Microarray Technology for The Analysis Of The Secretome

A newly published editorial offers a comprehensive overview of the different approaches applied to the study the secretome, the subset of proteins secreted by a particular organism. Scientists are increasingly targeting this complex and homogenous collection of proteins with the hope to uncover new biochemical pathways and to identify new therapeutic and diagnostic targets. While … Continued

Protein Microarrays on the Brink?

Microarray technology was first exploited with genomic analysis of DNA sequences.  This technology still forms a robust platform for biomarker discovery and comparative genomics. However, while genomics sheds light on the biological potential, a recent review in Science Signaling  points out that  “protein does the heavy lifting in the cell, and neither DNA nor RNA says much … Continued
