Chemical communication is often the basis for growth and differentiation of cells. In most cases, this communication is based on endogenous proteins - cytokines. This category of regulatory peptides controls the proliferation and differentiation of target cells. Many cytokines are therefore referred to as growth factors, but proteins that play a central role as mediators of immunological reactions and inflammatory processes also belong to this peptide family. The five main groups of cytokines are: Interferons, interleukins, colony-stimulating factors, tumor necrosis factors and chemokines.
Due to their central role in various cell biological processes, cytokines are used as recombinant proteins for a variety of experiments and procedures. Whether for immunology, cell & developmental biology or cancer research: we offer a wide range of recombinant growth factors and cytokines for your research.
