Examples

  • Rather than search for the elusive antigen, researchers did "high throughput" screening using thousands of synthetic molecules, called peptoids, that would bind with the antibodies.

    Early steps toward an Alzheimer's blood test

  • His team used laboratory-made molecules called peptoids as antigen surrogates to screen for antibodies specific to Alzheimer's disease.

  • In the new study, scientists at the Scripps Research Institute in Florida, have come up with a new approach by manufacturing thousands of molecules in different shapes - known as peptoids -designed to react with antibodies.

  • His approach will focus on peptoids, a synthetic molecule that will be used to identify the antibodies they want to single out.

  • These self-assembling sheets are made of peptoids, engineered polymers that can flex and fold like proteins while maintaining the robustness of manmade materials.

  • In the study, the team used mixed peptide/peptoid libraries-peptides make up proteins; peptoids are molecules closely related to, but more stable than peptides, making them more convenient for testing-but the method could be applied to any class of compound, according to Kodadek.

  • Better still, peptoids that bind to autoreactive T cells can be identified without knowledge of the specific antigen (molecule triggering the immune attack), providing an unbiased method with which to search for potentially useful compounds.

  • Kodadek and his colleagues created a large collection of peptoids-molecules related to, but more stable than, the peptides that make up proteins.

  • By looking at samples from animal models of a known disease like MS, peptoids that bind to antibodies closely associated with that disease could be recognized, according to the Scripps team.
