Portal News is now available http://eepurl.com/cwOnAf. In this issue, we highlight how the rigorous application of chemical probes in biological systems can lead to better probes and improve drug discovery efforts through a case study of ABT-199 (venetoclax). We also highlight two programs that we rolled out late in 2016: Historic Compounds and Vendor Links.

The Portal now features a new class of compounds called Historic Compounds. These small molecules are typically non-selective or not sufficiently potent compared with other available chemical probes to merit the probe designation.

A table of all Historic Compounds currently posted to the portal is found here.  To recommend we add a historic compound - use our probe submission form.

This guest post by Ellen Berg defines a new initiative for the Portal - a chemical probe collection that is suitable for characterizing phenotypic screens - and will be formalized soon as a Portal Resource that will be maintained and updated with guidance from a subcommittee of our Scientific Advisory Board.

We are pleased to announce the publication of new chemical probes in the Portal. We have recently released validation data for the probes listed below. These probes are still under review by our SAB so it will take a few weeks for ratings and recommendations to emerge. Stay tuned, as we will be releasing more probes as well as inviting new submissions soon!

At the Chemical Probes Portal, our mission is to help change the way scientists find and use chemical probes. In addition to providing expert recommendations that guide probe selection and use, we aim to help make it easier for scientists to gain access to the high quality reagents they need to perform robust and reliable experiments. Thus, we are pleased to provide links from our chemical probe pages to the pages of trusted vendors where users can obtain the chemical probes they need.

We are pleased to announce the publication of chemical probes that target proteins in Protein methyltransferase (PMT) family. Today we released validation data for the probes listed below:

UNC0642

BIX-01294

CPI-169

CPI-360

We are pleased to announce the publication of chemical probes that target proteins in the PARP family. Today we released validation data for the probes listed below.These probes are still under review by our SAB so it will take a few weeks for ratings and recommendations to emerge. Stay tuned, as we will be releasing more probes as well as inviting new submissions over the coming weeks and months! You can submit your published probe or suggest we add a probe anytime here.

We are currently looking to expand the Portal's database to include inhibitors and chemical probes that target proteins in the Protein methyltransferase (PMT) family. If you have generated and published or published follow-on validation data for chemical probes that are active against PMT proteins please submit your probes to the portal.

For your probe submissions to be considered in our next Batch, please complete the submission by July 18, 2016.
