Linking chromosome 22 to bladder exstrophy

In a recent study, facilitated by the NGI at SciLifeLab, researchers analyzed 76 Swedish patients with BEEC and identified a novel mutation in the LZTR1 gene which could be a new candidate gene connected to the underlying causes of the congenital urogenital malformation known as bladder exstrophy.

Improving protein synthesis

Protein synthesis is a biotechnical process in which selected genes are inserted into host cells that can then produce large amounts of proteins. These proteins, called recombinant proteins, can be used as medicines or enzymes. In a study, co-led by Håkan Jönsson (SciLifeLab/KTH), researchers investigated how they could optimize the synthesis.

New method for protein analysis-based “liquid biopsy”

In a recent study led by Janne Lehtiö (SciLifeLab/KI) researchers developed a new method, able to detect tissue leakage proteins as well as protein variants often visible in diseases, in blood plasma samples. The method has the potential to identify cancer, heart failure and infections.
