Design and Synthesis of Novel Chemokine Analogs Derived from vMIP-II
Abstract:Stepwise solid phase synthesis using the Fmoc chemistry is reported for a panel of 71-residue and novel unnatural chemokine analogs derived from vMIP-II. This demonstrates the feasibility of using this synthetic method to generate de novo designed protein ligand molecules to study the biology and pharmacology of chemokine receptors.

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.
