Amphiphilic peptides typically consist of a peptide portion that may be 5 -25 (or more) amino acids in length. The hydrophobic portion may be a single fatty acid residue, but can also be more elaborate. The main focus of this article lies on the family of synthetic anion binders (SATs) of the general structure (R 1 ) 2 N-COCH 2 OCH 2 CO-(Aaa) n -OR 3 . The most-common R 1 group is the octadecyl (C 18 H 37 ) group. The most studied peptide sequence in this family is (Gly) 3 -Pro-(Gly) 3 , although different se…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
