Although protein-peptide interactions are estimated to constitute up to 40% of all protein interactions, relatively little information is available for the structural details of these interactions. Peptide-mediated interactions are a prime target for drug design because they are predominantly present in signaling and regulatory networks. A reliable data set of nonredundant protein-peptide complexes is indispensable as a basis for modeling and design, but current data sets for protein-peptide interactions are often biased towards specific types of interactions or are limited to interactions with small ligands. In PepX (http://pepx.switchlab.org), we have designed an unbiased and exhaustive data set of all protein-peptide complexes available in the Protein Data Bank with peptide lengths up to 35 residues. In addition, these complexes have been clustered based on their binding interfaces rather than sequence homology, providing a set of structurally diverse protein-peptide interactions. The final ...

The delivery of therapeutic peptides and proteins to the central nervous system is the biggest challenge when developing effective neuropharmaceuticals. The central issue is that the blood-brain barrier is impermeable to most molecules. Here we demonstrate the concept of employing an amphiphilic derivative of a peptide to deliver the peptide into the brain. The key to success is that the amphiphilic peptide should by design self-assemble into nanofibers wherein the active peptide epitope is tightly wrapped around the nanofiber core. The nanofiber form appears to protect the amphiphilic peptide from degradation while in the plasma, and the amphiphilic nature of the peptide promotes its transport across the blood-brain barrier. Therapeutic brain levels of the amphiphilic peptide are achieved with this strategy, compared with the absence of detectable peptide in the brain and the consequent lack of a therapeutic response when the underivatized peptide is administered.. ...

The performance of a biological scaffold formed by the self-assembling peptide RADA16 is comparable to the most commonly used synthetic materials employed in the culture of neural stem cells. Furthermore, improvements in the performance of RADA16 have recently been made by appending the self-assembling peptide sequence with various functional motifs from naturally occurring proteins. The focus of this work is to further analyze the performance of these functionalized self-assembling peptide scaffolds when used for the culture of neural stem cells, and to characterize these newly developed materials for comparison with RADA16. The effect of the functional motifs on the structure of the peptide scaffold was evaluated with circular dichroism and scanning electron microscopy, and the mechanical properties of the peptide scaffolds were examined through theological analysis. The functionalized peptides were found to have lower percentages of beta-sheet structure as well as reduced storage moduli in ...

Immune monitoring of T cell responses increasingly relies on the use of peptide pools. Peptides, when restricted by the same HLA allele, and presented from within the same peptide pool, can compete for HLA binding sites. What impact such competition has on functional T cell stimulation, however, is not clear. Using a model peptide pool that is comprised of 32 well-defined viral epitopes from Cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, and Influenza viruses (CEF peptide pool), we assessed peptide competition in PBMC from 42 human subjects. The magnitude of the peptide pool-elicited CD8 T cell responses was a mean 79% and a median 77% of the sum of the CD8 T cell responses elicited by the individual peptides. Therefore, while the effect of peptide competition was evident, it was of a relatively minor magnitude. By studying the dose-response curves for individual CEF peptides, we show that several of these peptides are present in the CEF-pool at concentrations that are orders of magnitude in excess of what is

