Current advances in highly multiplexed antibody-based single-cell proteomic measurements
Huang, L., Michael, S.A., Chen, Y. et al.Single-cell measurements have played a critical role in revealing the complex signaling dynamics and heterogeneity present in cells, but there is still much to learn. Measuring samples from bulk populations of cells often masks the information and dynamics present in subsets of cells. Common single-cell protein studies rely on fluorescent microscopy and flow cytometry but are limited in multiplexing ability owing to spectral overlap. Recently, technology advancements in single-cell proteomics have allowed highly multiplexed measurement of multiple parameters simultaneously by using barcoded microfluidic enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays and mass cytometry techniques. In this review, we will describe recent work around multiparameter single-cell protein measurements and critically analyze the techniques.
