Phage display

History[ edit ] Phage display was first described by George P.

Phage display

What is phage display? Phage display is a selection technique in which a library of variants of a peptide or protein is expressed on the outside of a phage virion, while the genetic material encoding each variant resides on the inside.

This creates a physical linkage between each variant protein sequence and the DNA encoding it, which allows rapid partitioning based on binding affinity to a given target molecule antibodies, enzymes, cell-surface receptors, etc. Biopanning is carried out by incubating the pool of phage-displayed variants with a target of interest that has been immobilized on a plate or bead, washing away unbound phage, and eluting specifically bound phage.

The eluted phage is then amplified in vivo and the process repeated, resulting in stepwise enrichment of the phage pool in favor of the tightest binding sequences. What are the advantages of phage display screening over other antibody development method?

In comparison with hybridoma technology, phage display technology offers great advantages. Hybridoma method is only available in mouse, rat, hamster and guinea pig.

On the other hand, phage display could be used Phage display generate high-affinity monoclonal antibodies from all popular antibody production species, including but not limited to human, mouse, rat, rabbit, chicken, llama, camel, alpaca, cow, dog, sheep, monkey, and shark.

Hybridoma-based monoclonal antibody development can only generate a small number of antibody candidates against a particular immunogen at a time; whereas phage display technology can present the entire antibody repertoire e.

With such a huge pool of potential binders, the chance is much better to use phage display technology to discover antibodies of the desired properties. In addition, using hybridoma technology, it is hard to incorporate an enriching step that can selectively isolate antibodies with the desired functionality.

In most cases, all the hybridoma clones are produced first and then validated one by one. In contrast, phage display technology allows various enriching strategies: In summary, this immune antibody library approach allows collecting almost all antibodies in the animals and isolating the strongest binders from the collection.

Moreover, counter-selection can be easily incorporated. What are the difference among M13, T7, and T4 displaying system? M13 filamentous phage has always been the most popular option and extensively used in various types of research, among many other types of phages.

Unlike T4 and T7, M13 is lysogenic phage which is assembled in the periplasm and secreted out of the bacterial membrane without lysing the host.

Phage display

The multiple capsid proteins on M13 phage allow the comprehensive display choices for a variety of peptides and proteins with distinctive characteristics.

All five capsids have been successfully used for foreign domain display with unique vectors. Bacteriophage T4 is distinct from M13 in many aspects. Larger genome DNA allows larger insertions of foreign proteins.

Both N- and C-terminal insertion are available.

Without membrane secreting process, host toxicity and confirmation changes could be avoided using T4 phage. T7 phages have a shorter lifecycle compared to filamentous phages and lambda phages. The assembly of the progeny phages are in bacterial cytoplasm and released by lysis of cell envelope, therefore there is no size limitation and host toxicity resulting from the secreting process.

In addition, T7 phages are very stable at extreme conditions where other phages could not survive. In order to fuse the corresponding protein to the coat protein properly, an insert must be in the correct reading frame at both ends and contains no in-frame stop codons.

This results in a vanishingly small number of productive clones in M13 cDNA libraries. There are 5 copies of pIII protein on the phage virion.Please use the Direct Query to search by selection of sequence properties or to search for small sequence motives of DNA or protein sequence.; Please use the DNAPLOT Query for larger data sets.

Phage Display George P. Smith* and Valery A. Petrenko Division of Biological Sciences, University of Missouri, Columbia, Missouri Received January 2, (Revised Manuscript Received January 23, ). Phage display of peptides and proteins is a rather useful text containing many recipes and detailed protocols for working with phage.


The manual starts with an introduction by George Smith himself which is rather candid in its honesty and modesty and perhaps a little cutting in its closing remarks.
