Sigma Introduces Gene Regulation Antibody Array
Product News Sep 14, 2005
Sigma, a division of Sigma- Aldrich Corporation has announced the launch of an antibody array for identifying Gene Regulation in cell or tissue extracts.
Panorama™ Ab Microarray - Gene Regulation I Kit is designed for studying protein _expression in cell or tissue extracts and is compatible with human, mouse, and rat proteins.
The antibodies represent families of proteins found in the nucleus that are involved in chromatin remodeling and regulation of gene expression.
These include transcription factors, histone modifying enzymes, along with antibodies that specifically recognize histone modification.
"Gene regulation is known to be involved in development, immune defenses, and tumorigenesis of cells,” commented Alicia Pruett, Product Manager, Array Technology.
“We are certain this platform technology will enhance many research areas including disease research and drug development.”
“Researchers can confidently elucidate pathways and identify mechanisms involved in up or down regulation in less than 2 hours."
