Peptide Synthesis

Peptide synthesis is the creation of peptides using organic chemistry, which are organic macromolecule compounds which are composed of short chains of multiple amino acids connected to each other through peptide bonds.

How are Peptides Synthesized?

One amino acid is combined with the amino group of another by binding the carboxyl groups together to synthesize strings of amino acids or peptides. Similar to the synthesis of proteins in the cell, peptides are synthesized synthetically from the C-terminus (Carboxyl) to the N-terminus (Amine).

 

Antimicrobial peptides have been recently used as anti-microbial agents.
