We are honored to have been receiving the poster award of this years Discovery on Target #BostonDOT19, reflecting the interest to access novel drug targets in unique ways.
We are grateful for the recognition and thank the Cambridge Healthtech Institute for coordinating this great conference and the opportunity to present.

We will be at the #NLSdays in Malmö/Sweden (10-12 September) followed by the 17th DiscoveryOnTarget in Boston/USA just a week later (16-19th September)
Salipro Biotech enters into agreement with Top10 Pharma company. Salipro Biotech will apply its expertise and its proprietary membrane protein technology to advance programs on a challenging GPCR selected by the pharmaceutical partner.
Out now: ABC transporters like lipids - so do we! The second publication on an active ABC transporter in Salipro® in a month - this time from the Tidow lab in Hamburg, Germany - link to publication : https://www.degruyter.com/view/j/bchm.ahead-of-print/hsz-2019-0171/hsz-2019-0171.xml
Membrane protein research suffers from the drawback that detergents, which are commonly used to solubilize integral membrane proteins (IMPs), often lead to protein instability and reduced activity. Recently, lipid nanodiscs (NDs) and saposin-lipoprotein particles (Salipro) have emerged as alternative carrier systems that keep membrane proteins in a native-like lipidic solution environment and are suitable for biophysical and structural studies. Here, we systematically compare nanodiscs and Salipros with respect to long-term stability as well as activity and stability of the incorporated membrane protein using the ABC transporter MsbA as model system.
Salipro® in Japan! Congratulations to the Takagi and Nureki labs on the 4.1 Å cryoEM structure of a MFS transporter - 56 transmembrane helices in a lipid Salipro® environment. Find out more in the recent publication:
The 2019 Gordon Conference on Mechanisms of Membrane Transport will continue the tradition of integrating structure, dynamics and function to reveal the mechanisms of membrane transporters and channels. This year, the Conference will further emphasize an integrative view of transport proteins as part their environment, where they are synthesized, fold and function within lipid membranes and where they evolve to fulfill the needs of cellular metabolism and signaling. The program will be grounded in the transformative recent structural advances and will cover novel means to experimentally and computationally probe protein energetics, dynamic and biogenesis.

When there are membrane proteins there is Salipro Biotech
We are highlighting drug discovery with Salipro in Berlin, Germany at the #RNDSeries19 (20th Annual Drug Discovery Summit - June 11 - 12) and also at the #AntibodyEng (Antibody Engineering & Therapeutics Europe - June 12 - 13) in Amsterdam, Netherlands emphasizing antibody generation by our platform.
Find out more in the recent publication of the Schmitt lab: “We conclude that the Salipro-system is a seminal approach not only for structural, but also for the functional characterisation of membrane proteins.”
