Replace a string

I have to update a table with the replace function. The table test has a column text.
This column has string 'Invalid ISBN {11111,222,333}'. I have to replace the string in { and } braces with the new variable value.
update test
set text = 'Invalid ISBN { ' + @ISBNlist + ' }'
where !ID = @id.
 
Can anyone tell me how to use replace in the above update statement?
 
Thanks,

With Aneesh's suggestion it will much easier to achieve your task. However, here is an alternative if you are looking for one:
P.

DECLARE @t varchar(50), @StuffWith varchar(50)
 
SET @t = 'Invalid ISBN {11111,222,333}'
SET @StuffWith = '8547489+405616846'
 
Select STUFF(@t,PATINDEX('%_{%', @t)+2,LEN(@t)-(PATINDEX('%_{%', @t)+2), @StuffWith)
