Sequence Directed Design of Recognition Peptides
The intriguing properties of peptides coded by the non coding DNA strand (anti-sense peptides) have stimulated a number of investigations in the past few years aimed at elucidation of their biological significance and evaluation of their potential use. In several systems tested, anti-sense peptides were able to bind with relatively high affinity and specificity to the corresponding sense peptide, with rather profound implications for use in biotechnology. In an attempt to gain a better understanding of the phenomena, our attention has been focused on the possibility of re-creating peptides with anti-sense properties starting from amino acid sequence informations.
