ProteomeBinders is a new European consortium aiming to establish a comprehensive resource of well-characterized affinity reagents, including but not limited to antibodies, for analysis of the human proteome. Given the huge diversity of the proteome, the scale of the project is potentially immense but nevertheless feasible in the context of a pan-European or(More)
We describe a method, DNA array to protein array (DAPA), which allows the 'printing' of replicate protein arrays directly from a DNA array template using cell-free protein synthesis. At least 20 copies of a protein array can be obtained from a single DNA array. DAPA eliminates the need for separate protein expression, purification and spotting, and also(More)
In affinity proteomics, specific protein-binding molecules (a.k.a. binders), principally antibodies, are applied as reagents in proteome analysis. In recent years, advances in binder technologies have created the potential for an unprecedented view on protein expression and distribution patterns in plasma, cells and tissues and increasingly on protein(More)
Essential to the ambition of characterising fully the human proteome are systematic and comprehensive collections of specific affinity reagents directed against all human proteins, including splice variants and modifications. Although a large number of affinity reagents are available commercially, their quality is often questionable and only a fraction of(More)
Protein affinity reagents (PARs), most commonly antibodies, are essential reagents for protein characterization in basic research, biotechnology, and diagnostics as well as the fastest growing class of therapeutics. Large numbers of PARs are available commercially; however, their quality is often uncertain. In addition, currently available PARs cover only a(More)
UNLABELLED We have previously described a protein arraying process based on cell free expression from DNA template arrays (DNA Array to Protein Array, DAPA). Here, we have investigated the influence of different array support coatings (Ni-NTA, Epoxy, 3D-Epoxy and Polyethylene glycol methacrylate (PEGMA)). Their optimal combination yields an increased amount(More)
An improved system for cell-free expression of protein arrays based on DNA arrays is presented. Our technology uses an array of DNA constructs for cell-free expression, which acts as a template instructing the generation of the corresponding protein array. Proteins are expressed locally from these templates by a cell-free transcription and translation(More)
Protein arrays are miniaturised and highly parallelised formats of interaction-based functional protein assays. Major bottlenecks in protein microarraying are the limited availability and high cost of purified, functional proteins for immobilisation and the limited stability of immobilised proteins in their functional state. In contrast, protein-coding DNA(More)
We have previously described the 'DNA array to protein array' (DAPA) method for microarraying of proteins expressed by cell-free systems in situ on the array surface. In this technique, a DNA array on one slide acts as the template for generating a protein array on a second slide, mediated by a cell free lysate between the two juxtaposed slides. Here we(More)
In vitro antibody generation technologies have now been available for two decades. Research reagents prepared via phage display are becoming available and several recent studies have demonstrated that these technologies are now sufficiently advanced to facilitate generation of a comprehensive renewable resource of antibodies for any protein encoded by the(More)
