Energy metabolism drives cell function in health and disease. The landscape of therapeutic discovery is rapidly evolving, and cellular metabolism has emerged as the critical driver of a range of common diseases. Cell biology functions as a network of signaling, pathways, and checkpoints — with cellular metabolism as a central orchestrator to fuel many cellular processes.
The development of safe and effective drugs requires an understanding of genes, proteins, and pathways that may be key intermediates and potential candidates for drug target intervention. Cellular processes are dynamic, and metabolic programs are the upstream determinants of cellular outcomes. Identification and validation of potential drug targets requires a comprehensive view of those upstream drivers to modulate cell response and safely and effectively intervene.
Agilent Seahorse XF technology provides functional, live-cell metabolic measurements for a more direct measure and a deeper understanding of cellular processes. In this training webinar, you will learn about the fundamentals of Agilent Seahorse XF technology, the typical XF assay workflow, the Agilent XF Assay Learning Center resource, and the required and recommended materials to perform a successful XF assay.
