Description - Introduction to Peptide Science by Ian W. Hamley
Provides an interdisciplinary introduction to peptide science, covering their properties and synthesis, as well as many contemporary applications
Peptides are biomolecules comprised of amino acids which play an important role in modulating many physiological processes in our body. This book presents an interdisciplinary approach and general introduction to peptide science, covering contemporary topics including their applicability in therapeutics, peptide hormones, amyloid structures, self-assembled structures, hydrogels, and peptide conjugates including lipopeptides and polymer-peptide conjugates. In addition, it discusses basic properties and synthesis clearly and concisely.
Taking a logical approach to the subject, Introduction to Peptide Science gives readers the fundamental knowledge that is required to understand the cutting-edge material which comes later in the book. It offers readers in-depth chapter coverage of the basic properties of peptides; synthesis; amyloid and peptide aggregate structures; antimicrobial peptides and cell-penetrating peptides; and peptide therapeutics and peptide hormones.
