With this unique project, several pharmaceutical companies (AbbVie, Bayer, Boehringer Ingelheim, Janssen, MSD, Pfizer, and Takeda) have entered into a pre-competitive collaboration with the SGC, to make a large number of innovative high-quality probes available to the research community which can be found here: http://www.sgc-ffm.uni-frankfurt.de/.
These probes complement the probe set generated by the SGC and its academic and industry collaborators. Moreover, several probes are suitable for in vivo use. All probe and control compound-associated data and recommendations on use, are presented in a database, thereby providing both a unique resource of chemical tools and target-related knowledge in order to help researchers to decide, which chemical tools to choose, at which concentrations to use them, and how to interpret the resulting data taking into account the profiling results. We are inviting other companies and academics to contact us and provide high-quality probes to the community. Please contact SGC Frankfurt if you wish to participate in this project.
