Development of a Cluster of Differentiation Antibody-Based Protein Microarray
Protein microarrays combine aspects of DNA microarrays and ELISA for the parallel interrogation of a biological sample using a multiplex of protein biomarkers. Here we report the development of a protein microarray consisting of a subset of CD antibodies and CRP. Several preparations (culture supernatant, ascites fluid and purified Ig) of each antibody were used in a forward phase protein microarray. Microarrays were fabricated using a non-contact printer delivering 300 pL (± 30 pL) to specific locations on polyacrylamide gel-based substrates. Following production, microarrays were blocked for non-specific binding and incubated with sera conjugated directly with Cy3. Using CRP as a control biomarker, 12 clinical samples (inflammatory conditions and controls) were interrogated using the protein microarray format and results compared to CRP measured by conventional immunoassay. The data obtained from the microarray correlated with CRP assessed by immunoassay. Subsequently CRP ‘positive’ samples were interrogated for CD antigen expression; which revealed CD25 and CD45RO expression in all samples. Whilst this study focussed on a subset of CD antibodies, it is anticipated that this array could be expanded to include a larger number of CD antibodies and allow screening of sera from multiple conditions in order to identify disease markers.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
