Small molecules are increasingly being used as tools to modulate signaling pathways and understand cell biology. Whether to regulate stem cell biology by affecting reprogramming, self-renewal, or differentiation, or to better understand mechanism of cancers by targeting tumorigenic signaling nodes, the right small molecule can transform a research project. STEMCELL Technologies offers small molecules that are being widely used in high impact research to target the key pathways in stem cell biology.
Why Use Small Molecules?
- Can affect signaling pathways within the cell.
- More stable and cost-effective than growth factors.
- High purity and low lot-to-lot variability in activity.
- Effects can be finely tuned by varying concentration.
