Method for preparing molecularly imprinted polymers and uses thereof
Publication date: 2011
Methods for preparation of molecularly imprinted polymers and their use for detection of proteins and/or polypeptides in a sample are disclosed. The methods of preparation are based on selecting from available data bases an amino acid sequence of a protein/polypeptide target molecule; cleaving the sequence in-silico with at least one cleaving agent, producing fragments with known composition; selecting at least one such fragment comprising a unique epitope; preparing a synthetic peptide representing the unique epitope; and preparing a molecularly imprinted polymer comprising specific binding sites for the synthetic peptide. For detection of the target protein in a sample, the same cleaving agent used for the in-silico cleavage is used to cleave the target protein to form the specific peptide fragments to which the MIP is specific.
