Abstract

The identification of low-molecular-weight protein inhibitors for functional studies as well as for the generation of lead drug compounds is one of the most important tasks in chemical biology. We describe a generalized assay that utilizes inhibitory aptamers for the identification of small molecules with aptamer-inherited properties. These compounds share the functional profile of the aptamers and thus are considered as potent protein inhibitors.
