Disulfide-rich peptides are emerging as potential templates for drug design applications However, the synthesis and reengineering of disulfide-rich peptides is challenging, owing to the complexity of the oxidative folding process involving a number of diRead More →
Peptides have been a promising molecular scaffold for the development of potential therapeutics with high affinity and specificity to biomacromolecules However, their inherent proteolytic instability significantly hampers their biological applicationsRead More →
In this work, we report the discovery of a small phenyl molecule with four isosteric thiolate-reactive groups of sequentially-varied reactivity, and how this molecule was exploited in combination with cysteine penicillamine thiolates of differentRead More →
