Exploration of the Proteome Demands Innovation

Efficiently Generating Superior Capture Reagents for a Wide Range of Biomolecule Targets

Complete functional exploration of any proteome requires access to comprehensive sets of well-characterized affinity reagents that specifically bind to their respective target proteins with high affinities and in a variety of contexts (e.g., serum, tissues, on and inside of cells).

But the technical challenges are considerable: the proteome consists of multiple closely-related protein variants arising from alternative splicing and post-translational modifications (PTMs), yielding complexity orders of magnitude greater than that of the genome.

Existing antibodies only target a small fraction of the proteome and are difficult to reproduce. There is an urgent need for novel technologies that can efficiently generate reagents for the large number of unaddressed protein targets.
