Antibacterial PNA Targeting Other mRNA Development

Antibacterial PNA Targeting Other mRNA Development

In addition to essential mRNA and rRNA, PNA oligomers can also be used for antibacterial testing against other bacterial targets (including non-essential genes). As an industry leader in professional customization services, Creative Peptides has an advanced antibacterial PNA development system, and provides a variety of excellent antibacterial PNA testing services for the sequence of non-essential genes.

Other mRNA Targets

In recent years, many PNA targets have been discovered and successfully verified in bacteria. The main PNA target in PNA antibacterial applications is the mRNA of essential genes. It is important to find PNA sensitive targets that are present in bacteria but not in mammalian cells. In contrast to other small molecule compounds, antisense PNA can target almost any bacterial RNA, providing unlimited options, so PNA can be used for test identification. Here are some antibacterial PNAs that have been successfully verified to target other mRNAs.

Label-Free Assays for Kinase Activity

• High success rate. With the continuous use of antibiotics, more and more bacteria become resistant to them. PNA has obviously different structure and biological activity characteristics, so it can be better applied to antibacterial drugs. We use advanced PNA synthesis and modification technology to provide the best PNA development services and greatly increase the success rate.
