Low-affinity extracellular protein interactions are critical for cellular recognition processes, but are not generally detected by methods that can be applied in a high-throughput manner. This unit describes a protein microarray platform that significantly improves the throughput of assays capable of detecting transient extracellular protein interactions. These methodological improvements now permit screening for novel extracellular receptor-ligand interactions on a genome-wide scale. Curr. Protoc.
