|Autophagy Research Update: What a difference a year makes!
By Christina Towers, PhD Over the last two decades the field of autophagy has exploded! Innovative techniques, comprehensive analysis and disease-relevant models have yielded basic and clinical discoveries of conseque... Read more.
|Neurovascular signaling for repair enhances brain metastasis
By Jamshed Arslan, Pharm. D., PhD. Stroke is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide. Cellular players – neurons, astrocytes, endothelial and stromal cells – involved in post-stroke repair t... Read more.
|Developmental regulator Daam2 promotes glial cell tumors by degrading Von Hippel-Lindau protein
By Jamshed Arslan Pharm.D. Glioblastoma is an aggressive type of cancer that forms from the star-shaped glial cells of the central nervous system, called astrocytes. Intriguingly, several genes linked to glioblasto... Read more.
|The effects of curcumin on IKB Alpha and the NFkB signaling pathway
The IKK complex, or inhibitor of NFkB kinase, is composed of IKK alpha and IKK beta. These kinases are at the core of the NFkB signaling cascade. The NFkB family is made up of transcription factors that are kept inactive in the cytoplasm through... Read more.
|Carbonic anhydrase IX (CAIX) - a reliable histochemical marker of hypoxia
Carbonic anhydrase IX is a member of the carbonic anhydrase family. This family consists of catalytic enzymes capable of converting carbon dioxide and water into carbonic acid, protons, and bicarbonate ions. This family of molecules is abundantly e... Read more.
|CAIX - One of the Best Cellular Markers of Hypoxia
The protein, carbonic anhydrase IX, belongs to the carbonic anhydrase family which consists of enzymes that rapidly convert carbon dioxide and water into the end products of carbonic acid, protons, and bicarbonate ions. These enzymes play a widespread... Read more.
|Getting SHIP-shape Over Tumour Suppression
PTEN antibodies have shown PTEN to be an important tumor suppressor and, in mutated form, a factor in cancer development. However, a recent study, led by Robert Rickert, shows that the SHIP gene may also be an important tumor suppressor in B-cell lymp... Read more.
|PTEN Antibodies and Cancer Research
Phosphatase and tensin homologue (PTEN) antibodies are important tools for cancer research. PTEN is an important tumor suppressor but, in mutated form, is also expressed in a high number of cancers. We at Novus Biologicals have a wide PTEN antibody da... Read more.
