A microwave assisted peptide synthesis in water using nanosized Fmoc-amino acids was developed. 5, 7, and 10 mer peptides (Leu-enkephalinamide, dermorphinamide, and a typical difficult sequence, ACP (65-74) peptide) were successfully synthesized in water according to Fmoc chemistry
using water-dispersible nanoparticles with microwave irradiation.
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.
