Phage Display

Phage display describes a selection technique in which a library of variants of a peptide or protein are expressed on the outside of phage virions, while the genetic material encoding each variant resides on the inside of the corresponding virion (1-3). This creates a physical linkage between each variant protein sequence and the DNA encoding it, which allows rapid partitioning based on binding affinity to a given target molecule (antibodies, enzymes, cell-surface receptors, etc.) by an in vitro selection process called panning (4). In its simplest form, panning is carried out by incubating a library of phage-displayed peptides with a plate (or bead) coated with the target, washing away the unbound phage, and eluting the specifically bound phage. The eluted phage is then amplified and taken through additional binding/ amplification cycles to enrich the pool in favor of binding sequences. After 3–4 rounds, individual clones are characterized by DNA sequencing and ELISA.

Peptides from Phage Display Library Modulate Gene Expression in Mesenchymal Cells and Potentiate Osteogenesis in Unicortical Bone Defects


Isolating, by biopanning, the phage that binds to bone allows researchers to identify the peptide sequences that stimulate the differentiation of mesenchymal cells and potentiate bone repair.
