PI3K - Akt Upstream Signaling from Cell Signaling Technology, Inc.

Video   Feb 08, 2017


Stimulation of membrane receptors by growth factors or cytokines results in signal transduction leading to the activation of the kinase Akt,. Active Akt then can activate (phosphorylate) a large number of downstream proteins (substrates) that can be grouped by their effects on protein synthesis, survival, proliferation, glucose metabolism, neuroscience and other cellular effects. This presentation discusses the details of upstream signaling involved in Akt activation. Visit http://www.cellsignal.com to see antibodies for the study of Akt Signaling.

How Does Coffee Compare to Cocaine and Cannabis?


‘I can’t get started without a coffee.’

For many people, this statement is a standard morning greeting. But the mass consumption of coffee can make us forget what caffeine really is- a drug. So how does it compare to other drugs, namely cocaine and cannabis?


The Science of Caffeine: The World's Most Popular Drug


Reactions is looking at the science behind the most popular drug: caffeine. Delicious coffee chemistry!


The World's First Bioelectronic Medicine


Northwestern University and Washington University School of Medicine researchers have developed the first example of a bioelectronic medicine: an implantable, biodegradable wireless device that speeds nerve regeneration and improves healing of a damaged nerve. Their device delivered pulses of electricity to damaged nerves in rats after a surgical repair process, accelerating the regrowth of nerves and enhancing the recovery of muscle strength and control. The device is the size of a dime and the thickness of a sheet of paper and dissolves in the body after about two weeks.
