Patient-derived xenograft (PDX) models are the future of personalized cancer therapy. Professional researchers of CD BioGlyco are dedicated to N-glycoproteomics analysis in PDX models, providing scientific help to our clients in developing tumor and cancer therapies. We look forward to being your competent research assistant in your glycoproteomics research.
PDX provides the most translational preclinical model for efficacy screening in cancer drug development. PDX models have the characteristic of being derived directly from patient tumors, and they can generate samples that are authentic to the host tumor. Their ability to accurately replicate tumor growth, tumor cells diversity, and tumor progression including metastatic potential reflect the heterogeneity and diversity of the human patient population.
Proteins of the cell membrane and extracellular matrix are usually N-glycosylated and can be secreted or shed into the extracellular environment. Therefore, N-glycopeptide-based enrichment can be a useful strategy for detecting tissue leakage proteins in serum. Recently, a workflow using clinically relevant PDX and N-glycopeptide enrichment was developed, which can easily identify "human-unique" proteins in mouse serum backgrounds, thus overcoming the limitations relevant to proteomics-based biomarker discovery. This strategy allowed researchers to identify potentially novel tumor-associated proteins.
