Proteome Profiler Human XL Oncology Array Summary

Kit Summary

To detect differences in 84 cancer-related proteins between samples. No specialized equipment is necessary.

*If using a LI-COR, additional reagents and protocol modifications are required.  Refer to protocol.


General Assay Principle

Carefully selected capture antibodies have been spotted in duplicate on nitrocellulose membranes. Cell culture supernates, cell lysates, tissue lysates, serum, plasma, urine, saliva, or human milk are diluted and incubated with the Human XL Oncology Array overnight. The array is washed to remove unbound proteins, followed by incubation with a cocktail of biotinylated detection antibodies. Streptavidin-HRP and chemiluminescent detection reagents are applied, and a signal is produced at each capture spot corresponding to the amount of protein bound. Chemiluminescence is detected in the same manner as a Western blot.

  1. Will the Array identification number stamped on the Array membrane interfere with detection if it is not cut-off before the membrane is blocked?

    • The dye used for printing the Array identification number on the membranes will fluoresce and interfere with the LI-COR detection. It is critical that the number is cut off before beginning the experiment. 

  2. Could you tell us whether this MMP-9 antibody can detect TIMP and MMP-9 complex?

    • We haven't performed a large amount of specificity testing per each spot in the arrays because these are qualitative screening tools. However, we would recommend treating the MMP-9 spot as a "Total MMP-9" detecting both free MMP-9 and MMP-9 in complex. If the MMP-9 spot turns out to be of high interest for the customer's study, they will want to examine this target in more detail with quantitative tools such as ELISA or Luminex.
