Nanobody is one special type of single-domain antibody fragment with multiple advantages over traditional antibody. Our previous work established linear-double-stranded DNA (ldsDNA, or PCR amplicon) as novel biological parts for building AND gate genetic circuits in mammalian cells. During this AND-gate circuit formation process, the co-transfected up- and down-stream ldsDNAs could be linked together to form intact gene expression cassette. Here, we employed this l dsDNA- b ased A ND- g ate (LBAG) strategy to construct nanobody library in mammalian cells. The sequence complexity of complementary determining regions (CDRs) was introduced into ldsDNA by PCR amplification. After being co-transfected into mammalian cells, the up- and down- stream ldsDNAs undergo AND gate linkage and form full nanobody coding regions, containing CDR1-3. High throughput sequencing identified 22,173 unique oligonucleotide sequences in total generated by this strategy. Thus, we developed a novel method to construct nanobody library, which is a start point for building high content nanobody library in mammalian cells. ### Competing Interest Statement The authors declare competing interests: X.T. is shareholder of Tianjin Diagentech Co., Ltd.
