16:40 Phys.orgGenome engineering with CRISPR/HDR to diversify the functions of hybridoma-produced antibodies

Bioengineers and life scientists incorporate hybridoma technology to produce large numbers of identical antibodies, and develop new antibody therapeutics and diagnostics. Recent preclinical and clinical studies on the technology highlight the importance of antibody isotypes for therapeutic efficacy. In a new study, a research team in Netherlands have developed a versatile Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindrome Repeats (CRISPR) and homology directed repair (HDR) platform to rapidly engineer immunoglobin domains and form recombinant hybridomas that secrete designer antibodies of a preferred format, species or isotype. In the study, Johan M. S. van der Schoot and colleagues at the interdisciplinary departments of immunology, proteomics, immunohematology, translational immunology and medical oncology, used the platform to form recombinant hybridomas, chimeras and mutants.

15:40 WhatReallyHappened.comTHIS BIOTECH COMPANY CLAIMS TO HAVE 3D PRINTED A MINI HUMAN HEART

SOURCE: FUTURISM.COM There’s a national shortage of donor organs in the United States — a terrifying predicament for the hundreds of thousands of patients on transplant waiting lists. But a new technology has the chance to one day make the donor organ obsolete.
Chicago-based biotech outfit Biolife4D claims to have 3D bioprinted a miniaturized human heart — chambers, ventricles, and all. Though it’s still years out, the long-term goal is to print full-scale human hearts that can be transplanted into human patients, like changing out a watch battery.
The company used a proprietary bioink — the company described it as “similar in properties to gelatin” — that was designed from the ground up to replicate actual human biomaterials. The heart was printed the same way a consumer-grade 3D printer prints small objects: layer by layer. To help with structural integrity during the printing

Researchers from Oxford University have worked out the molecular structure of a protein that is vital for survival of the flu virus. Recently published in Nature, they used several different techniques to look at the arrangement of atoms within a protein that the human flu virus uses to make new copies of its genetic information. Without this multifunctional protein, known as a polymerase, the flu virus cannot survive. A key finding of the study is that the polymerase can exist in two forms, a monomer and a dimer. It is only when the polymerase dimerises that specific functions are switched on. The research team saw the dimeric form of the polymerase was formed by a specific region of protein and when the region was disrupted, the polymerase couldn't work. This finding presents a brand-new way of potentially inhibiting the flu virus which means we could develop new drugs and flu treatments in

During embryogenesis, dozens of types of neurons with distinct functions come together to form the circuits that drive our thoughts and actions. They are generated by progenitor cells, which produce them one after the other in a very precise order. Researchers now provide proof that progenitor cells are transplanted into a young mouse embryo, they recover their past skills and rejuvenate.

Scientists have investigated the activity of stem cells in the brain of mice and discovered a key mechanism that controls cell proliferation. According to the researchers, the gene regulator Id4 controls whether stem cells remain in a state of rest or enter cell division. The results may be relevant for treating neurodegenerative disease in human brains.
