|Pathway Highlight: Which caspase substrates contribute to the morphological features associated with apoptosis?
Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, is controlled by a caspase signal cascade that activates downstream signals to induce the morphological changes used to differentiate apoptosis from other forms of cell death. Novus Biologicals offers a variet... Read more.
|Altered expression of BCL2 in cancer
Similar to other cell processes, the balance between cell survival and cell death is an important equilibrium that when altered expression of genes can lead to a variety of disease. For example, too little cell death can promote cell overgrowth a... Read more.
|Cytochrome C - a mediator of apoptosis
Cytochrome C is a small heme protein within the inner mitochondrial membrane responsible for carrying electrons within the respiratory transport chain. Additionally, cytochrome c has also been identified as a player in programmed cell death (apop... Read more.
|AKT Antibody Assays: A Complex Area with an Easy Solution
We at Novus Biologicals place a lot of emphasis on the kinase signaling pathways. Kinases, or phosphotransferase enzymes play a key role in phosphorylation signaling. Over 500 human protein kinases have so far been discovered. They play essential role... Read more.
