High Throughput Peptide Synthesis for Constructing Novel Peptide Microarrays

19 December 2014

More than 1700 glycopeptides and peptides were successfully prepared on a Syro II parallel peptide synthesizer in a high throughput manner. 

 

The research groups of Prof. Blixt and Prof. Jensen at the University of Copenhagen have described a high-throughput O-glycopeptide discovery platform for seromic profiling, using the Syro II parallel peptide synthesizer for high-throughput glycopeptide synthesis where over 1700 O-glycopeptides were synthesized for the construction of novel peptide microarrays.This approach provided multiwell low scale synthesis of peptides and GalNAc-glycopeptides combined with direct printing without prior purification for a facile and economical approach to display hundreds of glycopeptides. Biomarker microarrays are becoming valuable tools for serological screening of disease-associated autoantibodies.

The research for this application note was carried out in the groups of Prof. Ola Blixt and Prof. Knud J. Jensen at the University of Copenhagen.
