Description

The PPP Unit is at the Institute of Biotechnology and Biomedicine of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (IBB-UAB). It counts with the necessary facilities for the design, production, and purification of recombinant proteins. This facility is coordinated by the Nanobiotechnology Group, led by Prof. Antonio Villaverde. It has both highly specialized personnel and the necessary equipment to offer a “tailored” service for the design, production, and purification of recombinant proteins using both prokaryotic and eukaryotic expression systems. Its location allows this service to be linked with other complementary services available within the university (Cell Culture, Cytometry, Production of Antibodies, Microscopy, Proteomic, and Bioinformatic, X-ray crystallography, and Microarray and Sequencing Services), as well as facilitating the management of subsequent uses of the produced protein.

Counts with a laboratory perfectly equipped for the bioproduction of proteins, another with all the necessary equipment for molecular cloning, plus one lab for the purification and characterization, and finally one for cryopreservation.

The PPP Unit has implemented the ISO9001 certification for standard quality control system.

Reaching for the unreachable: New efforts to treat Lysosomal Storage Diseases

NANBIOSIS researchers pioneer novel treatments for Lysosomal Storage Diseases utilizing extracellular vesicles and liposomes, offering hope to patients. 1 March 2024, Vall d’Hebron Research Institute/ICMAB-CSIC (Barcelona) Lysosomal Storage Diseases (LSDs) encompass a group of rare disorders caused by mutations in lysosomal proteins. These mutations can lead to dysfunctional proteins responsible for breaking down cellular materials, resulting in the accumulation of deposits. Such accumulations can manifest in various neurological symptoms, ranging from progressive neurodegeneration to severe cognitive impairment. Often emerging in childhood, LSDs tragically culminate in premature death for many patients. Currently, up to 14 subtypes of LSDs can be treated[...]
