Teixobactin is a newly discovered natural occurring antibiotic peptide. Teixobactin is a newly discovered antibiotic peptide identified from soil samples using isolation chip (iChip, Ichip, or ichip) technology. In recent years, researchers developed the iChip technology to allow for the… Read More ›
— … — Streptide is a newly discovered macrocyclic naturally occurring streptococcal peptide. Streptococcal bacteria are thought to use peptides as communication signals. Often these types of peptides contain unusual post-translational modifications. Many different biosynthetic strategies for the formation of… Read More ›
Peptides – a collection of words, nouns and terms to review – natural peptides, synthetic peptides, peptide mimics, artificial peptides, modified peptides and more.
WHAT ARE PEPTIDES? Peptides are macro molecules that contain amino acid monomers linked together by peptide (amide) bonds. The covalent bonds are formed when the carboxyl group of one amino acid reacts with the amino group of another. Peptides are… Read More ›
