Tumor Signaling 360 Panel
Helping Your Research
As therapeutics that target tumor signaling evolve, a greater understanding of tumor signaling is required as well as a better understanding of the interactions of tumor cells with the tissue milieu. The Tumor Signaling 360 Panel is intended to play this exact role, enabling deeper profiling of the tumor that is complete, yet focused on signaling pathways of interest for targeted therapeutic development. Covering hundreds of genes involved in tumorigenesis, metastasis, and inflammation, the nCounter Tumor Signaling 360 Panel offers a holistic view of the biology of the tumor, microenvironment, and immune response with an emphasis on dysfunctional cell signaling in cancer. It offers a holistic view of the biology of the tumor, microenvironment, and immune response with an emphasis on dysfunctional cell signaling in cancer.
- Profile 40+ pathways involved in tumor biology, immune evasion, and remodeling of the microenvironment.
- Identify targets for novel therapeutics
- Understand the mechanism of action of targeted therapies
- Determine the extent of anti-tumor immune response with the Tumor Inflammation Signature
- Quantify the presence and relative abundance of 14 different immune cell types
Inspired by systems biology approaches to cancer research, NanoString’s 360 Series Panel Collection gives you a 360° view of gene expression by combining carefully-curated content involved in the biology of the tumor, microenvironment, and the immune response into a single holistic assay. Each panel contains the 18-gene Tumor Inflammation Signature (TIS) that measures a peripherally-suppressed, adaptive immune response and has been shown to correlate with response to checkpoint inhibitors.
How it Works
The nCounter 360 series of cancer gene expression panels have been developed to comprehensively profile the tumor, immune response, and microenvironment. Genes included in the Tumor Signaling 360 Panel are organized and linked to various advanced analysis modules to allow for efficient analysis of cell signaling pathways.
Advanced Analysis Modules available for Tumor Signaling 360:
- Quality Control
- Individual Pathway Analysis
- Cell Profiling
- Differential Expression
- Gene Set Analysis
- Built-in compatibility for Panel-Plus and Protein Analysis

The Tumor Inflammation Signature includes 18 functional genes known to be associated with response to PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitors.
Includes four areas of Immune Biology: IFN-ү-responsive genes related to antigen presentation, chemokine expression, cytotoxic activity, and adaptive immune resistance genes.
The tumor inflammation gene expression signature highlights the complex biology of the host immune microenvironment.

360 Series Product Comparison
Fully-annotated gene lists in Excel format are available for each of the 360 Panels. The table below compares the biology coverage of the 360 Panels across the tumor, microenvironment, and the immune response to that of the PanCancer Panels Collection.
Spatial transcriptomics and proteomics technologies for deconvoluting the tumor microenvironment.
The tumor microenvironment (TME) harbors heterogeneous contents and plays critical roles in tumorigenesis, metastasis, and drug resistance. Therefore, the deconvolution of the TME becomes increasingly essential to every aspect of cancer research and treatment.
Hedgehog transcriptional effector GLI mediates mTOR-Induced PD-L1 expression in gastric cancer organoids.
Tumors evade immune surveillance by expressing Programmed Death-Ligand 1 (PD-L1), subsequently inhibiting CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocyte function. Response of gastric cancer to immunotherapy is relatively low.
Models that combine transcriptomic with spatial protein information exceed the predictive value for either single modality.
Immunotherapy has reshaped the field of cancer therapeutics but the population that benefits are small in many tumor types, warranting a companion diagnostic test. While immunohistochemistry (IHC) for programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) or mismatch repair (MMR) and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for microsatellite instability (MSI) are the only approved companion diagnostics others are under consideration.
