Rush researchers have shown that two lab-developed and nasally-delivered peptides helped slow the spread of alpha-synuclein in mice.
People who get migraines are less likely to develop type 2 diabetes. Today, scientists report the latest findings about the relationship between insulin production and the peptides that cause migraine pain. They will present their results at ACS Fall 2021.
Researchers at Stanford and Berkeley Lab’s Molecular Foundry have developed virus-killing molecules called peptoids. The technology could make possible an emerging category of antiviral drugs that could treat everything from herpes and COVID-19 to the common cold.
New computer design methods pave the way for scientists to design and assemble bundles of peptides with specific size, shape, and display characteristics. Scientists can then link these customizable building blocks, called bundlemers, to produce a huge array of polymers.
