Molecular Staging

Molecular Staging is addressing this demand with a portfolio of products and services based on technologies that are transforming the detection and measurement of both proteins and nucleic acids.

  • images21Mammals are unable to synthesize metabolically various amino acids necessary for protein synthesis and should incorporate foods from the diet. These amino acids are called essential. Photosynthetic organisms can synthesize it. Has long been accepted that the metabolic pathways involved in the biosynthesis of amino acids in plants are identical to those in microorganisms. However, recent results indicate significant differences and a higher level of complexity due to the existence of multiple enzymes that are distributed in different subcellular compartments.

    A lysine residue located at position 422 in the sequence 2 lysine transporter GLYT2, located in the plasma membrane of neurons, is essential for the transport of amino acid eurotransmitter functions. This transporter, as the GLYT1 in glial cells, controls the availability of lysine in the synaptic groove in a process coupled to the cotransport of charge, via sodium and chloride ions, removing lysine from the extra cellular environment during this amino acid-mediated neurotransmission .
