Library on a glass slide: A variety of small molecules, including complex natural products, are introduced to glass slides using a photoaffinity reaction (see picture). The small molecules retain the inherent ability to interact with the relevant binding proteins. Importantly, this immobilization procedure does not require a specific functional group, and can be applied for use with a diverse small-molecule library.
