Cells respond to a wide range of extracellular signals, frequently by activating intracellular signaling pathways that cause changes in cell function or behavior. In response to growth factors, cytokines, or other signaling molecules, these signaling pathways may be activated, resulting in intracellular activation of kinase pathways. CST provides a comprehensive portfolio of high-quality products for probing molecular signaling networks. A disease-causing gene is replaced with a healthy copy of the gene. Inactivating a disease-causing gene that is no longer functional. Introducing a new or modified gene into the body to aid in the treatment of a disease.
