Plastic Antibodies, Synthetic Receptors for Biological Macromolecules - Kenneth Shea
Author: K.J. Shea
General methods for the recognition of specific peptide sequences, proteins and related biological macromolecules remain a significant challenge. The talk will describe general protocols for creating synthetic polymer receptors for peptides and proteins with antibody-like affinity for biological macromolecules. These nanoparticles have been found to function in vivo and are now being evaluated for therapeutic applications, in bioprocessing and diagnostics.
