A group of researchers, Anna Puiggalí-Jou, Luis J. del Valle and Maria M. Pérez-Madrigal, headed by Prof. Carlos Alemán from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya have just published their results with microcantilevers sensors. The paper “Weighing biointeractions between fibrin (ogen) and clot-binding peptides using microcantilever sensors” published in Journal of Peptide Science examines the biorecognition event between clotted plasma proteins and a tumor-homing pentapeptide, CR(NMe)EKA, by applying a sensing technology based on microcantilevers. The results derived from the different characterization techniques including resonance frequency measurements performed by Mecwins technology (SCALA), reflect the importance of developing emerging technologies suitable for specific medical purposes.
