Pharmaceutical grade Peptides can be used for various applications in the biotechnology industry. The availability of such peptides has made it possible for scientists and biotechnologist to conduct molecular biology and pharmaceutical development on an expedited basis. Several companies provide Pharmaceutical grade Peptides peptide synthesis services to fulfil the needs of the clients.
A Peptide can be identified based on its molecular structure. Peptides can be classified into three groups – structural, functional and biochemical. Structural peptide can be recognised with the help of a microscope and molecular biology tools like mass spectrometer, x-ray crystals, etc. The active peptide can be identified using the spectroscopic method. It is derived from a molecule that contains a peptide linkage or a residue that binds to a peptide. Biological function of peptide can be realised through Pharmaceutical grade Peptides peptide synthesis. Biochemical process is realised through the use of peptide synthesis.
Pharmaceutical Peptide Synthesis
It has been proved that the synthesis of the peptide is a cost-effective way of producing medications with high-quality and effective results. The primary purpose of peptide synthesis is the manufacture of anti-microbial agents, antibiotics, insecticides, hormones, vitamins and enzymes. It is also used for the synthesis of prostaglandins, neuropeptides, growth hormone, cholesterol, neurotransmitters, hormones and other bioactive substances. These biologicals can be manufactured through the synthesis of peptide. The process of synthesis of peptide involves several steps including peptide isolation, purification, gelation and conversion to a useful form.
There are many types of peptide available in the market. They are identified as follows: peptide derivatives, non-peptide, hydrolyzed, hydrophilic, and polar. These categories include the most commonly used peptide and the process of manufacturing them.
Non-peptide peptide derivatives
Non-peptide peptide derivatives include C-terminal fragments (CTFs) of the proteins that have been treated chemically to remove side effects. They are derived from the protein sequence and have a long half-life. Non-peptide peptide derivatives are also known as small molecule compounds. Some of these peptide derivatives are derived from the C-terminal fragments of human genes that are used as genetic markers and transcription activators.
Porphyrins are produced when hydrolyzed and then converted to peptide through peptidase. In the synthesis of these, the hydrophobic side chains and the side chain with amino group have been omitted. Porphyrin-like peptide is derived through a series of chemical processes. In this way, there are two identical peptide molecules synthesized by peptidase.
