Uses of peptide libraries for T cell assay development
T cell assays have a variety of applications for studying the immunogenicity of proteins or peptide in vitro – from measuring proliferation as a result of clonal expansion, to assessing the presence of memory cells. These assays have facilitated therapeutics and diagnostics research for a variety of diseases such as:
- Cancer research: peptide libraries have facilitated identification of potential cancer immunotherapies
- Infectious diseases: epitope screening has accelerated the development of targeted therapeutics
- HIV: development of experimental vaccines for the treatment of diseases that target the immune system
Peptide libraries can simplify the development and optimization of T cell assays by providing multiple combinations of epitopes. To help you design your library, GenScript also provides a variety of online peptide library design tools to take the guesswork out of peptide library planning.
