Cytokines & Growth Factors

Cytokines and chemokines are small proteins secreted by a variety of cell types. They are important signal messengers mediating cell communication and activating other target cells through binding to specific receptors. Cytokines play a central role in the immune system - in which the chemokines mainly function as chemoattractants. They also coordinate and regulate other biological processes such as cell growth and development or tissue repair.

PromoKine's recombinant cytokines, chemokines, growth factors, soluble receptors and CD antigens have been produced in E. coli, yeast, insect, plant or mammalian cells. They are highly purified and biologically active.
