A DNA-binding peptide from a phage display library.

A DNA-binding peptide was selected from a random peptide phage display library. For competitive elution using the DNA methyltransferase M.TaqI in the selection step, a biotin-labeled duplex oligodeoxyribonucleotide containing the 5'-TCGA-3' recognition sequence of M.TaqI was employed. Nine of ten phages selected were found to have the same deduced amino… CONTINUE READING
