Neuroblastoma RAS viral (v-ras) oncogene homolog (N-RAS)
belongs to Ras family of small GTPases. It serves as a signal transducer from growth
factor receptors and activates numerous effector molecules resulting in cell growth,
differentiation and survival ...
Interferons (IFNs) are pleiotropic cytokines that mediate anti-viral responses, inhibit proliferation and participate in immune surveillance and tumor suppression by inducing the transcription of a number of IFN-stimulated genes. The IFN family ...
Angiotensin II, a major effector peptide of the
renin-angiotensin system, is believed to play a critical role in the pathogenesis of
cardiovascular remodeling associated with hypertension, heart failure, and
The biological importance of PTK2 protein tyrosine kinase 2, or Focal
adhesion kinase 1 (FAK1)-mediated signal transduction is
underscored by the fact that this tyrosine kinase plays a fundamental role in embryonic
development, in control of cell migration, cell ...
The family of Protein kinase C (PKC)
contains 3 functional protein types, "conventional"
PKC-alpha, PKC-beta, and
PKC-gamma that are activated by calcium and Diacylglycerol
(DAG), "novel" PKC-delta,
PKC-epsilon, PKC-eta, ...
