Choose ProMix™, the smarter peptide pool for smart immunology

ProMix™ peptide pools from thinkpeptides consist of a select number of peptides representing the key immunodominant epitopes from a specific protein or pathogen, providing a comprehensive picture of the T cell response. Peptide selection is based on well-established and published epitopes with a wide range of HLA restrictions covering the most relevant HLA types in the population.

Unlike peptide pools of protein spanning overlapping peptide libraries, ProMix™ pools allow for a much greater control and purity of its constituent peptide components and avoid overloading cell cultures with large numbers of irrelevant non-responding peptides that can contribute excessive contaminants from peptide synthesis processes.

Key advantages of ProMixes™:

  • ProMix™ peptide pools use well characterized epitopes to provide a representative picture of the T cell response against a protein or disease.
  • Smaller numbers of peptides in each pool are designed to elicit a targeted response based on immunodominant epitopes.
  • Uniform >95% purity in pools.
  • Peptide pool content is clearly defined, allowing individual peptide responses to be mapped easily if this is required.
  • Highly efficient and cost effective method for classifying T cell response.

Nature Communications DOI: 10.1038/ncomms13264

Brief synopsis: Using synthetic peptides and peptide pools Anikeeva et al. have developed a Ca2+ signalling activation assay that offers new insights into the dynamics of antigen-specific T cell activation.

Figure 1. Kinetics of calcium response of CMV-specific CD8+ T cells.CMV-specific CD8+ T cells from a healthy donor (a) and a patient after haploidentical stem cell transplantation (b) revealed different kinetics of Ca2+ signalling on antigen stimulation. CD8+ T cells were purified from PBMC by negative magnetic sorting and purified CD8 T cells were labelled with Fluo-4 and immobilized on a glass surface as described in ‘Methods’ section. The T cells from healthy donor were stimulated by CMV-derived peptide NLVPMATV at 10−4 M while the T cells from the patient were triggered with ProMix CMV peptide pool at 9 × 10−5 M. The images of responding cells are taken at 720 s after the stimulation. The data shown are representative of 5 (a) and 2 (b) independent experiments and are based on the analysis of 4,600 and 4,200 T cells, correspondingly. Scale bars, 50 μm.
