Brain-homing peptide (PEPC7) (ID# 7697)
N/A nM (reported value)
Selection and in vivo imaging performed in mice.
NA If the oligo is a known aptamer sequence: For binding studies, perform a refolding protocol to ensure proper function (i.e. binding to antigen or target). Refer to the aptamer reference source for the appropriate refolding parameters and binding conditions. Note: it is unknown whether aptamer functions properly without refolding.
This peptide is capable of penetrating the blood brain barrier and ushering through the attached bacteriophage.
