    ever wanted to see if your favorite detection system reacts with cellulose-bound peptides? Well, chances are given that it is one of the three covered here: TAMRA-dye, luminol turn-over, and FITC

    This work reviews the peptide array technology focusing on technological advancements, oriented immobilization of peptide probes, and some interesting applications. Going along the philosophy of the monography series, we give some general recomendations on methods and instruments. See the following newsletter comments by Tony Fong: Q&A: Raising the Profile of Peptide Arrays for Studying Protein Function, ProteoMonitor, August 13, 2009.

    This work was carried out to adapt "building block" approaches for the generation of phosphopeptides through resine-supported solid-phase peptide synthesis to the spot-technology, which relies on cellulose as support. It compares different coupling strategies for the incorporation of protected phoshoaminoacids into determined positions of synthetic peptides. We find that the use of EEDQ as coupling activator is the most efficient strategy in our comparison.

    This work analyses the predictive potential of microarray-based binding assays. Fluorescent SI-measurements were used to fit a mass-action derived model estimating the observed affinity (equil. diss. const.).

    This work analyses the quantitative potential of measurements derived from peptide macroarray-based immunobinding assays. Chemoluminiscent signal intensity data was confronted with independent "golden stardard" measurements (surface plasmon resonance-based binding assays on a BIAcoreX maschine).
