Monoclonal antibodies for flow analysis of apoptotic cells and pathways
Apoptosis is the process of programmed cell death. It occurs through several highly regulated pathways and plays a critical role in the development and maintenance of cellular and tissue homeostasis.
Defective apoptotic processes have been implicated in an extensive variety of diseases. Research indicates dysregulation of apoptotic signaling can lead to various malignancies, resistance to therapies, autoimmunity and many other disease-related states. Adversely, excessive apoptosis has been shown to contribute to a variety of neurodegenerative diseases.
Apoptosis research plays a vital role in identifying causative or contributive factors in disease. Beckman Coulter’s continuously expanding line of monoclonal antibodies provides the ideal solution for flow cytometric analysis of apoptotic cells and pathways.
