Cytokines / Proteins
Cytokines (growth factors) play a central role in the self-renewal and differentiation of embryonic stem (ES) induced pluripotent (iPS) cells, as well as, in the reprogramming of somatic cells to iPS cells.
Cytokines typically serve as messengers between cells and elicit a cascade of intracellular signaling sequences by binding to transmembrane receptors. View Product Sheet
The timing, localization, concentration, and the combination of various factors is crucial to cell type specification and maturation, as well as, establishing
the essential environment for the maintenance of cells in vivo and in vitro.
Stemgent® Stemfactor™ recombinant human proteins and cytokines are extensively tested to ensure purity, stability, and high biological activity.
