The Importance of Cellular Pathways in Life Sciences
Most cellular processes are part of specific molecular pathways. A deep knowledge of each step of these pathways is important to tackle some of the key open questions within the life sciences and fight diseases. For example, diagnostic methods and procedures can be improved and new drugs for specific targets can be developed with a deeper understanding of cellular pathways and their molecular processes.
To survey the effects of newly developed drugs, diseases or other environmental influences on cellular pathways (or the effect of a malfunctioning signal transduction), scientists need consider several factors:
- All participating proteins
- Other molecules present
- The order and type of interaction occurring in the specific pathway
The Antibodies & Proteins Hub can provide researchers with a growing number of schematic cellular pathways, so they can be sure to not miss any step or protein that is part of the respective signal transduction.
Furthermore, it is essential to work with proper, high-quality antibodies, proteins and ELISA kits when testing the upcoming effects in experiments. The pathways provided by the Antibodies & Proteins Hub do not only show you the involved proteins. You will also find respective antibodies, proteins and ELISA kits for your experiments in these research areas.
Stay tuned for our next post, where we will describe some of most interesting pathways in more detail. Until then you can always find more examples of cellular pathways on the Antibodies & Proteins Hub. Please comment and let us know what pathway you are most interested in. It will be taken under consideration when crafting future blog posts.
