LGR4 Specific Monoclonal Antibodies and Their Use
­Researchers at UTHealth have isolated and characterized monoclonal antibodies as well as antibody fragments that specifically binding to LGR4, a 7TM receptor that is highly expressed in major types of solid tumors, including but not limited to colorectal cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, and ovarian cancer. These LGR4 specific monoclonal antibodies...

Novel Channelrhodopsins for Optogenetics Gene Therapy
When expressed in targeted neurons, light-sensitive channelrhodopsin proteins (ChRs) have the ability to selectively manipulate neuronal activity in a light-dependent manner. Gene therapy using anion ChRs (ACRs) has the potential for treating excessive neuron firing in conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, neuropathic pain and epilepsy, while...

Improved Antibody-Drug Conjugate Linker Compositions and Methods of Use
Faculty members at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston have developed a novel chemical linker for constructing antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs). While traditional ADC linkers can only load a single payload molecule, the developed linker has the ability to load two identical or different drug payloads. Doubling the number of payloads...

Compositions and Methods for Long-Term in Vitro Culture Of The Syphilis Spirochete.
Background Syphilis is a multistage sexually transmitted infection of world-wide importance, with an estimated 5.6 million new cases per year. Treponema pallidum, the causative agent of syphilis, was first identified by Schaudinn and Hoffman in 1905, but in the past researchers have been unable to maintain T. pallidum viability or multiplication beyond...

Di-functional Hyaluronic Acid for Tissue Engineering
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a polysaccharide that is expressed in the extracellular matrix (ECM) of all vertebrate tissues, contributing to the development of cells in tissue. HA based hydrogels are useful tools in tissue engineering as the HA can be modified with bioactive peptides to facilitate the growth, differentiation and attachment of stem cells...

Novel Channelrhodopsins for Inhibition of Neuronal Activity
Optogenetics is rapidly evolving field that provides the ability to control neurons using light-sensitive proteins called channelrhodopsins (ChRs). When genetically expressed in neurons, ChRs have the ability to selectively manipulate neuronal activity in a light-dependent manner. Gene-therapy using ChRs has the exciting potential to be used to treat...

Red and Blue Shifted Channelrhodopsins
Channelrhodopsins (ChRs) are a type of optogenetic tool that have enabled targeted light-activation of neuron firing in tissue culture and in living organisms. Dr. John Spudich at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston has characterized several ChRs whose properties make them particularly useful for photocontrol of neuron firing, including...
