Signal Transduction

Solutions for signal transduction pathways

Comprehending the complexity of signal transduction pathways is critical for understanding normal biological conditions and disease states. Signal transduction involves the conversion of a cell surface event, namely, the binding by a specific plasma membrane receptor of a hormone, cytokine, growth factor, or other ligand, into a coherent cellular response. This response may be a complex cell nucleus-mediated event or may be locally expressed at the cell membrane such as altered activity of ion channels. Transduction of the initiating signal usually depends upon pathways of kinases that, when activated, follow a pre-defined network of interactions that ultimately lead to a biological endpoint.  Understanding the complexity of signal transduction pathways is critical for understanding normal biological conditions and disease states.

Molecular Devices offers industry standard solutions for both screening and researching of signal transduction pathways including GPCRs, kinases and phosphodiesterases, cAMP, and ion channels.
