Our TaqMan Gene Expression Assays enable researchers to discover and verify immunological pathways and biomarkers with gold-standard specificity and sensitivity

Immunology is considered a capstone area of biology, pulling from many fields such as molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, development, physiology, medicine, and pathology.  There are many rich sub-disciplines within immunology, from the basic characterization of immune cells and the molecules they use to fight infections, to clinical immunology dealing with autoimmune diseases.  An emerging area of medical research is immunotherapy, where immune system components are used to treat disease.  The treatment of cancer using immunological approaches is known as immuno-oncology.

Signaling pathways are central to immunology.  Some of the most famous signaling pathways are active in cells of the immune system, such as T-cell receptor, interferon-gamma, tumor necrosis factor, and complement signaling pathways.  Measuring the expression of signaling pathway constituents is a key method for characterizing the response of immune cells to experimental treatments.  Applied Biosystems TaqMan Gene Expression Assays enable researchers to reliably detect and quantitate the expression levels of common immunology biomarkers in addition to novel biomarkers identified in high-throughput transcriptomic studies that require verification.
