Cell Penetrating Peptides in Cancer Therapy
- Enhanced Tumor Delivery of RNAi Polyplexes by Histidine-rich Peptide Carriers

Conducting research in cancer therapeutics? Have you considered using cell/tumor penetrating peptides? Join us for a webinar by Dr. James Mixson and learn about the most recent findings on the effects of cell penetrating peptides in cancer therapy. The talk will focus on enhanced tumor delivery of RNAi polyplexes by histidine-rich peptide carriers.

Examining the components of your peptide sample with AccuPep QC

Do you really know what components are in your lyophilized powder sample other than your desired peptide? Do you still think peptide purity is defined as the ratio between your desired peptide weight and the peptide powder weight? In this webinar, we will describe the major components or contaminants in your peptide samples, as well as the analytical tools that can help identify them.

Peptide libraries: applications, design options and considerations

Does your research involve peptides, and do you often find yourself purchasing different combinations over and over for your experiments? Peptide libraries can vastly decrease screening time and research accuracy by providing hundreds of peptides in parallel. As a result, they become an invaluable tool for many research applications: from development of cell-based assays, to vaccine design and epitope discovery. In this webinar, we will describe the fundamentals of peptide libraries and how they can be incorporated into your research. We will also discuss the different peptide library services that GenScript offers, as well as typical issues and considerations when designing your library.

Peptide design strategy: basics, optimization, and application

Is your peptide sequence optimally designed for your unique research application? Peptide design effects the overall stability and usability of your peptide in experiments, as well as the turnaround time for your custom peptide. Is this session, we will review the basics of peptide design strategy including sequence design, modification selection, and purity choice. Case studies, best practices, and design tools will be introduced. In addition, we will explore specific trends in peptide design as it applies to research applications including drug discovery, drug delivery, structural biology, and biomaterials.

Avoiding peptide assay failure: hidden problems and solutions

Are your peptide-based enzyme, cellular, or tissue assays failing? Is your peptide-based assay data inconsistent or non-existent? The best planned peptide assays can fail if no consideration is given to the hidden intrinsic features of custom synthesized peptides which can cause aberrant cell growth and proliferation, variations in peptide bioactivity, and overall inconsistencies in your resulting data. This webinar will cover key aspects of peptide sequence design, peptide handling, assay preparation, and assay design, as related to the intrinsic properties of custom peptides. Case studies will be presented, and best practices will be provided for avoiding the pitfalls of custom peptide design and assay planning that can cause experimental failure.
