Exhaustive Search of the Receptor Ligands by the CyCLOPS (Cytometry Cell-Labeling Operable Phage Screening) Technique
Effective and versatile screening of the peptide ligands capable of selectively binding to diverse receptors is in high demand for the state-of-the-art technologies in life sciences, including probing of specificity of the cell surface receptors and drug development. Complex microenvironment and structure of the surface receptors significantly reduce the possibility to determine their specificity, especially when in vitro conditions are utilized. Previously, we designed a publicly available platform for the ultra-high-throughput screening (uHTS) of the specificity of surface-exposed receptors of the living eukaryotic cells, which was done by consolidating the phage display and flow cytometry techniques. Here, we significantly improved this methodology and designed the fADL-1e-based phage vectors that do not require a helper hyperphage for the virion assembly. The enhanced screening procedure was tested on soluble human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class II molecules and transgenic antigen-specific B cells that express recombinant lymphoid B-cell receptor (BCR). Our data suggest that the improved vector system may be successfully used for the comprehensive search of the receptor ligands in either cell-based or surface-immobilized assays.
