What are some typical applications of PepSets peptide libraries?
Peptide libraries are used for diverse purposes, from peptide epitope mapping and structure-activity studies, to the search for peptide "drugs". They are ideal for T cell epitope searching, because T cell epitopes are by nature short linear peptides from the primary protein sequence. PepSets are also appropriate for scanning the primary sequence of proteins for linear, or "continuous", antibody-defined epitopes. Where a bioactive sequence is already known, PepSets provide the ideal primary set of analogs for screening in structure-activity relationship (SAR) studies, also known as "Analoging". To discover unique novel bioactive peptides, a PepSet consisting of many altered sequences, with natural or unnatural amino acid replacements, is synthesized and tested. This can result in the definition of highly promising candidate peptide therapeutics, or in the exclusion of classes of inactive peptide analogs from further study.