Conformation generation of protein-bound peptides is critical for the determination of protein-peptide complex structures. Despite significant progress in conformer generation of small molecules, few methods have been developed for modeling protein-bound peptide conformations. Here, we have developed a fast de novo peptide modeling algorithm, referred to as MODPEP, for conformational sampling of protein-bound peptides. Given a sequence, MODPEP builds the peptide 3D structure from scratch by assembling amino acids or helix fragments based on constructed rotamer and helix libraries. The MODPEP algorithm was tested on a diverse set of 910 experimentally determined protein-bound peptides with 3-30 amino acids from the PDB and obtained an average accuracy of 1.90 Å when 200 conformations were sampled for each peptide. On average, MODPEP obtained a success rate of 74.3% for all the 910 peptides and ≥ 90% for short peptides with 3-10 amino acids in reproducing experimental protein-bound structures.
One of the core activities of high-throughput proteomics is the identification of peptides from mass spectra. Some peptides can be identified using spectral matching programs like Sequest or Mascot, but many spectra do not produce high quality database matches. De novo peptide sequencing is an approach to determine partial peptide sequences for some of the unidentified spectra. A drawback of de novo peptide sequencing is that it produces a series of ordered and disordered sequence tags and mass tags rather than a complete, non-degenerate peptide amino acid sequence. This incomplete data is difficult to use in conventional search programs such as BLAST or FASTA. DeNovoID is a program that has been specifically designed to use degenerate amino acid sequence and mass data derived from MS experiments to search a peptide database. Since the algorithm employed depends on the amino acid composition of the peptide and not its sequence, DeNovoID does not have to consider all possible sequences, but ...
Why it can ruin your assays Noticing a change in your peptide activity over time? Your peptide could be rapidly oxidizing. Peptides containing Cys, Trp, or Met are at great risk for oxidation. Oxidation of a peptide containing one or more of these residues can result in the generation of new peptidic species, such as peptides with oxidized side chain groups, peptide fragments resulting from backbone damage, and dimerized or aggregated peptides. Peptides that require reduced forms of Cys, Trp, or Met for activity may sub-perform in assays, resulting in decreased activity or no activity. A reduction in peptide activity may be observed over time resulting in a lack of assay reproducibility and increases in experimental data variability. What You Should Do To avoid the effects of peptide oxidation, store peptides in vials flushed with argon gas and tightly sealed. Make aliquots of lyophilized peptides according to daily experimental needs and limit opening and closing of peptide vials. You may also ...
The present work comparatively analyzes the interaction of alpha-MSH and its more potent and long-acting analog [Nle(4), D-Phe(7)]alpha-MSH (NDP-MSH) with lipid bilayers. the peptides were spin labeled with Toac (2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-1-oxyl-4-amino-4-carboxylic acid) at the N-terminal, as those derivatives had been previously shown to keep their full biological activity. Due to the special rigidity of the Toac covalent binding to the peptide molecule, this spin label is highly sensitive to the peptide backbone conformation and dynamics. the peptides were investigated both by the electron spin resonance (ESR) of Toac(0) and the time resolved fluorescence of Trp(9) present in the peptides. the Toac(0) ESR of the membrane-bound peptides indicates that the two peptides are inserted into the bilayer, close to the bilayer surface, in rather similar environments. A residue titration around pK(a) 7.5, possibly that of His(6), can be clearly monitored by peptide-lipid partition. Trp(9) time ...

The substrate scope of fluorinase enzyme mediated transhalogenation reactions is extended. Substrate tolerance allows a peptide cargo to be tethered to a 5-chloro-5-deoxynucleoside substrate for transhalogenation by the enzyme to a 5-fluoro-5-deoxynucleoside. The reaction is successfully extended from that previously reported for a monomeric cyclic peptide (cRGD) to cargoes of dendritic scaffolds carrying two and four cyclic peptide motifs. The RGD peptide sequence is known to bind upregulated αVβ3 integrin motifs on the surface of cancer cells and it is demonstrated that the fluorinated products have a higher affinity to αVβ3 integrin than their monomeric counterparts. Extending the strategy to radiolabelling of the peptide cargoes by tagging the peptides with [18F]fluoride was only moderately successful due to the poor water solubility of these higher order peptide scaffolds although the strategy holds promise for peptide constructs with improved solubility ...
MARTARI, Marco and SANDERSON, Ronald D.. Critical self-assembly concentration of bolaamphiphilic peptides and peptide hybrids determined by fluorescence measurements. S.Afr.j.chem. (Online) [online]. 2008, vol.61, pp.47-52. ISSN 1996-840X.. The study of the self-assembly properties of peptides and proteins is important for the understanding of molecular recognition processes and for the rational design of functionalbiomaterials. Novel bolaamphiphilic peptides and peptide hybrids incorporating non-natural aminoacids were designed around a model lysine/leucine-rich peptide with the intention to study their self-assembly behaviour. Steady-state fluorescence measurements using pyrene as fluorescent probe were adapted to the determination of the critical self-assembly concentrations (CSACs) of these amphiphilic peptides and peptide hybrids. Different experimental conditions were studied. The morphology of the peptide aggregates was evaluated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Concentration and pH ...
The work in this thesis can be divided into two sections, namely the study of delicious peptide, a food flavour and the antimicrobial peptide lactofenicin B. The main interest in these compounds is in terms of structure and conformation adopted in solution and how this relates to their mode of action. Delicious peptide was studied initially by 1H NMR spectroscopy for evidence of a specific solution structure. Results show that delicious peptide does not adopt a regular conformation in solution. Molecular dynamics simulations of this peptide show the flexibility of the peptide structure in solution. Quenched molecular dynamics simulations were used to search for low energy conformers of the peptide. The results suggest that the flavour of the peptide is produced by interaction of basic and acidic regions in the peptide. The work was extended to examine delicious peptide analogues with similar flavour characteristics. The results obtained suggest that similar interactions of basic and acidic ...

