Truncation Library

A truncation library is used to

  • Determine the minimum length of an epitope (minimal epitope)
  • Map the minimal binding site of a protein that is required for proper binding

Truncation libraries are generated by reducing the peptide length (truncation) amino acid per amino acid from each terminus creating a set of truncated peptides with different lengths. If the key residues have already been identified using an alanine scanning library , truncation can be stopped at the key residues position.

Use our free and easy-to-use PepSequencer for generation of truncation libraries!
