Full-length, Biologically-Relevant mTOR
Tue, 09/11/2007 - 12:22pm
Millipore Corporation offers full-length mTOR kinase as part of their KinaseProfiler Service. The mTOR kinase has recently been linked to many important human diseases, including cancer, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease ad neurological disorders. The kinase enables the regulation of cell cycle progression, cell growth, protein synthesis, ribosome biogenesis and autophagy, important target factors in the study of mTOR related diseases. The KinaseProfiler Service offers 264 kinases for selectivity profiling, using a catalytic radiometric assay format. The addition of the full-length mTOR to the KinaseProfiler panel provides confidential screening of compounds against this critically important kinase.
