Ra Pharmaceuticals

Ra Pharmaceuticals, Inc., has announced that it has received a development milestone payment under its collaboration agreement with Merck, known as MSD outside the US and Canada. The milestone payment is associated with the companies' collaboration...


Rapid Screening

Most native producers of ribosomally synthesized and post-translationally modified peptides, RiPPs, utilize N-terminal leader peptides to avoid potential cytotoxicity of mature products to...


Directed Evolution

Allosteric enzymes contain a wealth of catalytic diversity that remains distinctly underutilized for biocatalysis. Tryptophan synthase is a model allosteric system and a valuable enzyme...

Selective Bindings

In work published in Angewandte Chemie, researchers in the Wennemers Group present functionalized proline-rich peptides that bind c-di-GMP in aqueous solution. They also show that the functionalized...

Scientific Formulas

Cleavage Methodology

Natural product discovery has been at the root of modern drug design, and it continues to play a vital role as there is renewed focus on orally available peptide therapeutics. In particular, macrocyclic peptides...

Monterey Coast

If you thought Whistler, BC was awesome, wait until you see what we have planned for you in Monterey, California in 2019!

We will hold our 26th biennial Symposium from June 22nd until June 27th, 2019, at the luxurious Portola Hotel and Conference Center at Monterey Bay. Now is the time to submit an abstract, become a sponsor or register as an exhibitor.  We would love for you to join us!

Our Journal

Current Issue

The aim of Peptide Science is to publish significant original research papers and up-to-date reviews covering the entire field of peptide research. Peptide Science provides a forum for papers covering all aspects of peptide synthesis, materials, structure and bioactivity, including the use of peptides in exploring protein functions and protein-protein interactions.
