Synthetic Antibiotic Peptides Database
Abstract:A computerized database for synthetic antibiotic peptides, the SAPD, has been created and is available on the Internet at web address, http://oma.terkko.helsinki.fi:8080 / ∼SAPD. The SAPD is modelled on two pre-existing computer databases for naturally occurring peptide antibiotics, the Antimicrobial Sequences Database and the Peptaibol Database, and it will contain both chemical and biological information on all published synthetic antibiotic peptides.

More about this publication?
- 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.
