Synthesis of polypeptides and their importance. Polypeptides are made by chaining NCAs in various ways and have a wide variety of applications, such as drug carriers or drugs.

Basic-to-acidic flash switching for organic synthesis

The combination of polypeptides has colossal significance in numerous applications, including life-saving medications and drug carriers. Thus, the blend of pure N-carboxy anhydrides (NCAs)...
Cyclic hexapeptide in its bioactive form with the integrin-binding tripeptide sequence arginine-glycine-aspartic acid: Green spheres represent carbon atoms, red oxygen atoms, blue nitrogen atoms and white hydrogen atoms. Yellow spheres represent the two N-methyl groups and dashed orange lines show the two intramolecular hydrogen bonds. Arrangement (clockwise): arginine (top), glycine, aspartic acid, alanine, N-methylated alanine, N-methylated D-valine

Scientists determined how peptides can be designed for medication

Peptides i.e., short amino acid chains monitor the main mechanism of the body. If using it for medications, it represents a billion-dollar market in the pharmaceutical...
