Drug discovery is the approach of finding an agent with a particular biological action that is anticipated to have therapeutic utility. Typically a drug target is a key molecule involved in a particular metabolic or signaling pathway that is specific to a disease condition or pathology, or to the infectivity or survival of a microbial pathogen.
Immunome protein array has 1,631 full-length, correctly folded, and functional human proteins. To our knowledge this is the only protein array in the world where every protein is known to be correctly folded. The unique BCCP tag technology ensures that only correctly folded, functional and full-length proteins are presented on the array, making Immunome an ideal drug discovery tool. Immunome allows identification of new drug targets and their mechanisms of action.
