A novel synthetic approach to alternating peptides

Polypeptide with a repeating sequence has attracted particular attention as a promising candidate of innovative structural materials. Fibrous proteins such as fibroin, collagen, and elastin are the representative class among natural polypeptides with specific repeating sequence. For

Peptides (small proteins) sharing an active nerve cell protecting site

Activity-dependent neuroprotective protein (ADNP), essential for brain formation, is frequently mutated in children on the autism spectrum. This protein, together with Activity-dependent neurotrophic factor (ADNF) are two proteins that were discovered in the laboratory of Prof. Illana
