Novel method of peptide synthesis promises to lower cost, increase availability of new drugs based on natural compounds
Jun. 23, 2010—A team of Vanderbilt chemists has developed a novel method for chemically synthesizing peptides that promises to lower the cost and increase the availability of drugs based on natural compounds. The new synthesis technique is described in a paper published in the June 24 issue of the journal Nature. Peptides are polymers made by stringing...
