Applications of Bio-Plex Pro™ Cell Signaling Akt and MAPK Assay Panels in Signal Transduction Pathways

The Akt and MAPK signal transduction pathways are key areas of study for their roles in cell growth, function, and death, as well as for their possible roles in cancer development and diabetes. Bio-Rad’s new Bio-Plex Pro™ Akt and MAPK cell signaling assays enable researchers to study the activation of these key pathways as a response to various stimuli. This technical report validates the sensitivity and specificity of these assays after cells were exposed to insulin, EGF (epidermal growth factor), and UV radiation.
