Signaling pathways often involve changes in the phosphorylation states of proteins Antibodies may recognize specific phosphorylation states of proteins Phospho-specific antibody Standard antibody antibody to unphosphorylated protein Antibodies can recognize the phosphorylation state of a protein Tyrosine hydroxylase antibodies A VEGF receptor antibody Decursin inhibits retinal neovascularization via suppression of VEGFR-2 activation.
