Proteins & Peptides
When HGF/SF activates c-Met, the first proteins to be activated downstream are Grb2 (growth factor receptor bound protein 2) and Gab 1 (growth factor receptor bound protein 2 associated binder 1). Grb2 in turn may activate a number of kinase pathways, including the pathway from Ras to Raf to Mek and to MAPK(mitogen-activated protein kinase). Gab 1 activates PI3K (phosphoinositide 3 kinase), which activates STAT3 (signal transducer and activator of transcription). c-Met activation also induces activation of beta catenin, a key component of the wnt pathway, which translocates into the nucleus and participates in transcription regulation._x000B__x000B_The HGF/c-Met pathway plays an important role in the development of cancer. First through the activation of key oncogenic pathways (Ras, PI3K/STAT3, beta catenin), secondly through endothelial cell proliferation (neoangiogenesis), thirdly through increased protease production and hence cell dissociation leading to metastasis.

Antibody's suited for
Casp-4 (NT) antibody can be used for the detection of Caspase-4 by Western blot at 1 ug/ml. Depending on cell lines or tissues used, other cleavage products may be observed. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry (2-4 µg/ml starting dilution). Optimal concentration should be evaluated by serial dilutions.

Enzymes are cleaving the substrate. If the substrate is DNA they are called restriction enzymes. Activating enzymes will cut off the domain that is biological active to become functional.
