Protein Kinases Imaging Analysis

Protein Kinases Imaging Analysis

Protein kinases play important regulatory roles in intracellular signal transduction, and their activity can be altered by mutation and binding away from the active site. Dysregulation of protein kinase activity is closely related to a variety of human diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular and neurological diseases, which makes it an important target for drug discovery. Therefore, real-time and quantitative imaging analysis of protein kinases is very important.

Protein Kinases Imaging Analysis

In the past few years, different molecular imaging techniques such as optical imaging, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and nuclear imaging have been used for disease biomarker detection and drug development. Meanwhile, molecular imaging can also be used for non-invasive real-time, dynamic imaging of protein kinase activity in living cells.

CD BioSciences has been committed to the development of imaging technology for many years. We have developed a protein kinase reporter gene that can measure and image the dynamics of kinase activity at the single-cell level to better develop protein kinase-related drugs.
