Protein/Peptide mass spectrometry (MS) is an enabling technology that is ideally suited for precision diagnostics, due to its quantitative measurements that can be multiplexed and its ability to directly identify proteoforms. As a result, interest on the widespread implementation of quantitative...

TGFβ is a cytokine with many, often paradoxical, roles in cancer biology. Acting as a tumor suppressor, TGFβ exerts negative control on epithelial cell proliferation - a function that tumor cells must overcome in order to progress to malignant disease. On the other hand, TGFβ also acts as a pro-...
