Cell Surface Profiling Technique Could Yield Cancer Blood Test
Early Cancer Detection
A chemical profiling technique that has potential for detecting the onset of cancer at the cellular level has been developed by scientists with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California at Berkeley.
In a paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) that is now on-line, a team of researchers, led by chemist Carolyn Bertozzi, has reported a technique for rapidly profiling O-linked glycoproteins in living animals. Changes in O-linked protein glycosylation
