Peptide synthesis and it application
Peptides are naturally occurring biological molecules found in all organisms. It is a short chain of about 30-40 amino acid carry secondary structure of protein stabilized by peptide bond between two amino acid. The shortest peptides are dipeptides, consisting of 2 amino acids joined by a single peptide bond, followed by tripeptides, tetrapeptides, etc. The natural process of producing long peptides (proteins) in living organism is known as protein biosynthesis. There are various peptides required for the normal life of an organism, but sometimes they do not synthesized in required amount, or if synthesized, it is in altered form. Therefore, it is required to synthesize these essential proteins ex vivo.
