A Genetic Engineering Method for the Production of Peptide Therapeutics

Description:

Novel peptide therapeutics which specifically target to and kill certain types of  cancer cells are provided. Also an overall method for the synthesis of small, bioactive peptide therapeutics is developed using a primer-based gene synthesis approach coupled with E. Coli-based heterologous protein expression and purification. The genetic engineering method could decrease the cost of producing the novel peptide therapeutics as well as provide a method for building a peptide therapeutic library for further screening.
