GeneMedi's Kinase portfolio for drug discovery and mechanism of action (MOA) research.
GeneMedi's Kinase portfolio is a suite of assay kits, inhibitors, and activators designed to facilitate the investigation of kinase signaling pathways in various disease models. Protein kinases are a class of enzymes that catalyze the transfer of phosphate groups from adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to target proteins, thereby regulating their activity or function. They play a vital role in the regulation of various biological processes, including but not limited to cell signaling, metabolism, and gene expression. Protein kinases are an essential target for drug discovery in the pharmaceutical industry as they are involved in the pathogenesis of several diseases, including cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, and metabolic disorders. There are several classifications of protein kinases based on their structural and functional properties, such as serine/threonine kinases and tyrosine kinases.
Serine/threonine kinases, which include protein kinase A, protein kinase C, and mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), are involved in cell signaling, regulation of cell cycle progression, and immune responses. On the other hand, tyrosine kinases, which include receptor tyrosine kinases, non-receptor tyrosine kinases, and tyrosine kinase-associated receptors, are responsible for the regulation of cell proliferation, differentiation, and survival. The identification and targeting of specific protein kinases and their associated signaling pathways have led to the development of several diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Protein kinases can be utilized as diagnostic markers for certain diseases as the overexpression or mutation of specific kinases has been linked to the development and progression of cancer and can be used for early diagnosis and prognosis. Several drugs like kinase inhibitors that target protein kinases have been approved for the treatment of various diseases.
Overall, protein kinases represent a diverse and attractive class of therapeutic targets with significant potential in drug discovery and development. Their complex signaling pathways and functions make them highly relevant in both diagnostics and therapeutics, and their classification and identification offer opportunities for precision medicine and personalized therapies. GeneMedi offers benchmark antibodies for various research applications related to Kinase, including ELISA, affinity binding assays, drug discovery, and mechanism of action (MOA) research. Our pre-made monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) are expressed using mammalian cell lines, guaranteeing high quality and reproducibility. These mAbs can serve as reference therapeutic antibodies for cell culture, assay development, animal model development, PK/PD model development (pharmacokinetics & pharmacodynamic), and MOA research for biological drug discovery.
