High-Throughput Screening (HTS)

February 27, 2012

A process in which batches of compounds are tested for binding activity or biological activity against target molecules. High-throughput screening seeks to evaluate large numbers of compounds rapidly and in parallel. Compounds are tested as inhibitors of target enzymes, as competitors for binding of a natural ligand to its receptor, and as agonists or antagonists for receptor-mediated intracellular processes.
