Pre-formed fibrils are an invaluable preclinical model for exploring pathogenesis of neurological diseases through aggregation of misfolded proteins. Explore our pre-seeded PFFs to use in your research.
Neural factors are a class of protein molecules with neurotrophic activity that can promote the survival and regeneration of nerve cells. Explore our series of recombinant neural factors to support the culture and differentiation of nerve cells.
Partnering with Diagnostic Biochips, we now provide solutions for in vivo electrophysiology recordings, including high-quality multi-channel electrodes and other products to facilitate high-quality, efficient analysis of neural circuit structure and function.
Protein markers are an essential component in biological research and drug development. Whether it is for protein electrophoresis or western blot, our pre-stained protein markers help you quickly determine the molecular weight of the target protein or evaluate the transfer efficiency.
Streptavidin is a tetrameric protein providing 4 high-affinity biotin binding sites. We offer a wide array of products pre-conjugated with streptavidin to support your research as well as biotinylated proteins.
Setting the corresponding isotype control antibody to detect non-specific binding can reduce the generation of false positive results and evaluate the possible influencing factors accurately in the drug development process. Explore our isotype controls for your research.
The efficacy of a therapeutic antibody depends on the Fab fragment and its binding activity to the target antigen, but also depends on the Fc fragment and its interaction with key Fc receptors.Therefore, candidates must be tested against a panel of receptors during antibody engineering. Explore our comprehensive collection of recombinant Fc receptor proteins!
Human Erythropoietin (EPO) is also known as EP, erythropoetin or erthropoyetin, and is a glycoprotein hormone that controls erythropoiesis, or red blood cell production. EPO is a cytokine for erythrocyte (red blood cell) precursors in the bone marrow. is synthesized by renal peritubular cells in adults, with a small amount being produced in the liver. Regulation is believed to rely on a feed-back mechanism measuring blood oxygenation. Constitutively synthesized transcription factors for EPO, known as hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs), are hydroxylated and proteosomally digested in the presence of oxygen. It binds to the erythropoietin receptor (EpoR) on the red cell surface and activates a JAK2 cascade. Erythropoietin has its primary effect on red blood cells by promoting red blood cell survival through protecting these cells from apoptosis. It also cooperates with various growth factors involved in the development of precursor red cells. EPO has a range of actions including vasoconstriction-dependent hypertension, stimulating angiogenesis, and inducing proliferation of smooth muscle fibers. It has also been shown that erythropoietin can increase iron absorption by suppressing the hormone hepcidin. Erythropoietin has been shown to interact with the Erythropoietin receptor as its mechanism of action within the body. erythropoietin plays an important role in the brain's response to neuronal injury. EPO is also involved in the wound healing process.
