Targeting Talk: Disposal, Sterilization, Intrastriatal Administration, and Activation

Your targeted toxin data sheet gives the following instruction for disposal: “Care in disposal is mandatory; autoclaving or exposure to 1 M sodium hydroxide will inactivate the material. All labware that comes into contact with this material should be likewise treated.” I am wondering if I can deactivate saporin by using 10% bleach or if […]

Cholinergic modulation of spindle bursts in the neonatal rat visual cortex in vivo Hanganu IL, Staiger JF, Ben-Ari Y, Khazipov R J Neurosci 27(21):5694-5705, 2007. The authors investigated the relationship between cholinergic drive and spindle burst oscillation driven by retinal waves. 0.5 µl of 0.2-µg/µl 192-IgG-SAP (Cat. #IT-01) was injected into both ventricles of rat […]


Targeted Therapy for Chronic Pain

In 1997, SP-SAP (a chemical conjugate of Substance P and the ribosome-inactivating protein saporin) was created to eliminate Substance P receptor (SPR) neurons that propagate the signal for chronic pain. ATS has successfully completed preclinical studies, safety tests in animal models and a GLP toxicology study in rat, funded both internally and by the National […]
