Check out our AlphaBioCoat Collagen is a fibrous protein found in the extracellular matrix and connective tissue. The most common form of collagen is type I and is most prevalent in bone, tendon and skin. It consists of 3 intertwined coiled subunits: 2 x α1 (I) chains and 1 x α2 (I) chain. Each chain contains 1050 amino acids wound tightly around one another in a characteristic right-handed triple helix. The triple-helical structure of collagen arises from unique abundance of the amino acids in collagen appear in a characteristic repeating motif G ly-X-Y, where X is usually proline and Y is usually hydroxy...

Autophagy Assay Kits
Detects Autophagy in Living CellsAutophagy is a conserved lysosomal recycling process by which cells break down their own components such as proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates. The process plays an important role in maintaining homeostasis and destroying intracellular pathogens. In addition, autophagy can be upregulated in times of starvation or stress to provide additional nutrients for the cell. Dysregulation of autophagy has implications for cancer, infection, and degenerative diseases.Autophagy is a three-stage process. First, cytoplasmic components targeted for degradation are sequestered, resulting in the formation ...

i-Fect Knocks Down Suspected Stress/Anxiety ReceptorThe molecular pathogenesis underlying anxiety disorders is still unclear. Here, the authors demonstrate that myristoylated alanine-rich C-kinase substrate like 1 (MARCKSL1) overexpression in mice increases spine formation in the amygdala and induces stress hormone upregulation and anxiety-like behaviors. Suppression of MARCKSL1 in the amygdala ameliorates both the increase in stress hormones and the elevated anxiety-like behaviors. Our results indicate that MARCKSL1 expression in the amygdala plays an important role in anxiety-like behaviors.This was proved, in part, by t...

Coming Soon Hepatocytes and CSCS
Differentiated from iPSCs Neuromics is partnering withJaveen Biosciences to bring you Cancer Stem Cells and Hepatocytes derived from donor Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells.Rodney Nash, Javeen CEO, and his team are working to fill a major gap in cell-based drug discoveries. The lack of cells from specific diseased or ethnic populations. This limits the ability to predict how well a drug candidate will work with a diverse population of patients.Dr. Rodney Nash, CEO, Javeen BiosciencesOver time, we envision Javeen Biosciences as having the ability to engineer cells from donors that match tightly with the needs of drug hunters.W...
