Gels quantify cathepsin activity

Gels quantify cathepsin activity

Georgia Tech/Emory University biomedical engineering assistant professor Manu Platt (standing) and graduate student Keon-Young Park examine gels that display the activity levels of cathepsins, which are protein-degrading enzymes. In a new study, the researchers are studying levels of cathepsins and other signaling chemicals in an effort to predict the invasiveness of breast cancer in individual patients.
