SGC Oxford - Toxoplasmosis is a parasitic disease caused by the apicomplexan protozoa Toxoplasma gondii and can pose a significant threat to immunocompromised individuals, e.g. those undergoing organ transplantation or chemotherapy and HIV/AIDS patients, who cannot fight back the infection and are thus dependent on drugs to control the infection.

The Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC) and Pfizer today announced that Pfizer will join the SGC-led public-private collaboration to generate small molecule inhibitors – "chemical probes" – for proteins involved in epigenetic signaling. Pfizer and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) are now members of this collaboration, launched in late 2008 with the aim to provide the community with high quality research reagents, free from restriction on use.

The SGC has been awarded more than 0.5 M Euro as part of a joint EU FP7 -Health grant: 'Protein Binders for Characterisation of Human Proteome Function: Generation, Validation, Application "Affinomics", which encompasses 15 participant labs in eight different European countries for 5 years.

The Affinomics programme aims to leverage existing efforts in Europe to generate large-scale resources of validated protein-binding molecules ('binders') as affinity reagents for characterisation of the human proteome. These binders will be applied in comprehensive structural and functional analyses of protein expression, interactions and complexes.
