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.

  • structure-of-an-enzyme-and-its-inhibitor1Metalloproteinase’s, enzymes involved in the process of hydrolysis and digestion of proteins, play vital roles in physiological processes and diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, osteoporosis and cancer. We have seen one of these metalloproteinase’s, the hCPA4 (human carboxypeptidase’s A4), is over expressed in some tumor cell lines. A team of researchers from the CSIC and the Autonomous University of Barcelona have solved the atomic structure of this enzyme complex formed and Latex in, the only known endogenous inhibitor of Metallocarboxypeptidases.
