How Does It Work? | Aptamers

Nucleic acids have long been regarded as biological compounds for storing and transferring information. However, their functionalities are far more diverse than this – ranging from gene regulation to enzymatic catalysis. One type of unconventional nucleic acid is the aptamer. Aptamers are short, single stranded nucleic acids that fold into highly specific structures. They bind …Read More >

How Does It Work? | Peptibodies

#Research has explored the ways to extend the half-life of peptide drugs. One innovative way to achieve this is by fusing #therapeutic peptides to the Fc region of an antibody to create what is known as a peptibody. When the peptibody is naturally taken up by cells it binds to an Fc (antibody) receptor within …Read More >
