Abstract

Low performance of actively targeted nanomedicines required revision of the traditional drug targeting paradigm and stimulated the development of novel phage-programmed, self-navigating drug delivery vehicles. In the proposed smart vehicles, targeting peptides, selected from phage libraries using traditional principles of affinity selection, are substituted for phage proteins discovered through combinatorial avidity selection. Here, we substantiate the potential of combinatorial avidity selection using landscape phage in the discovery of Short Linear Motifs (SLiMs) and their partner domains. We proved an algorithm for analysis of phage populations evolved through multistage screening of landscape phage libraries against the MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cell line. The suggested combinatorial avidity selection model proposes a multistage accumulation of Elementary Binding Units (EBU), or Core Motifs (CorMs), in landscape phage fusion peptides, serving as evolutionary initiators for formation of SLiMs. Combinatorial selection has the potential to harness directed molecular evolution to create novel smart materials with diverse novel, emergent properties.
