Summary of "A comprehensive study on self-assembly and gelation of C-dipeptides - from design strategies to functionalities."

Computational and experimental methods were applied to investigate the self-assembly and gelation of C13-dipeptides. A modified aggregation propensity (APS) was introduced to correlate the effects of side chains of amino acids on the tendency to aggregate. From the experimental results, the ranges of 0.156chemical gels that were stabilized by strong interactions between the molecular aggregates. These gelators exhibit the potentials to be environmentally-friendly substitutes for the common functionalized peptide gelators.

Peptides are a promising class of gelators, due to their structural simplicity, biocompatibility and versatility. Peptides were synthesized based on four amino acids: leucine, phenylalanine, tyrosine ...

Comprehensive analysis of a dipeptide library to identify ghrelin release-modulating peptides.

We performed a comprehensive analysis of ghrelin release-modulating activity of a dipeptide library using MGN3-1, a ghrelin-producing cell line. We found that most dipeptides suppress ghrelin secretio...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A papain-like cysteine protease that has specificity for amino terminal dipeptides. The enzyme plays a role in the activation of several pro-inflammatory serine proteases by removal of their aminoterminal inhibitory dipeptides. Genetic mutations that cause loss of cathepsin C activity in humans are associated with PAPILLON-LEFEVRE DISEASE.

An approach, process, or methodology which emphasizes credible evidence and the best available scientific knowledge, judiciously integrated to achieve the best possible outcomes in structural design. For example, the design of a new OUTPATIENT CLINIC might incorporate a review of published research on outpatient clinic design, decisions on similar past projects, along with interviews with staff and consumers.
