Minireview – Synthesis and Application of Peptide Arrays: Quo Vadis SPOT Technology

chembiochemIn 1992, Ronald Frank published the first seminal paper on simultaneous parallel synthesis of multiple peptides on filter paper. He defined the approach as SPOT synthesis, an easy technique for positionally addressable, parallel chemical synthesis on a membrane support. Here, a basic overview of this technology is presented and a recently published applications are highlighted. At the end, the future of peptide arrays is discussed.  (read more)
