**Our Mission** Understanding how proteins interact with each other is key to deciphering their function in bacteria, animal and plant cells. Basic, pharmaceutical and agro-biotech research relies on protein interaction data to understand cell physiology and pathology, identify new therapeutic targets and uncover the mechanisms of action of drugs. Since its inception in 1998, Hybrigenics has been a major player in the field of protein interactions with landmark contributions and achievements. Hybrigenics scientists were among the first to provide the community with high quality, large-scale protein interaction maps for bacteria (Rain et al. Nature 2001) and eukaryotes such as Drosophila (Formstecher et al., Genome Research 2005) and Homo sapiens (Colland et al., Genome Research 2004). These published dataset can be browsed freely thanks to PIMRider software, our dedicated protein interaction database. The company was founded on its optimized yeast two-hybrid (Y2H) technology that enables researchers to discover novel protein interactions in any cell type or tissue in a comprehensive manner.

Drug Target Deconvolution

ULTImate Yeast Chemical Hybrid (YChemH)

Applications
Our ULTImate YChemH ™ technology is a target deconvolution platform for small bioactive molecules to identify its direct protein partners. At different stage of a drug discovery project, it allows to:

  • Identify the protein target of a compound, following a phenotypic drug discovery approach, and elucidate the mechanism of action (MOA)
  • Explore and manage the polypharmacology of the molecule of interest.
  • Identify the off-targets that could potentially leads to side effects
  • Evaluate safety of chemicals (toxico-proteomics)
  • Support drug repositioning in new therapeutic areas

Decision making

  • Chemical series lead optimization
  • Select the best candidate
  • De-risk molecules
  • Better design the preclinical and clinical studies
  • Reduce and optimize animal testing
  • Discover opportunities for drug repositioning

Strength
ULTImate Yeast Chemical Hybrid (YChemH) is a unique screening platform based on the Y3H technique and adapted from the most comprehensive Y2H technology developed at Hybrigenics (ULTImate Y2H ™, 20+ years as a fee-for-service):

  • Exhaustive screening of the most complex protein domain libraries available (120+ libraries from more than 35 species available as of today). https://www.hybrigenics-services.com/library/1 . We construct new libraries upon request.
  • Unbiased approach as it screens libraries for all proteome from a given tissue or cell lines of interest.
  • High sensitivity (transcriptional read-out, no washing steps)
  • Simplified and fast analysis of the results thanks to sophisticated bioinformatics (Interacting domain, Confidence score, ...)

Standard YChemH platform Work Packages

  • WP1: Chemistry (Design and synthesis of the tagged compound(s))
  • WP2: YChemH screening part (2-3 months)
    -- WP2a: Permeability in yeast and cell viability
    -- WP2b: YChemH Screen
  • WP3: Specific Library construction if needed (optional)
  • Validation studies (optional):
    -- WP4: In cell validation of selected targets - 1-by-1 YChemH assays
    -- WP4a: validation of experimental fragments
    -- WP4b : validation of corresponding full length proteins
    -- WP5: In cell validation of selected targets - competition with free small molecules

Principle
The small molecule of interest is used as a bait to screen highly complex protein domain libraries. The small molecule - protein interactions are detected thanks to the reconstitution of an active transcription factor from DNA Binding Domain (DBD) and Activation Domain (AD) moieties.
Three components are used:

  • A hybrid protein containing a DBD fused to an Anchor Binding Protein (ABP)
  • A hybrid protein containing a transcriptional AD fused to a ‘prey’ protein fragment from the library
  • A bait derivative (Anchor – Linker – Small Molecule Bait).

When a "small molecule – prey protein" interaction takes place, the bait derivative bridges the gap between the DBD and the AD thanks to the anchor-ABD interaction. This enables the expression of the reporter gene and subsequent yeast growth on a selective medium. Positive clones are then analyzed by sequencing to identify the protein partners.

Publications
Results from a YChemH target deconvolution study have recently been published (Mueller et al, Heptalogy, 2018, doi: 10.1002/hep.30329). https://aasldpubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1002/hep.30329 . It describes the experiments we performed to identify the protein targets and fine-tune the interacting domain.

ULTImate RNA Y3H

ULTImate RNA Y3H (RNA yeast three-hybrid) for RNA bait screening. Derived from our ULTImate Y2H technology, it allows to screen highly complex domain-based libraries to identify protein partners of any short RNA.

  • Applications: Identify and characterize RNA-protein interactions
  • Molecules Tested: Short RNA

How does it work?

ULTImate RNA Y3H is based on ULTImate Y2H, with modifications to use a small RNA as a bait. It consists of the detection of ‘bait-prey’ interactions thanks to the reconstitution of a full transcription factor from DNA Binding Domain and Activation Domain moieties. In the RNA Y3H approach, three hybrid molecules are used:

  • A hybrid protein containing a DNA Binding Domain (DBD) fused to a RNA Binding Domain (RBD)
  • A hybrid protein containing a transcriptional Activation Domain (AD) fused to a ‘prey’ protein fragment from the library
  • A hybrid RNA molecule consisting of two RNA fragments, the RNA anchor interacting with RBD and the RNA bait.

