What is a phage or bacteriophage?
Phages are viruses that infect bacterial cells. There are several types of phages that have been used as vehicles for phage display including Ff filamentous phage, Lambda and T7. In phage display, the bacteriophages are used to construct different phage libraries as peptide libraries or antibody library
History of phage display
Phage display technology was first introduced in 1985 by George Smith. After that many advantages have been introduced including the way to construct a phage library like antibody library to select phage display antibodies.
Advantages of phage display
Phage display is a system for large scale study and selection of proteins, peptide and antibodies based on their binding affinity and specificity. One advantage of phage display is the enormous diversity of variant proteins that can be represented in a phage library. Phage display provides a means of rapidly screening large numbers of proteins against potential binding partners.

Peptide libraries

Review of phage display peptide libraries

Phage display peptide libraries  consist in expressing  variants of a peptide expressed on the outside of a bacteriophage, while the genetic material encoding each variant is carrying on the inside of the phage.

 

Phage display peptide libraries services

We provide service of screening of peptide library based on phage display system. Several types of peptide libraries are available including 10-mer phage display peptide library, 16-mer phage display peptide library and 20-mer phage display peptide library. We can perform the screening using in-house made peptide library or commercially available peptide library. In addition, we have pIII and pVIII fused peptide libraries.
