Chemokine Receptors Imaging Analysis

Chemokine Receptors Imaging Analysis

Chemokine receptors are members of the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily with seven transmembrane domains. Chemokines are a large class of small proteins that regulate leukocyte function by binding to specific chemokine receptors. There are nearly 50 chemokines and more than 20 chemokine receptors in the human body, and one chemokine can bind to many different chemokine receptors, and vice versa. Their interactions constitute complex regulatory networks that mediate cell migration and are closely related to diseases such as inflammation and cancer. Therefore, imaging analysis of chemokine receptors is important for drug development and disease treatment.

Chemokine Receptors Imaging Analysis

In recent years, researchers have used advanced fluorescence microscopy to study the oligomerization of chemokine receptors, ranging from homodimers and homooligomers to heterodimers. Studies have shown that the dimerization of many chemokine receptors has dynamic properties.

CD BioSciences has been committed to the development of fluorescent dyes and imaging technology for many years. We can study the expression and structure of chemokine receptor dimer on the surface of living cells by FRET imaging, quantitative microanalysis, single molecule microscope and fluorescence fluctuation spectroscopy. In addition, we also studied the stability, kinetics and function of chemokine receptor dimer. This will help to develop new strategies to design chemokine receptor targeted drugs.
