Continuous manufacturing is finally gaining traction in the pharmaceutical industry, but development of the necessary production technologies is, fittingly, a continuous process. Ultimately, the drawn-out development work will deliver worthwhile results. Using continuous processing instead...
Bioprocessing is a massive undertaking, and the industry is always on the lookout for more ways to trim the fat and streamline manufacturing processes. This bioprocess intensification can improve efficiency, reduce costs and reagent usage, and even improve final product quality. But how intense is too intense?
Study results indicate that a previously uncharacterized 54 amino acid microprotein called PIGBOS sits on the outer mitochondrial membrane and plays a key role in modulating the unfolded protein response, or UPR, which mitigates a form of cellular stress. Dysregulation of UPR is thought to underpin a range of diseases including Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders.
