Discovering Multiple Pathways to Drug Resistance in Melanoma Cells

In a study published in Nature Communications, researchers from the California Institute of Technology utilized IsoPlexis’ Single-Cell Proteomics and Single-Cell Metabolomics to outline an approach for capturing the diverse range of trajectories that individual cells can take en route to drug resistance.

Understanding Functional Adaptations to Predict Effective Therapeutic Combinations

Cancer cells constantly evolve, regularly adopting new states in response to acute and chronic stimuli, posing a great challenge for treatment, as cells that are initially responsive to pharmacological agents can quickly adopt drug-resistant states through both genetic and non-genetic mechanisms.

Researchers used IsoPlexis’ Single-Cell Proteomics and Single-Cell Metabolomics to show that cancer cell responses to a common stimulus may entail multiple divergent functional pathways while still resulting in the same genomic phenotype.
