    We prepared peptides containing four repeats of the sequences VAALEKE (peptide E) or VAALKEK (peptide K). While the peptides alone adopt in aqueous solutions a random coil conformation, their equimolar mixture forms heterodimeric coiled coils as confirmed by CD spectroscopy. A terminal azide group enabled conjugation of the peptide with a synthetic drug carrier based on the N-(2-hydroxypropyl)methacrylamide copolymer containing propargyl groups using “click” chemistry. When incorporated into the polymer drug carrier, peptide E formed a stable noncovalent complex with peptide K belonging to a recombinant single-chain fragment (scFv) of the M75 antibody. The complex mediated a noncovalent linkage between the polymer drug carrier and the protein. The antigen binding affinity of the polymer−scFv complex was confirmed by ELISA. This approach offers a well-defined, specific, and nondestructive universal method for the preparation of protein-targeted polymer drug carriers.
