Gels quantify cathepsin activity2

Gels quantify cathepsin activity2

Manu Platt (left), an associate professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University, and graduate student Keon-Young Park, produce high-quality images from the gels shown to quantify cathepsin activity. 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.
