Specific Pathway Panels
Taqman Human Cancer Panel: This panel targets genes related to DNA repair, angiogenesis, cell adhesion, and ECM, as well as genes involved in the cell cycle and apoptosis, and many of the genes encoding kinases and transcription factors that have been found to be differentially expressed in early cancer and metastatic disease. The 624 genes have been validated for pluripotency. Twenty-four endogenous controls are included for normalization. Each chip tests 4 samples.
Taqman Human Inflammation Panel: This panel covers 586 genes that have been studied as targets for a range of inflammatory disease, plus 21 endogenous control genes. Each chip tests 4 samples.
Taqman Mouse Inflammation Panel: This panel covers 632 genes that have been studied as targets for a range of inflammatory diseases, plus 16 endogenous control genes. Each chip tests 4 samples.
Taqman Human Kinome Panel: This panel targets 772 well defined genes for human kinases and provides 56 endogenous control genes for normalization. Genes for the panel were chosen based on primary literature and publications. Each chip tests 3 samples (or one sample in triplicate).
Taqman OpenArray Human Signal Transduction Panel: This panel contains 573 signal transduction-related genes plus 24 endogenous controls for normalization. The JAK-STAT, NFκB, Akt, GPCR, cAMP, and MAP kinase pathways are well represented. Each chip tests 4 samples.
Taqman Stem Cell Panel: This panel targets 609 genes validated for pluripotency, plus 22 endogenous controls for normalization. They use a well-defined set of validated gene expression markers to characterize human embryonic stem (ES) cell identity and assess phenotypic variations between embryonic stem cell isolates. The gene content of this OpenArray® plate resulted directly from the work of the I.S.C.I consortium and characterization of human embryonic stem cell lines by the International Stem Cell Initiative. Each chip tests 4 samples.
