Case study

Eight treated cell line samples were compared with 8 control samples. Several proteins were identified as differentially expressed (x-axis) and/or phosphorylated (y-axis). While the left plot provides an overview on expression / phosphorylation differences for all tested proteins in the two sample groups, individual levels are depicted in the plots on the right. The sample status is indicated as C = control or T = treated.

  • additional sample types on request

 

Sample-to-result service

Within our analysis service, we will not only carry out the microarray experiments but also support you with a suggestion for an appropriate microarray study design as well as with the sample selection process in order to address your scientific question in the optimal way. Within 3-4 weeks after receipt of your samples you will receive a customised study report including a statistical analysis.

Our analysis service includes:

  • definition of an appropriate study design
  • sample preparation
  • protein extraction
  • protein concentration measurements
  • protein quality control
  • sample labelling
  • sample purification
  • incubation of the samples on antibody microarrays
  • microarray scanning
  • raw data acquisition
  • data normalisation
  • data analysis including cluster analysis
  • statistical testing for differentially abundant proteins
  • statistical testing for differentially phosphorylated proteins
  • comprehensive study report

New article | Anti-cancer activity and mechanism of action of metformin in endometrial cancer cells

| March 2021 | Scientists at Heidelberg University Hospital characterized the protein profile response of an endometrial cell line to Metformin treatment and hyperinsulinemia  with our scioDiscover platform:

"The presented data helps identify potential targets affected by metformin treatment in EC and allows for a better understanding of the mechanism of action of the biguanide drug’s anti-cancer activity.

With the presented data, we contribute to a better understanding of the anti-cancer activity of metformin as well as its underlying mechanism of action in EC cells."

New article | Selective elimination of immunosuppressive T cells in patients with multiple myeloma

| Feb 2021 | Scientists at Heidelberg University Hospital used our scioCD  platform to profile CD8+SLAMF7+ cell cultures:

"High throughput screening of 351 different cytokines and immune proteins in the supernatants of the T cells cultures revealed strong upregulation of IL-6, IL-8, both vital survival factors for myeloma cells, and CXCL5, a chemokine that could enhance the frequency of CD4 Treg, in the cultures containing CD8+SLAMF7+ cells. IL-2 and IL-5 were upregulated in the control cultures without CD8+SLAMF7+ T cells, highlighting a more activated state in the control group and suggestion IL-6 and IL-8 as potential effector cytokines for the suppressive CD8+SLAMF7+ T cells."

New article | Analysis of the Differential Gene and Protein Expression Profiles of Corneal Epithelial Cells Stimulated with Alternating Current Electric Fields

| Feb 2021 | Scientists at Rostock University Medical Center used our scioCD  platform to Corneal Epithelial Cells stimulated with Alternating Current Electric Fields:

"Analysis of the protein array data revealed that the treatment of cells with AC EFs altered the expression of various protein products ... revealed activation of various diverse cellular signaling pathways in which TNF, MAPK, IL17, and PI3K-Akt signaling pathways were significantly impacted ..."

New article | BET-Inhibitor I-BET762 and PARP-Inhibitor Talazoparib Synergy in Small Cell Lung Cancer Cells

| Dec 2020 | Scientists at University of Sassari used our scioPhospho  platform to to analyse the synergy of BET and PARP inhibition in Small Cell Lung Cancer Cells:

"Among the I-BET762-associated and combination-associated differentially expressed proteins, 150 were common to both treatment conditions. ... Ranking I-BET762-associated and combination-associated DEPs by their differential expression revealed CHEK2 and PTEN to be among the top-downregulated proteins, whose deficiencies have been associated with HR defects and increased PARPi sensitivity. "

Testimonials

Rather like working with committed colleagues than with a company, and we got great data out of the project

 Prof. Dr. Andreas Weigert 

Goethe-University Frankfurt, Faculty of Medicine, Institute of Biochemistry I, Frankfurt, Germany

"We were under considerable time pressure to gain comprehensive information about cytokine/chemokine levels in a mouse model of self-resolving inflammation. To add to our misery, we had only a small number of biological replicates to run the analyses. Thankfully, the team at Sciomics were able to come to our rescue by providing a very prompt analysis, without neglecting to properly communicate the procedure, potential caveats and other details. The whole process was a very satisfying experience, rather like working with committed colleagues than with a company, and we got great data out of the project. I do happily recommend working with Sciomics for targeted proteomics analyses."
