Abstract (englisch):
Microarrays are an important tool in modern research that allow the rapid screening of many different interactions simultaneously. Peptide arrays, which bear different peptides arranged in separate spots, permit high-throughput screening to investigate linear and cyclic binding sites. To study conformational or discontinuous binding sites, protein arrays are the major choice. However, the tremendous costs for the generation of high-density protein arrays of high purity restrict progress in protein research. Therefore, peptide-based arrays, which can mimic assembled peptide structures, have an enormous potential. Here, a method is presented to create such structures in the array format as an alternative to protein arrays. A trifunctional linker is developed with an azide, a protected alkyne, and a carboxyl group, which can react with two or three different peptides. Due to the spatial proximity, the peptides interact and can form an assembled peptide structure. As a proof of concept, assembled peptide structures are demonstrated on beads and on a polymer surface and the approach can be validated via matrix-assisted laser desorption/i ... mehr