Neurological diseases such as neurodegeneration, pain, psychiatric disorders, stroke, and brain cancers would greatly benefit from the use of highly potent and specific peptide pharmaceuticals. Peptides are especially desirable because of their low inherent toxicity. The presence of the blood brain barrier (BBB), their short duration of action, and their need for parenteral administration limits their clinical use. However, over the past decade there have been significant advances in delivering peptides to the central nervous system. Angiopep peptides developed by Angiochem (Montreal, Canada), transferrin antibodies developed by ArmaGen (Santa Monica, USA), and cell penetrating peptides have all shown promise in delivering therapeutic peptides across the BBB after intravenous administration. Noninvasive methods of delivering peptides to the brain include the use of chitosan amphiphile nanoparticles for oral delivery and nose to brain strategies. The uptake of the chitosan amphiphile ...
The pH (Low) Insertion Peptides (pHLIP® peptides) find application in studies of membrane-associated folding, since spontaneous insertion of these peptides is conveniently triggered by varying pH. Here we employed small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) to investigate WT pHLIP® peptide oligomeric state in solution at high concentrations and monitor changes in liposome structure upon peptide insertion into the bilayer. We established that even at high concentrations (up to 300 μM) WT pHLIP® peptide at pH 8.0 does not form oligomers higher than tetramers (which exhibit concentration-dependent transfer to monomeric state as it was shown previously). This finding has significance for medical applications, when high concentration of the peptide is injected into blood and diluted in blood circulation. The interaction of WT pHLIP® peptide with liposomes does not alter the unilamellar vesicle structure upon peptide adsorption by lipid bilayer at high pH or upon insertion across the bilayer at low pH. At the

We describe an ELISA-based method that can be used to identify and quantitate proteins in biological samples. In this method, peptides in solution, derived from proteolytic digests of the sample, compete with substrate-attached synthetic peptides for antibodies, also in solution, generated against the chosen peptides. The peptides used for the ELISA are chosen on the basis of their being (i) products of the proteolytic (e.g. tryptic) digestion of the protein to be identified and (ii) unique to the target protein, as far as one can know from the published sequences. In this paper we describe the competition assay and we define the optimal conditions for the most effective assay. We have performed an analysis of the kinetics of interaction between the four components of the assay: the plastic substratum to which the peptide is bound, the bound peptide itself, the competing added peptide, and the antibody that is specific for the peptide and we compare the results of theoretical simulations to the actual
With the advent of high throughput biomolecular engineering techniques, it has become possible to isolate short peptides that bind to a variety of targets ranging from inorganic materials to proteins. The application of peptides as therapeutics has been hampered by the inherent susceptibility of peptides to proteases present throughout the human body. One strategy to overcome this protease susceptibility is to fortify peptides via cyclization or other conformational constraints. Indeed, nature uses this strategy in several classes of peptides such as cyclotides and defensins which are stabilized by networks of disulfide bonds and in some cases head-to-tail cyclization. My group studies a class of peptides termed lasso peptides because of their unique slipknot-like structure. This highly entropically disfavored fold endows the peptides with tremendous stability; some lasso peptides can retain their structure and function even after boiling in 8 M urea. Lasso peptides are also resistant to ...

BACKGROUND: Self-assembling peptides that form nanostructured hydrogels are important biomaterials for tissue engineering scaffolds. The P₁₁-family of peptides includes, P₁₁-4 (QQRFEWEFEQQ) and the complementary peptides P₁₁-13 (EQEFEWEFEQE) and P₁₁-14 (QQOrnFOrnWOrnFOrnQQ). These form self-supporting hydrogels under physiological conditions (pH 7.4, 140 mM NaCl) either alone (P₁₁-4) or when mixed (P₁₁-13 and P₁₁-14). We report a SUMO-peptide expression strategy suitable for allowing release of native sequence peptide by SUMO protease cleavage.. RESULTS: We have expressed SUMO-peptide fusion proteins from pET vectors by using autoinduction methods. Immobilised metal affinity chromatography was used to purify the fusion protein, followed by SUMO protease cleavage in water to release the peptides, which were recovered by reverse phase HPLC. The peptide samples were analysed by electrospray mass spectrometry and self-assembly was followed by circular dichroism and ...

