Loss of the Sigma-1 receptor disrupts pridopidine-induced gene expression

Objective: Investigate the role of S1R in the mechanism of action of pridopidine. Background: Sigma-1 receptor (S1R) is an ER chaperone protein involved in neuromodulation and neuroplasticity. Pridopidine is a…


Integrity, standards, and QC-related issues with big-data in pre-clinical drug discovery

The tremendous expansion of data analytics and public and private big datasets presents an important opportunity for pre-clinical drug discovery and development. In the field of life sciences, the growth…

A meta-metastasis analysis identifies pan-cancer markers and therapeutic targets

Metastasis is a leading cause of cancer-associated deaths across several cancer types, yet the molecular details of its development have not been fully elucidated. Transcriptomic analysis can provide insight into…


The international MAQC Society launches to enhance reproducibility of high-throughput technologies

Reproducibility is a fundamental hallmark of good science. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-led Microarray and Sequencing Quality Control (MAQC/SEQC) consortia conducted three projects 1,2,3 to assess the reliability and…
