Most certainly. These techniques are applicable across a variety of different stem cells and differentiation protocols. All cells are secreting protein all of the time and it’s just a matter of using these methodologies to identify particular proteins of interest. From that point, for you can build secretory signatures across the differentiation time course of your stem cell of interest.
