Fusion proteins encompass a protein or small peptide moiety which is used as a tag, fused to another protein of interest. Fusion proteins are used in biochemical and in genetic (high-throughput) applications and are especially suited to study protein–protein interactions, even on a genome-wide scale, and for the generation of antibodies.
