Focus Biomolecules offers a diverse and expanding portfolio of small molecule reagents for the study of various components and pathways related to cellular metabolism. We also offer the FCCC Cellular Metabolism Library, a cutting edge screening tool for the study of these pathways and their role in human disease.
Daily function of cells involves many biochemical pathways that continuously monitor and balance critical cellular components. Disruption of cellular metabolism can lead to diseases that affect most systems in the body. A hallmark of cancer, for example, is a restructuring of normal cellular metabolism to meet the energetic and stress demands inherent in rapid cell growth. Diseases that involve inborn errors of metabolism (IEM’s) manifest in a variety of ways and can hugely impact the daily lives of those affected.
