Peptide-presenting phage libraries are a robust are a robust technology originally applied for the selection of peptides against single proteins, but that is now being applied for cell-targeting technologies. From recent work, it is clear that this technology can readily identify cell-binding peptides, but isolation of cell-specific peptides in most cases requires robust methods to focus selection on receptors unique to the target cell. The next technological hurdle for applying this technology will be developing approaches to retain both ligand and vector function when translating phage-identified peptides into the heterologous structural context of a gene delivery vector.
