Duolink technology, based on the Proximity Ligation Assay (PLA) is a powerful investigative tool for the detection and visualization of individual proteins, protein-protein/protein-nucleic acid interactions as well as post-translational modifications. The 1000X signal amplification allows for single molecule sensitivity and detection at endogenous levels using fluorescent or optical microscopy techniques. The activation status of specific proteins or signaling pathways can be assessed in established cell lines as well as patient biopsies or xenographs. This seminar will focus on Duolink PLA technology and translational applications of the technique.
