The Peptides, Volume II: Synthesis, Occurrence, and Action of Biologically Active Polypeptides focuses on the synthesis of biologically active polypeptides and analogues.
The publication first offers information on linear peptides and heterodetic cyclic peptides. Discussions focus on depsipeptides, polycyclic and monocyclic disulfides, naturally occurring biologically active peptides, glandular hormones, and tissue hormones. The text then ponders on homodetic cyclic peptides, including homodetic cyclic homomeric peptide antibiotics, polycyclic biologically active polypeptides, and homodetic cyclic heteromeric peptide antibiotics.
The manuscript takes a look at the problems related with the synthesis of biologically active polypeptides, giving emphasis to a number of movements which elaborated on the matter and the advancements of preparative techniques and approaches leading to the purification of intermediates and end products.
The publication is a valuable reference for researchers interested in the occurrence, synthesis, and action of biologically active polypeptides.
