EML4-ALK Cell Lines and In Vivo Models

The EML4-ALK fusion gene occurs in approximately 5% of non-small-cell lung cancers (NSCLCs), making this oncogene an important drug target.  The development of ALK tyrosine kinase inhibitors (ALK-TKIs) has been a major advance in treating NSCLC with this fusion gene, but acquired resistance to ALK-TKIs ultimately limits their use.  To support the development of next-generation …Read More >

DEL Insight: Novel Applications with the Bifunctional Linker of DNA-encoded Molecules

Due to the special configuration of the DNA encoded library (DEL), each DEL molecule carries a DNA sequence encoding its identity through a bifunctional linker. The linkers that are considered “redundant” and “troublesome” in traditional drug discovery actually offer innate advantages in many application scenarios. In this article, we review how to utilize DNA-encoded libraries …Read More >
