R&D Systems offers a variety of tools for studying many areas of cancer research including signal transduction, apoptosis, DNA damage and repair, angiogenesis, cell adhesion, and more.
Cell proliferation plays a role in many physiological processes ranging from development to the repair of damaged tissues. There are many mechanisms for keeping cell proliferation under tight control. For instance, the activities of the proto-oncogenes are balanced by the actions of tumor suppressors. DNA damage and repair mechanisms exist in order to decrease the likelihood of genetic mutation and cell transformation. In addition, the immune system is designed to recognize and destroy cancerous cells. Accumulating disruptions in these homeostatic control mechanisms can lead to unregulated proliferation and cancer.
