Lipoparticle Technology

High concentration membrane proteins on virus-like particles, for drug and antibody discovery

How do I get enough membrane protein for antibody immunization and screening?

Epitope Maps Strengthen Intellectual Property

How is your epitope mapping technology different?

Lipoparticles are nano-scale virus-like particles (VLPs) containing high concentrations of specific membrane proteins in their native conformation. Lipoparticles capture conformationally-intact membrane proteins directly from the cell surface, enabling these complex proteins to be manipulated as essentially soluble proteins.

"Integral Molecular provided identification of critical binding residues for an antibody for which no mapping had been successfully done after years in development Excellent team, excellent communication, results when promised results with impact to drive decision making."


Why is this approach so successful?

Integral Molecular assesses antibody binding on target proteins directly within intact cells. Each individual residue is mutated using proprietary Shotgun Mutagenesis technology for high-throughput Creation of mutants, allowing precise resolution of binding Specificity.

Lipoparticle applications include:

  • Immunization
  • Phage/yeast display
  • Antibody screening by ELISA
  • Kinetic analysis by biosensor
  • Radioligand and fluorescent binding assays

What epitope mapping services do you offer?

Pre-validated Shotgun Mutagenesis libraries are available for expedited project turnaround time. Epitope mapping services are provided on a fee-for-service basis, and Integral Molecular provides access to all data in order to enable regulatory and intellectual property filings.

Custom Lipoparticles

Lipoparticles are customized to incorporate any membrane protein of choice. Each batch of Lipoparticles is assessed using up to 16 quality control metrics to ensure homogeneity, purity, and target protein integrity.

Ready Receptor Lipoparticles

Pre-validated Lipoparticles contain optimized, highly-expressed membrane proteins and are available for rapid delivery. Ready Receptor Lipoparticles are produced and validated using all of the stringent quality metrics used for Custom Lipoparticle production.

Epitope Mapping Publications

"When we carried out an epitope mapping study We had many emails and calls to discuss the Science. Integral seemed genuinely interested in Our Science. The group that we dealt with were responsive and helpful. Not just there to Sell you things."
