Phage display selection of peptides that target calcium-binding proteins.

Phage display allows to rapidly identify peptide sequences with binding affinity towards target proteins, for example, calcium-binding proteins (CBPs). Phage technology allows screening of 10(9) or more independent peptide sequences and can identify CBP binding peptides within 2 weeks. Adjusting of screening conditions allows selecting CBPs binding peptides that are either calcium-dependent or independent. Obtained peptide sequences can be used to identify CBP target proteins based on sequence homology or to quickly obtain peptide-based CBP inhibitors to modulate CBP-target interactions. The protocol described here uses a commercially available phage display library, in which random 12-mer peptides are displayed on filamentous M13 phages. The library was screened against the calcium-binding protein S100B.
