Abstract: The current chapter focuses on the use of filamentous phages to display, modify, and characterize cytokines, which are proteins belonging to a versatile group of essential mediators involved in cell-cell communication. Cytokines exhibit a considerable diversity, both in functions and in structural features underlying their biological effects. A broad variety of cytokines have been successfully displayed on phages, allowing the high-throughput study of their binding properties and biological activities and the …
