Spotting Many Different Proteins On Single Cells
Using antibodies and little pieces of DNA, a new technique detects hundreds of different proteins on individual cells. It could be used to study protein variations—on different cells in the same tumor, for example—analyze responses to drugs, and diagnose diseases.
Ralph Weissleder of Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and coworkers developed the technique and demonstrated its ability to identify proteins on cells from patients with lung or skin cancer (Sci. Transl. Med. . . .