Upon interaction of the RNA bait with the prey, the gap between the DBD and the AD is bridged, enabling the transcription of the reporter gene in yeast cells. The DNA of the positive clones is then sequenced and analyzed to identify the protein partners.

Key-benefits

  • Fast and exhaustive screening thanks to Hybrigenics patented cell-to-cell mating protocol
  • Detection of even weak interactions and interactions with proteins whose transcripts are rare

Yeast Two-Hybrid Transmembrane Protein Screening

Price on request

MBMATE Y2H FOR MEMBRANE PROTEINS

We can even screen your transmembrane baits!
To identify the interacting partners of an integral transmembrane (TM) protein, you can take advantage of our exclusive MBmate Y2H. This is a modified Yeast Two-Hybrid technique in which the bait and its partners are expressed at the yeast's plasma membrane.

Based on a split-ubiquitin system, MBmate Y2H is the only service allowing to screen full TM baits rather than cytoplasmic, extracellular or lumenal fragments.

Applications

  • Discover novel integral membrane protein partners for your favorite membrane protein
  • Elucidate mechanisms of action
  • Ascribe functions to uncharacterized membrane proteins
  • Unravel pathways and molecular machines

Molecules Tested

  • Full-length membrane proteins or transmembrane fragments

Highly complex domain libraries screened to saturation

  • Choose from a unique collection of membrane protein domain libraries, or request a custom one
  • All libraries are screened to saturation by covering 10 times their complexity on average

How does it work?

Your membrane protein of interest is fused to the C-terminal half of ubiquitin (Cub) linked to a transcription factor (TF), LexA-VP16. Each prey in the library is fused to the N-terminal half of ubiquitin (Nub) bearing a point mutation resulting in a low affinity for Cub. Upon interaction between the bait and a prey, Cub and Nub re-associate to form an ubiquitin molecule, which is then recognized by endogenous proteases releasing the TF. The transcription of the His3 reporter gene is activated and allows yeast cells to grow on a medium lacking histidine. The DNA of the positive clones is then sequenced and analyzed to identify the protein partners.

1-BY-1 Y2H & INTERACTION DOMAIN MAPPING

1-by-1 Y2H and Interaction Domain Mapping (IDM) are robust and versatile techniques to investigate interactions and delineate interacting domains. Get insights into your favorite protein interactions and receive publication-grade figures.

Applications

  • Test the interaction between two candidate proteins
  • Compare the binding of wild-type and mutant proteins or between isoforms
  • Map the exact interacting domain on a protein

Molecules Tested

  • Full- length wild-type or mutant protein
  • Protein fragments or peptides
  • Cytoplasmic or extracellular proteins
  • Loops, tails or whole membrane proteins

How does it work?

1-by-1 Y2H and Interaction Domain Mapping take advantage of our ULTImate Y2H™ Yeast Two-Hybrid technology.

The two proteins or protein fragments to be tested are cloned in frame with LexA or Gal4 DNA binding domain and Gal4 activation domain.

In yeast, the interaction between the two fragments leads to the reconstitution of a functional transcription factor and activates the transcription of HIS3 and LacZ reporter genes.
HIS3 allows yeast cells to grow on a medium lacking histidine, whereas LacZ offers quantitative measurement of the interaction’s strength thanks to colorimetric or luminescent ß-galactosidase substrates.

To delineate the interacting domain on each protein, multiple fragments are cloned by gap repair in yeast and tested for their interaction with the protein partner.

For integral membrane proteins the process is adapted and takes advantage of our MBmate Y2H* protocol.

Key-benefits

  • Simple, fast and robust pairwise interaction test
  • Quantification of the strength of the interactions
  • Deeper characterization of your interaction and the domains involved
  • Publication-grade illustrations including all positive and negative controls
  • Scientific assistance to select the domains to be tested

ULTImate Domain Library

Price on request

We are proud to have the largest collection of libraries ready to be screened.

With over 90 libraries from more than 35 species, Hybrigenics Services is proud to have the largest collection available for screening. From human to plants, from bacteria to drosophila, the diversity of our highly complex libraries allows us to serve you whatever your research area is.

We keep constructing new libraries to meet the needs of the research community. We value your feedback, please let us know what you want in our contact form or on Twitter with the hashtag #HGXlibraries.

Our libraries are also the most complex ones on the market and ULTImate Y2H™ cell-to-cell mating is the only technology to screen them exhaustively with an average 10-fold coverage of their complexity.

These protein fragment libraries can be used for all ULTImate screens to discover the partners of a protein, a DNA sequence, a short RNA or a small molecule of interest.

Each ULTImate library we construct is validated by stringent quality controls:

  • We verify a complexity of at least 10 million independent, primary fragments in yeast for our random-primed cDNA libraries. The complexity of the genomic fragment libraries constructed for organisms that contain no or few introns is defined by the size of the genome
  • We sequence hundreds of clones to check the fragment size distribution and ensure that ribosomal RNA, mitochondrial DNA and empty vectors represent less than 10% of all sequences.
  • We conduct validation screens with several bait proteins to assess the library quality and recapitulate published interactions.
