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.

  • the-mitofusin-2-in-mitochondrial-energizationThe mitofusin 2 (Mfn2) is a mitochondrial fusion protein whose expression decreased in skeletal muscle is related to processes such as obesity and type 2 diabetes and its deficiency decreases oxygen consumption, mitochondrial membrane potential and oxidation of glucose. In addition, he described an antiproliferative role in vascular disorders, and certain mutations in the Mfn2 gene, encoding this protein cause neurological disease Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) type 2A, a hereditary sensorimotor neuropathy classified as rare.
