  • Publication number: 20030170738
    Abstract: The present provides compounds capable of modulating IL-4 receptor-mediated IgE production, as well as IL-4 induced processes associated therewith, methods and kits for identifying such compounds that utilize a retinoid X receptor as a surrogate analyte and methods of using the compounds in a variety of in vitro, in vitro and ex vivo contexts.

  • Publication number: 20030170724
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods for identifying and/or rank ordering target polypeptides that interact with a candidate polypeptide. Potential targets for the candidate polypeptide are identified using an interaction assay. A set of mutants are derived from the candidate polypeptide and a functional profile is obtained for the set of mutants and the candidate polypeptide. Also, for each identified potential target, an interaction profile is obtained for the set of mutants and the candidate polypeptide. The interaction profiles are compared to the functional profile and based on the degree of correspondence between the profiles, the potential targets are identified and/or rank ordered as target polypeptides that interact to the candidate polypeptide.

  • Publication number: 20030022196
    Abstract: The invention relates to methods and compositions useful for screening for altered cellular phenotypes using an inducible expression system to enrich for and detect the altered phenotypes and, more particularly, relates to screening libraries of candidate bioactive agents, for example, nucleic acids and peptides, in cells using an regulatable expression system to enrich for a subpopulation of cells having an altered phenotype due to the presence of a candidate bioactive agent.
