Peptide and Protein Design for Biopharmaceutical Applications

Peptides function potent medicines within the medical institution this present day. but the inherent drawbacks of peptide constructions can restrict their efficacy as medicinal drugs. to beat this researchers are constructing new tips on how to create ‘tailor-made’ peptides and proteins with more suitable pharmacological houses.

Design of Peptides and Proteins presents an outline of the experimental and computational tools for peptide and protein layout, with an emphasis on particular functions for therapeutics and biomedical study. subject matters lined include:

  • Computer modeling of peptides and proteins
  • Peptidomimetics
  • Design and synthesis of cyclic peptides
  • Carbohydrates in peptide and protein design
  • De novo layout of peptides and proteins
  • Medical improvement applications
  • An prolonged case research – the layout of insulin variants

Design of Peptides and Proteins offers the state of the art of this fascinating strategy for therapeutics, with contributions from foreign specialists. it's a vital source for tutorial and commercial scientists within the fields of peptide and protein drug layout, biomedicine, biochemistry, biophysics, molecular modelling, man made natural chemistry and medicinal/pharmaceutical chemistry.
