Reverse Phase Protein Arrays and Drug Discovery
Reverse Phase Protein Arrays (RPPA) represent a sensitive antibody-based proteomic approach, which enables simultaneous quantification of the abundance of multiple proteins and posttranslational modifications across multiple samples. Here, we provide protocols for RPPA performed on two distinct protein-binding substrates associated with two most commonly used RPPA platform technologies. We compare and contrast the respective advantages and limitations of each platform within the context of drug discovery applications.
