Resumo

Purification of plasmid DNA targeting therapeutic applications still presents many challenges, namely on supports and specific ligand development. Monolithic supports have emerged as interesting approaches for purifying pDNA due to its excellent mass transfer properties and higher binding capacity values. Moreover, arginine ligands were already described to establish specific and preferential interactions with pDNA. Additionally, some studies revealed the ability of arginine based cationic peptides to condense plasmid DNA, which increased lengthening can result in strongest interactions with higher binding capacities for chromatographic purposes of large molecules such as pDNA. In this work, arginine homopeptides were immobilized in monolithic supports and their performance was evaluated and compared with a single arginine monolithic column regarding supercoiled (sc) plasmid DNA purification. Specific interactions of arginine based peptides with several nucleic acids present in a clarified Escherichia coli lysate sample showed potential for the sc pDNA purification. Effectively, the immobilization of the arginine homopeptides became more functional compared with the single arginine amino acid, showing higher binding capacities, which was also reflected in the intensity of the interactions. The combination of structural versatilities of monoliths with the specificity of arginine peptides raised as a promising strategy for sc pDNA purification. (AU)
