Proteins are notoriously and beautifully individual molecules. They are a key element in modern drug discovery either as drug targets or as drugs in their own right (biologics). At Peak Proteins we are able to design (engineer) proteins using bioinformatics and existing protein structural information in order to make them more amenable to different types drug discovery approaches. In addition we can express recombinant proteins rapidly and in high yield in E.coli, insect cells and mammalian cells. The proteins are purified and characterised to suit an individual client and the individual project needs.
Furthermore we are able to determine the structures of proteins using X-ray crystallography to enable structure based drug design
