Why Different Sequence of Peptides Have Different Functions

sequence of peptides

Peptides are the building blocks of life and perform a wide range of functions in living organisms. They are made up of short chains of amino acids that can be folded into complex three-dimensional structures. The sequence of these peptides is unique to each protein and determines its structure and ultimately its function. In this […]

From Nature to Lab: Discovering Anti-Cancer Peptides

types of peptides

Introduction In a recent investigation, scientists from the AHB Lab found novel peptides with anti-cancer potential. According to a study published in Nature Communications, it was shown that cyclic peptides particularly link to chains of ubiquitin proteins, which are widely utilised as a “death tag” for damaged proteins. The proteasome then breaks down the damaged […]
