Protein microarrays can be classified into two broad categories, forward phase protein microarrays and reverse phase protein microarrays, according to the immobilized molecules (antigen or antibody). With so-called forward phase protein microarrays, one protein sample is screened against multiple reagents. The capture regent, usually an antibody, is first affixed to the slide surface. The immobilized antibody is then be used to capture antigens it recognizes when a test sample is spread over the array. vs, Shufang Liang, Protein Microarrays in Proteome-wide Applications.
Journal of Proteomics & Bioinformatics from OMICS Group published best research and peer-review articles related to microarray and its applications in the field of proteomics to diagnose diseases.
