Abstract

Development of novel patient stratification tools for cancer is a challenge that require advanced molecular screening and a detailed understanding of tumour signalling networks. Here, we apply phospho-specific flow cytometry for signal profiling of primary glioblastoma tumours after preservation of single-cell phosphorylation status as a strategy for evaluation of tumour signalling potential and assessment of rapamycin-mediated mTOR inhibition. The method has already enhanced insight into cancers and disorders of the immune system, and our study demonstrate a great potential to improve the understanding of aberrant signalling in glioblastoma and other solid tumours.
