Abstract

Objective: Synthetic peptides are not sufficiently large or complex by themselves to induce immune system because of their small size. Synthetic peptides are usually conjugated to different carriers such as proteins and polyelectrolytes to enhance their immunogenic properties and antigen-specific antibody production (Abs) rate. Thus, the aim of this study is synthesis of peptide-protein covalent conjugates, and size and zeta potential analysis of these conjugates.
