  • The way to study of tyrosine kinases receptor science news IV.23

    Receptor tyrosine kinases - one of the key links in a cell signaling system. They play a key role in the regulation of intercellular interactions, cell proliferation, morphogenesis and metabolism. Their dysfunctions are associated with such socially significant diseases as cancer and diabetes. In M.M. Shemyakin and Yu.A. Ovchinnikov Institute of bioorganic chemistry several research groups perform researches, concerning receptor tyrosine kinases.
