Inflammasomes & innate immunity
AdipoGen Life Sciences is an expert in inflammasome research. Inflammasomes are multi-protein complexes whose activity has been implicated in physiological and pathological inflammation.
The hallmarks of inflammasome activation are the secretion of the mature forms of caspase-1 and interleukin-1β (IL-1β) from cells of the innate immune system.
Beneficial inflammatory responses arise by maintaining homeostatic tissue function (detection and repair of tissue damages after trauma or pathogen invasion). Among the harmful inflammatory responses are particle-induced sterile inflammation, caused by host-derived particles such as monosodium urate (MSU) crystals, as well as environmental and industrial particles such as asbestos, silica and metallic nanoparticles.
Accumulating evidence also implicates inflammasome activity in numerous other diseases, including cancer and the development of metabolic diseases (like type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis), some neurodegenerative diseases (like Alzheimer, Prion, Parkinson), autoimmune diseases (such as multiple sclerosis) and inflammatory bowel diseases.
AdipoGen provides a large selection of research reagents targeted to the various components of the inflammasome, thanks to a long-term collaboration with the Professor Jurg Tschopp group - the team who discovered the inflammasome in 2002.
AdipoGen also provides a large selection of research reagents targeted to the various components of the immune system. The innate immune system plays an essential role in the host’s first line of defence against microbial invasion and involves the recognition of pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) or endogenous danger signals through the sensing of danger-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) by pattern recognition receptors (PRRs).

B & T cells immune regulation
Cancer immunotherapy (also called immuno-oncology) is the artificial stimulation of the immune system to treat cancer, improving the system’s natural ability to fight cancer. Immune checkpoints are regulators of the immune system. These pathways are crucial for self-tolerance, which prevents the immune system from attacking cells indiscriminately. Inhibitory checkpoint molecules, such as CTLA-4, PD-1, PD-L1 or LAG-3 are targets for cancer immunotherapy due to their potential for use in multiple types of cancers. AdipoGen Life Sciences offers a broad panel of immune checkpoint reagents, including:

Obesity is at an all-time high and numbers just keep growing, with it increasing the chances of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer, it is not a surprise that obesity and metabolism are hot topics for research. It is becoming evident that these diseases are linked to unbalanced nutrition together with closely related inflammatory processes.
To facilitate improved treatment of the diseases, it is necessary to understand the cross-talk between the hormones and cytokines secreted from fat cells and immune cells and to understand the principles of the specific binding of ligands to the receptors.
