In 2022, our bloggers wrote on topics ranging from monkeypox outbreaks to cultured meat in biotech labs to preventing the next pandemic. Our top three most-viewed blog posts this year have the commonality of Promega products helping to advance important research in different fields and push science a step forward in the world. Take a look at Promega’s top three most-viewed blog posts of 2022.
#1 Monitoring Cellular Metabolism for NAFLD/NASH Liver Disease Research
This year’s top-viewed blog post discusses NAFLD and NASH, chronic liver conditions with no effective treatment that affect many metabolic pathways. Dr. Jolanta Vidugiriene, Senior Research Scientist at Promega Corporation, shares challenges to developing a treatment for liver diseases and how Promega can help. Read the blog to learn how assays for measuring various metabolic pathways can help researchers develop treatments and better understand liver diseases.
#2 Cytochrome P450 Inhibition: Old Drug, New Tricks
This blog post discusses how Cytochrome P450 inhibitors are used in combination with other drugs, and the importance of these proteins in drug metabolism. Since Cytochrome P450 enzymes play a major role in drug-drug interactions, it’s critical to understand how drugs affect the body in order to determine its safety. Learn about some reliable ways to screen the effects of drugs on CYP enzymes.
#3 Studying the Genetic Basis of Type 2 Diabetes with An Automated Maxwell® Workflow
As the prevalence of diabetes continues to rise, the genetic causes of type 2 diabetes largely remains a mystery. This blog post highlights Dr. Mark McCarthy’s lab at the Oxford Center for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism (OCDEM). The McCarthy lab uses Promega Maxwell Instruments for automated DNA extraction as they focus on understanding the genetic causes of type 2 diabetes.
