Peptide arrays represent a powerful research tool, especially for the development of medical applications to screen peptides for the replacement of animal-derived proteins. This minireview focuses on the applicability of cellulose-bound peptide arrays to assay peptide- cell interactions. Moreover, the successful combination of peptide array and bioinformatics to overcome the limitation of library size in array-type screenings is reviewed.
Keywords: Cell assay, cell adhesion, cell proliferation, cell specificity, bioinformatics, Peptide array, animal-derived proteins, cellulose-bound peptide arrays
