Combinatorial phage display libraries of random peptides can be used to discover the epitopes of antibodies through a procedure termed "biopanning." The affinity isolation of phage-displayed epitope peptidomimetics allows molecular definition of the epitopes of monoclonal antibodies (MAbs). Panels of MAb-specific peptides allow computational prediction of B cell epitopes. Epitope profiles recognized by polyclonal serum samples can also be generated. Detailed step by step protocols and discussion of applications are provided.
