Synthesis And Characterization Of New Temporin A Analogs And A Hybrid Peptide
Abstract:Temporin A is one of a group of 31 structurally similar antibiotic peptides isolated from the skins of anurans, 10 of which were isolated from the European red frog, Rana temporaria. The synthesis and bacteriological study of temporin A and 8 analogs were reported previously, and this article describes the synthesis and analyses of 11 new temporin A analogs, and a cecropin A-temporin A hybrid peptide

- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
