Tracking Dach1 Along the Path of Novel Stem Cell Research

admin September 25, 2014

  By Ashley Juavinett The brain is composed of hundreds, perhaps thousands of different types of neurons that can be differentiated based on their shape, genetics, electrophysiology, or their location. While we can now transform stem cells into neurons in a dish, the next question is: which types of neurons can we generate? Many researchers… Continue Reading »

Investigating Kidney Development with Proteintech’s Six2 Antibody

admin August 18, 2014

  By Ashley Juavinett Most likely, you’ve got two kidneys, each composed of functional units known as nephrons, convoluted loops of epithelial tissue that are constantly working to filter your blood and produce urine. You might have 200,000 of these nephrons, or you might have 2 million – the more, the better. Unfortunately, eating your… Continue Reading »


Antibodies for Cilia Development

admin August 14, 2014

    By Deborah Grainger The primary cilium acts as a sensory organelle that transfers information from the environment to the cell interior. Once thought of as an evolutionary artefact, this organelle is now understood to be crucial for regulating important cellular processes, including the cell cycle, cytoskeletal organization, intraflagellar transport and signaling pathways such… Continue Reading »


Antibodies for Developmental Biology

admin August 12, 2014

    Guest blogger Simon Hackett reviews several protein families vital to development; a selection of Proteintech antibodies recognizing these targets are listed alongside… Developmental gene products, as their name suggests, control the lineage and ultimately the fate of many different cell types in the developing embryo. These proteins play an important role in the resulting… Continue Reading »
