Screening of SMG7-Binding Peptides by Combination of Phage Display and Docking Simulation Analysis
Abstract:We screened SMG7-binding peptides with phage display and docking simulation analysis. Although a consensus motif was absent in the phage display-derived candidates, we succeeded to find a peptide CDDRPPKSC, which can bind specifically to SMG7. We conclude that docking simulation helps to find high-affinity peptides efficiently, even if the phage display-screened candidates lack a consensus region.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
