Research Impact: B-NDG Mice Used to Identify Lipid Transport Mechanism Driving T Cell Leukemogenesis

September 29, 2022

By John Charpentier, Ph.D. September 29, 2022 A recent study featuring Biocytogen mice identifies a non-vesicular lipid transport mechanism required for T cell leukemogenesis. Wenbing Zhong and colleagues at Jinan University in Guangzhou, China report that a lipid binding protein called ORP4L, which is expressed in adult T cell leukemia (ATL) cells but not normal […]

Research Impact: Custom Biocytogen mouse models used to identify critical mediator of inflammation-driven metastases

September 7, 2022

By John Charpentier, Ph.D. September 7, 2022 While metastases are ultimately responsible for the large majority of cancer deaths, most oncology drugs in development target primary tumors, and few specifically prevent metastasis. Although surgical resection of solid tumors is an effective early treatment intervention, the resulting inflammation can promote metastasis by increasing adhesion of circulating […]
