Cancer Biomarker Discovery: Lectin-Based Strategies Targeting Glycoproteins

Received21 May 2012
Accepted21 May 2012

Abstract

Biomarker discovery can identify molecular markers in various cancers that can be used for detection, screening, diagnosis, and monitoring of disease progression. Lectin-affinity is a technique that can be used for the enrichment of glycoproteins from a complex sample, facilitating the discovery of novel cancer biomarkers associated with a disease state.
