Virtual laboratories in Molecular and Cell Biology - Intracellular signalling
A virtual laboratory which allows users to analyse intracellular signalling pathways. The programme allows the student to stimulate cells for different periods of time and analyse phosphorylation/activation of kinases in the signalling pathways, using SDS-PAGE and immunoblotting. Use of different cell types (dominant-negative mutants) and pull-down assays allows them to derive the hierarchy in the signalling pathways. The programme first introduces the theory behind the techniques. It then takes
