Peptide Drug Screening

Peptides are ideally suited to mimic natural ligands and usually act in an antagonistic or agonistic manner. Small active peptide molecules have huge potential to be developed as vaccines, diagnostic reagentsand lead compounds. Therefore, peptides have become the highlight of drug discovery, especially due to their small size, structural diversity and high specificity for a given target. Moreover, peptides can be selected from large natural or artificial peptide libraries rapidly, and are easy for chemical processing and synthesis. [url][/url]
