Microchip platforms for multiplex single-cell functional proteomics with applications to immunology and cancer research

, : Microchip platforms for multiplex single-cell functional proteomics with applications to immunology and cancer research. Genome Medicine 5(8): 75-75

Single-cell functional proteomics assays can connect genomic information to biological function through quantitative and multiplex protein measurements. Tools for single-cell proteomics have developed rapidly over the past 5 years and are providing approaches for directly elucidating phosphoprotein signaling networks in cancer cells or for capturing high-resolution snapshots of immune system function in patients with various disease conditions. We discuss advances in single-cell proteomics platforms, with an emphasis on microchip methods. These methods can provide a direct correlation of morphological, functional and molecular signatures at the single-cell level. We also provide examples of how those platforms are being applied to both fundamental biology and clinical studies, focusing on immune-system monitoring and phosphoprotein signaling networks in cancer.

Antisense oligodeoxynucleotide to the delta opioid receptor delineates opioid receptor subtypes. Prior work in our laboratory has identified putative subtypes of delta (delta-cx-1, delta-cx-2, delta-ncx-1, delta-ncx-2) and kappa-2 (kappa-2a and kappa-2b) receptors. Previous studies showed that chronic (three day) i.c.v. administration of anti...
