New technique can be breakthrough for early cancer diagnosis
September 12, 2007--
Early detection of disease is often critical to how successful
treatment can be. Therefore, the development of new methods of
diagnosis is a hot research field, where every small step is of great
importance. In an article in the latest issue of Molecular &
Cellular Proteomics, Uppsala University researchers describe a
technique that the journal regards as especially interesting.
In 2006 Ola Söderberg and his colleagues at the Department of Genetics
and Pathology devised a new technique, in situ PLA (in situ proximity
ligation assay), that could detect communication between proteins in
cells. These researchers have now refined the method and can now see
how proteins undergo change inside a cell.
