Pronota Shows Proof of Concept for Next-Gen Sequencing-Based Protein Biomarker Discovery Platform | GenomeWeb

By Adam Bonislawski

Belgian protein biomarker firm Pronota announced recently that it has successfully completed a proof of concept study for a diagnostic platform employing next-generation sequencing in the identification and quantification of proteins.

The study combined the use of aptamers — short, selectively binding oligonucleotide sequences — with NGS technology, binding the aptamers to target proteins and then sequencing the protein-bound aptamers to quantify the proteins.
