The ability of eukaryotic cells to assume various shapes, provide communication pathways and direct movement depends on a complex network of protein filaments found throughout the cytoplasm: the cytoskeleton.
Covance offers a large collection of antibodies to the cytokeratins, tubulins, MAPs and actomyosin components. These antibodies have been carefully characterized and selected for optimum performance in immunoblotting and immunostaining applications.
Proteins on the surface of the cell mediate intercellular communication and contact, often transducing specific signals to the cell interior. We provide a large family of antibodies to endothelial cell surface markers including integrins, thrombomodulin, cell adhesion molecules and HIV envelope proteins.
