High throughput microscopy zeroes in on new estrogen receptor regulator

A high throughput microscopy technique enabled Baylor College of Medicine  researchers to identify a new modulator of estrogen receptor alpha that they called UBR5. It is a highly amplified gene in many tumors, including breast, prostate and ovarian cancer. With high throughput microscopy and automated image analysis, researchers can evaluate many mechanistic measures under several hundred … Continue reading
