APPLICATION OF PEPTIDE                                            http://www.acinopeptide.com                                                                      

 

Synthetic peptides are widely used for the following purposes:

Biochemical Drug

Peptide drugs are either naturally-occurring peptides or altered natural peptides. There are many naturally-occurring peptides that are biologically active. If a patient does not naturally produce a peptide that they need, this peptide can be synthesized and given to them. In addition, the amino acids in an active peptide can be altered to make analogues of the original peptide. If the analogue is more biochemical active than the original peptide it is known as an agonist and if it has the reverse effect is known as an antagonist.

 

Diagnostic Peptides

Peptides can be designed that change color under certain conditions, and these can be used for diagnostic purposes.

 

Immunology

Peptides are used in immunology studies to measure the antigenic response. KLH-conjugated peptides are used to elicit an immugenic response

 

Toxicology Studies 

Peptides found in toxins/ poisons of various organisms are researched for possible anti-venom applications

 

Biochemistry 

Research for artificial hormones using peptides is carried out in various branches of biochemistry

 

NMR Research 

Structural studies of proteins and peptides of biological interest are carried out using NMR

 

Animal Biology Studies 

Effect of peptides on various bodily functions of animals

 

Cosmetics 

Peptides like GHK-Cu, Argireline, Matrixyl are regularly used in cosmetics

 

Peptidomimetics 

Peptides can mimic protein segments and be used as probes to study protein-protein interactions
