Abstract: Aptamers have become important tools in research, diagnostics and therapeutics. Biophysical characterization of the binding parameters of aptamers is essential for the well functioning of these in diverse applications. MicroScale Thermophoresis (MST) is a rapid and precise method to analyze aptamer-target interactions in solution at microliter scale. The basis of this technology is a physical effect referred to as thermophoresis, which describes the directed movement of molecules through temperature gradients. The thermophoretic properties of a molecule depend besides - on its size - also on charge and hydration shell. Upon binding of a ligand at least one of these parameters is altered, which enables MST to analyze virtually any aptamer target interaction independent of the target size. We present the characterization of multiple aptamers to various targets from small molecules to large protein complexes following a specific protocol designed for the quantitative study of binding parameters of aptamer–target interactions in a highly sensitive cost- and time-efficient performance.Summary: MicroScale Thermophoresis is a rapid and precise method to analyze aptamer-target interactions in solution at microliter scale.
