  • Publication number: 20160280747
    Abstract: The invention relates to the production of novel proteins exhibiting bonding activity for certain ligands, the so-called anticalins. To this end, the structure of peptides of the lipocalin family is modified by amino acid replacement in their natural ligand binding pocket using generic engineering methods. A like immunoglobulin, the anticalin thus obtained can be used to identify or bond molecular structures.
