Screening of peptides recognizing simple polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons

Author affiliations

Abstract

Peptides that specifically bind to the simplest polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon, naphthalene, were obtained by affinity-based screening using a phage-displayed peptide library. The identified peptide with a β-turn structure showed specific binding to naphthalene present not only on substrates but also in aqueous solutions.
