Abstract

Introduction: Proteomic profiling plays an important role in the exploration of cancer from molecular mechanisms to clinical diagnosis and treatment. In recent years, the advent of new technologies has promoted oncoproteomics from the initial global style to a refined single-cell level. Areas Covered: Among them, the development of microfluidic devices, the improvement of liquid mass spectrometry in accuracy and trace sample handling processes, and the emergence of protein sequencing have contributed to the oncoproteomic analysis at the single-cell level. Expert Opinion: The proteomic analysis at the global level and the single-cell level gives different perspectives while combining them can reveal more comprehensive oncoproteomics and help cancer research and treatment strategies.
