Use of enzymes in peptide synthesis

Applied Biochemistry and Biotechnology
I M ChaikenF Widmer


Recent experiments in several laboratories have emphasized the benefits of proteolytic enzymes as effective catalysts for the formation of peptide bonds for synthesis and semisynthesis. This review summarizes successful applications in both stepwise synthesis for small peptides and fragment condensation to produce large polypeptides and proteins.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.
