Getinge slips Abiomed counter-claim in patent spat with Maquet subsidiary
Getinge (PINK:GETI B) yesterday slipped out of a counter-suit filed by Abiomed (NSDQ:ABMD) against its Maquet subsidiary in an infringement spat over a blood pump patent.

The pseudokinase MLKL activates PAD4-dependent NET formation in necroptotic neutrophils
Neutrophil extracellular trap (NET) formation can generate short-term, functional anucleate cytoplasts and trigger loss of cell viability. We demonstrated that the necroptotic cell death effector mixed lineage kinase domain–like (MLKL) translocated from the cytoplasm to the plasma membrane and stimulated downstream NADPH oxidase–independent ROS production, loss of cytoplasmic granules, breakdown of the nuclear membrane, chromatin decondensation, histone hypercitrullination, and extrusion of bacteriostatic NETs. This process was coordinated by receptor-interacting protein kinase-1 (RIPK1), which activated the ca...
