Epitope Mapping is a vital process that helps to identify and locate the specific regions on an antigen that bind to antibodies. This process plays a crucial role in developing targeted therapies and vaccines for various diseases. HDX-MS is a powerful technique that utilizes hydrogen-deuterium exchange to study the protein-protein interaction, protein folding, and protein-ligand binding.
Creative Proteomics offers epitope mapping services using HDX-MS technology, which helps to determine the precise location of antigenic determinants.
HDX-MS epitope mapping is a unique method that allows for the precise identification of antigenic determinants. This process involves the exchange of hydrogen atoms with deuterium atoms in the protein sample. By analyzing the exchange of hydrogen and deuterium, we can determine the rate at which different regions of the protein are exposed to solvent. Regions that are involved in protein-protein interactions are protected from solvent exchange, whereas flexible regions are more exposed to solvent exchange. The data obtained from the HDX-MS experiments can be used to construct a map of the protein that identifies the antigenic determinants.
Creative Proteomics is a leading service provider in the field of molecular interactions research, offering a range of high-quality services for drug discovery and development.
