav1.5 (peak/late), Dr Steve Jenkinson’s team at Pfizer compared GLP manual patch clamp data, Qube APC & hERG binding data, relating data to compound pro-arrhythmia/Torsades de pointes risk modelling.
  • Wade et al., Bioconjugate Chem. – more snakebite antivenom antibody (nanobody) discovery & development in the 4th publication arising from a fruitful collaboration between Prof. Andreas Laustsen’s lab at DTU & Sophion application scientist Dr Kim Boddum.
