In biology, cell signaling is a network of communications that governs basic and complex cellular processes. Depending upon the nature of the signal, it can be classified as either biochemical or mechanical. Biochemical signals are generated by biochemical molecules such as proteins, lipids, ions or hormones. Detection of these biochemical agents may shed light on the state of that particular type of signaling pathway.
Disruption of signaling networks often leads to diseases such as cancer, immune diseases and metabolic disorders. By understanding signaling pathways, researchers and clinicians may be able to treat disease conditions effectively and efficiently. AAT Bioquest offers a broad range of assays to conduct cost-effective analysis of various enzymes, proteins or small molecules involved cell signaling pathways. Measure activities such as phosphorylation, methylation and acetylation with unparalleled sensitivity and reproducibility.
