tebu-bio distributes new and unique BPS BioScience bromodomains in Europe

Bromodomains are a new emerging class of pharmaceutical targets in the field of Epigenetics. Bromodomains (BRDs) are protein domains involved in Epigenetics that recognize acetylated lysines.

March 27, 2012 - PRLog -- The BRDs are emerging as a new class of important drug targets, alongside HATs and HDACs, for cancer and inflammatory diseases such as cardiovascular disease and rheumatoid arthritis. The human genome contains at least 42 BRD-containing proteins with at least 56 unique BRDs. BRDs have been identified in HATs, methyltransferases (e.g. MLL), chromatin-remodeling complexes, and transcriptional coactivators.  

tebu-bio, in partnership with BPS Bioscience, now provides an ever-growing portfolio of BRDs and kits suitable for bromodomain profiling, inhibitor screening assays, and drug discovery.

“Providing Life Scientists with these unique and reliable BRD-related tools is very important for us” says Ali el Bayâ (Protein Line Sales Manager at tebu-bio, Offenbach, Germany). “We are very pleased to be able to offer our clients throughout Europe access to these high quality active products from BPS BioScience. BPS is a leader in providing unique and new active enzymes and it is our mission to bring these breakthrough assays to European researchers to boost their research" adds Ali el Bayâ.

Suzan Oberle (Director, Sales and Marketing at BPS Bioscience, San Diego, USA) tells us “We have recently released 17 different bromodomain products and we plan to make the remaining BRDs very soon. This will complete our large already-existing offering of unique enzymes (ex. HMTs, HDACs, HDMs, PARPs…)”. Suzan adds “Bromodomains have been associated with numerous diseases processes, including  cancer, viral replication, and inflammation. We believe BRDs will be the next big class of protein targets for drug discovery.  Since BRDs bind to acetylated lysines, researchers working on HDACs and other proteins involved in gene regulation will find these products to be useful tools to identify inhibitors or activators of epigenetic pathways”.
