Understanding cell biology processes like cell signaling, proliferation and growth, cell cycle, and epigenetic regulation is critical to bioscience research. Some diseases, like cancer, can avoid normal growth signals to accelerate disease development. Others, like Parkinson’s disease, are identified by the abnormal death of a specific cell type.


Discover our resources to learn about the pathways and structures that regulate cell biology processes. From cell cycle to protein phosphorylation to autophagy, you can explore our educational resources and find our scientist-made reagents to empower your research.

A type of programmed cell death, apoptosis, is a tightly regulated process used by cells for self-elimination.


Learn more about apoptosis >


Autophagy is a process that degrades and removes dysfunctional proteins, damaged organelles, and intracellular pathogens.


Learn more about autophagy >

Cell Cycle

In response to stimuli such as growth factors, cells undergo a series of tightly-regulated steps known as the cell cycle.


Learn more about the cell cycle >


Chemical modifications of DNA and DNA-binding proteins alter chromatin modeling to hide or reveal DNA segments thereby altering gene expression.


Learn more about epigenetics >

Growth Factors

Growth factors are signaling molecules that regulate proliferation, differentiation, migration, and development.


Learn more about growth factors >


Microtubules, intermediate filaments, and microfilaments form the cytoskeletal network and have diverse functions.


Learn more about the cytoskeleton >


Small cell-derived vesicles, exosomes can serve as vehicles for protein removal but also are important drivers of intercellular communication.


Learn more about exosomes >


Protein phosphorylation is a critical step in most signaling pathways and can result in the activation or deactivation of downstream proteins.


Learn more about phosphorylation >

Epitope Tags

Epitope tags are incorporated into a protein of interest to make identification and isolation of that protein easier and more robust.
