Peptides play a decisive role in many physiological processes, whether as neurotransmitters, hormones or antibiotics. The rapid developments in peptide research over the past few decades make it almost impossible for newcomers to gain an overview. This means an easily comprehensible yet concise introduction is vital. This unique work covers all the important aspects of this wide-ranging field in one handy volume. On the basis of the fundamental chemical and structural properties of peptides, this reference runs the gamut from analysis, the occurrence and biological importance of peptides, via chemical, biochemical and genetic methods of peptide synthesis, right up to peptide libraries, peptide design and their role in drug research. Yet this book offers much more than a mere overview of the latest level of research. An encyclopedic appendix with valuable data on more than 500 biological relevant peptides and proteins, a comprehensive register and details of further literature references make this the ideal reference for all questions regarding peptide research. For newcomers and specialists alike. On the basis of the fundamental chemical and structural properties of peptides, this reference runs the gamut from analysis, the occurrence and biological importance of peptides.

This unique reference book contains 372 articles selected from 762 plenary lectures, workshops and poster presentations made during the Thirteenth American Peptide Symposium held in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The book opens with Nobel Laureate Dr. Bruce Merrifield's `Remarks on Peptide Chemistry' which focus on past scientists and their contributions of peptide chemistry in all aspects of biology, and Dr. Victor Hruby's Pierce Award Lecture on designing peptides, pseudopeptides and peptidomimetics to understand the relationship between structure and biology activity. The contributions are grouped into 14 sections: Synthetic and Analytical Methods Peptide Mimetics Glycopeptides/Lipopeptides Peptide Hormones/Neuropeptides Peptide Inhibitors/Peptide-Receptor Interactions Peptide Vaccines and Immunology Conformational Analysis Peptide Pharmaceuticals/Diagnostics and Peptide Delivery Computational Biochemistry Peptide Macromolecular Interactions Peptide Libraries De novo Design of Peptides and Proteins; and three Workshops: Approaches and Advances in Peptide Synthesis, Purification and Analysis An Introduction to NMR Spectroscopy of Peptides An Introduction to Energy Minimization, Molecular Dynamics, Molecular Modelling and Conformational Analysis of Peptides. This 1200 page compendium of current research from both academic and industrial laboratories demonstrates the exponential growth of the use of peptides in the diverse fields of medical science.

Thoroughly updated, incorporating around 25 % new material, Sewald/Jakubke remains the only modern and scientifically up-to-date advanced textbook on peptide biochemistry, distilling the knowledge of hundreds of publications into a highly readable synopsis of this diverse field. The authors explain the broad fundamentals of peptide synthesis and structure, systematically addressing important families of biologically active peptides, and adopting an interdisciplinary approach that covers application areas in biotechnology, pharmaceutical science, and biomedicine. One major focus is on such "hot" research topics as pseudopeptides, peptidomimetics, and combinatorial synthesis. This new edition also features study questions for each learning unit, for easier self-study and classroom teaching.

Pharmacochemistry Library, Volume 19: Small Peptides: Chemistry, Biology, and Clinical Studies focuses on the processes, reactions, properties, and characteristics of peptides, including analogues and proteases. The publication first takes a look at angiotensin II and bombesin/gastrin-releasing peptide. Topics include conformationally restricted analogues of bombesin, non-peptide antagonists of angiotensin II, receptor subtypes of angiotensin II, and bombesin/GRP antagonists and cancer. The text then elaborates on bradykinin, cholecystokinin, and enkephalin analogues. The manuscript examines luteinizing hormone releasing hormone and somatostatin. Topics include enzymic degradation of somatostatin and analogues, clinical applications of somatostatin analogues, and pharmacological and clinical studies with LHRH agonists and antagonists. The formulation of peptides and inhibitors of aspartyl proteases are also mentioned. The book is a valuable source of information for chemists, biologists, and readers interested in small peptides.

From the first and second sessions on peptide hormones and neuropeptides, one can gain an appreciation of the role to be fulfilled by peptide hormone analogs in medicine. There does not seem to be a single bioactive peptide family for which a therapeutic role is not envisioned at this time. Most interesting is the fact that short analogs as well as cyclic analogs, with structures that are often quite dissimilar from that of the parent native hormone, are being considered as potential drugs. Increased potency and duration of action generally result from these structural modifications. In the third session, emphasis is put on one's recognition of the ever-growing role of lipid membranes in modulating biological expression. Refinement of one's understanding of the bioactive conformation of a peptide is paramount for allowing rational design. Only sophisticated techniques such as NMR in different solvent systems, coupled to molecular modeling in different environments, and X-ray crystallography will yield the information needed to gain an appreciation of the bioactive conformation of a peptide.

The American Peptide Society (APS) provides a forum for advancing and promoting knowledge of the chemistry and biology of peptides. The approximately one thousand members of the Society come from North America and from more than thirty other countries throughout the world. Establishment of the APS was a result of the rapid worldwide growth that has occurred in peptide-related research, and of the increasing interaction of peptide scientists with virtually all fields of science. Peptides for Youth: The Proceedings of the the 20th American Peptide Symposium will highlight many of the recent developments in peptide science, with a particular emphasis on how these advances are being applied to basic problems in biology and medicine. The 20th American Peptide Symposium will take place June 26 - 30, 2007 in Montreal, Canada.
