A team from Memorial Sloan-Kettering in the US has developed a method using amino acid precursors used to track cell signaling.

A new technique for determining the origin of intracellular and secreted proteins within multicellular environments has recently been developed by researchers from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre in the US working alongside a team from Germany.

Known as cell type specific labeling using amino acid precursors, this method, conceived by Nicholas Gautier, Martin Miller, and their team, takes advantage o
