CD antigens related to Complement Activation Pathways

CD antigens are cells surface proteins as receptors. The CD antigens interaction are fundamental to cell signaling. Signal transduction is the process by which a cell recognizes changes in its environment and transforms that signal into modifications in cellular activity and gene expression. Cells receive information through a class of proteins known as receptors. When such CD antigen activate its receptor, the signal is carried into the cell usually by means of a second messenger.

Sino biological offers a comprehensive set of tools for CD antigens related to cell adhesion research, including recombinant proteins, antibodies (mouse mAbs, rabbit mAbs, and rabbit pAbs), ELISA kits, and ORF cDNA clones.
