What is an aptamer?
Aptamers are synthetic molecules specifically created to bind to another (usually larger) molecule with a very high attraction to a given target. These short nucleic acid sequences (DNA or RNA), wrap around all or part of their target (in the case of small molecules) or fit snugly into clefts and gaps within the surface of much larger target molecules (for proteins, cells, tissues etc). This ability to fold into or around the complex surfaces of a target, means that it is possible to select aptamers against almost any given target, with precision.
