Being the leading manufacturer of synthetic peptides, Creative Peptides recently announced the launch of peptide nucleic acid synthesis service for both academic and industrial community on April 26, 2018, adding to its already wide-ranged services like custom peptide synthesis, neoantigen peptides vaccine, cell penetrating peptides as well as isotope labeled peptides synthesis.
Peptide nucleic acid, or alternatively referred to as PNA, is an analogue of oligonucleotide in which sugar-phosphate backbone has been replaced by a polyamide chain. In some cases, PNA could be used as conventional DNA/RNA. Different from DNA, PNAs are neutral in charge. In this reason, they are more stable chemically and resistant to DNases and proteases. Other advantages of PNA include: high sequence specificity, binding activity and lower salt sensitivity.
“PNAs have been widely used in molecular diagnostics and therapeutics, such as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) detection and antisense therapy,” says Dr. Robert Martinez, Head of Creative Peptides’ synthesis businesses.
“Creative Peptides offers synthesis service of PNA and its analog tailored to customer’s needs. Approaches like automated solid-phase methods, which is also used in DNA and RNA oligonucleotide synthesis, are employed,” added Dr. Robert Martinez. “We are highly experienced in this area. More than ten years’ of engagement and our strong scientific team allow us to offer highest level of quality control over each and every product specifically designated by our clients.”
Till now, a number of PNA related products such as Gamma PNA and Fmoc Monomers are available at Creative Peptides. They could possibly be applied in the following areas:
• Microarrays and biosensors
• PNA FISH Probes
• PCR Blockers
• PNA miRNA Inhibitors
