Cytokines and Growth Factors-GeneMedi Descrition: An Lanscape of Cytokines & Growth Factors, including family classification, functional and reagent products list

Cytokines are small cell-signaling proteins that are secreted by numerous cell types (some of the cytokines are transmembrane proteins). Importantly, most cytokines function in their local microenvironment, rather than in a systemic manner. Cytokines bind to specific cell surface receptors, thereby activating intracellular signaling cascades that involve phosphorylation events that ultimately result in gene transcription. […]
