  1. 1. Array-based Autoantibody Profiling and Epitope Mapping

    Author : Arash Zandian; Peter Nilsson; Jochen M. Schwenk; Maja Neiman; Morten Nielsen; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; antibody; antigens; peptide; epitope mapping; autoimmunity; autoantibodies; microarrays; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : Antibodies are a class of proteins that are made by the immune system to recognize harmful organisms and molecules. Their exceptional capability of specifically recognizing molecules has been investigated for over a century and information thereof has been utilized for a variety of applications including vaccine and generation of therapeutic antibodies.

  2. 2. Epitope mapping of antibodies towards human protein targets

    Author : Barbara Hjelm; Mathias Uhlén; Larry Gold; KTH; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; antibody; antibody validation; biomarker; epitope mapping; peptide array; proteomics; RBM3; staphylococcal surface display;

    Abstract : This thesis, based on five research papers, presents results from development and evaluation ofmethods for identifying the interaction site of antibodies on their antigens and the functional investigation of these in different assays. As antibodies have proven to be invaluable tools in diagnostics, therapy and basic research, the demand of characterizing these binding molecules has increased. READ MORE

  3. 3. Utilizing Solid Phase Cloning, Surface Display And Epitope Information for Antibody Generation and Characterization
