Abstract: Antibodies are the fastest growing class of pharmaceutical proteins and essential tools for research and diagnostics. Often antibodies do show a desirable specificity profile but lack sufficient affinity for the desired application. Here, we describe a method to increase the affinity of recombinant antibody fragments based on the construction of mutagenized phage display libraries.After the construction of a mutated antibody gene library by error-prone PCR, selection of high-affinity variants is either perform…
