Papers and Patents using Spy technology Many of these publications don’t come up from a Pubmed search or citation search, so it should be useful to bring them all together and hyperlinked (now >500 publications). Patents may be omitted if there is a journal paper covering very similar work. Ones with particular relevance to IMMUNOLOGY, MATERIALS (polymers or mechanobiology), IMAGING , SEQUENCING or ENZYMES are marked. For an overview, please see our open-access review “Power to the Protein” from 2020. SpyBank is a database of >800 Tag/Catcher aa sequences to download (Excel file), from publications below. SpyBank includes includes expression organism, Tag/Catcher location (N-terminal, internal, C-terminal) and annotated linkers, as a reference for groups creating their own fusions. SpyBank itself is described in: “Insider information on successful covalent protein coupling with help from SpyBank. Keeble AH, Howarth M. Meth Enz 2019 PDF”. Most recent below. First 300 here.