Structural biology of peptides presented by class I and class II MHC proteins has transformed immunology, impacting our understanding of fundamental immune mechanisms and allowing researchers to rationalize immunogenicity and design novel vaccines. However, proteins are not static structures as often inferred from crystallographic structures. Their components move and breathe individually and collectively over a range of timescales. Peptides bound within MHC peptide binding grooves are no exception, and their motions have been shown to impact recognition by TCRs and other receptors in ways that influence function. Further, peptides tune the motions of MHC proteins themselves, which impacts recognition of peptide/MHC complexes by other proteins. Here we review the motional properties of peptides in MHC binding grooves and discuss how peptide properties can influence MHC motions. We briefly review theoretical concepts about protein motion and highlight key data that illustrate immunological consequences.
Peptide therapeutics market is expected to grow over the forecast period owing to the increasing prevalence of cancer and other various metabolic diseases. The other growth drivers of this market are introduction of technological advancements such as hybrid method of synthesis of peptides, lifestyle induced diseases such as obesity & diabetes, sophisticated healthcare infrastructure, increasing population and awareness. Peptides are referred as amide bonds which are linked with small chains of amino acid monomers. Peptides differ from protein on the basis of size. The presence of amino acids in peptides is less than 55 molecules. Peptides crunch themselves to some imitate such as receptor ligands and specific cell surface receptors.. As peptides act on cell membrane, so it helps peptides in treating various diseases. As the market has a huge potential, thus various biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries are developing new peptides that can be used for various purposes. So these companies ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Conformations of Gly(n)H+ and Ala(n)H+ peptides in the gas phase. AU - Hudgins, Robert R.. AU - Mao, Yi. AU - Ratner, Mark A.. AU - Jarrold, Martin F.. PY - 1999/1/1. Y1 - 1999/1/1. N2 - High-resolution ion mobility measurements and molecular dynamics simulations have been used to probe the conformations of protonated polyglycine and polyalanine (Gly(n)H+ and Ala(n)H+, n = 3-20) in the gas phase. The measured collision integrals for both the polyglycine and the polyalanine peptides are consistent with a self-solvated globule conformation, where the peptide chain wraps around and solvates the charge located on the terminal amine. The conformations of the small peptides are governed entirely by self-solvation, whereas the larger ones have additional backbone hydrogen bonds. Helical conformations, which are stable for neutral Ala(n) peptides, were not observed in the experiments. Molecular dynamics simulations for Ala(n)H+ peptides suggest that the charge destabilizes the helix, ...
Peptide splicing is a novel mechanism of production of peptides relying on the proteasome and involving the linkage of fragments originally distant in the parental protein. Peptides produced by splicing can be presented on class I molecules of the major histocompatibility complex and recognized by cytolytic T lymphocytes. Here, we describe a new antigenic peptide, which is presented by HLA-A3 and comprises two non-contiguous fragments of the melanoma differentiation antigen gp100PMEL17 spliced together in the reverse order to that in which they appear in the parental protein. Contrary to the previously described spliced peptides, which are produced by the association of fragments of 3 to 6 amino acids, the peptide described here results from the ultimate association of an 8-amino acid fragment with a single arginine residue. As described before, peptide splicing takes place in the proteasome by transpeptidation involving an acyl-enzyme intermediate linking one of the peptide fragment to a ...
BACKGROUND: Antigen-specific CD8 T cells following infection or immunization are typically assessed by measuring interferon-gamma production after stimulation with overlapping peptides spanning the region of interest. The effect of epitope location within such peptides is not known but may influence recognition. OBJECTIVE: To examine if peptides containing the appropriate C-terminal anchor amino acid residue would provide more sensitive detection of T cell responses. The impact was examined of epitope location within overlapping peptides on recognition of epitope-specific CD8 T cell responses. METHODS: C-terminal amino acid residues were analyzed in well-defined optimal epitopes for HIV, Epstein-Barr virus, cytomegalovirus and influenza and in peptide-binding motifs. Recognition of known epitopes within longer synthesized peptides by peripheral blood mononuclear cells or CD8 T cell lines was tested using interferon-gamma Elispot at various peptide concentrations. RESULTS: Only 9 of 20 amino acids served
Individual proteins can now often be modified with atomic precision, but there are still major obstacles to connecting proteins into larger assemblies. To direct protein assembly, ideally, peptide tags would be used, providing the minimal perturbation to protein function. However, binding to peptides is generally weak, so assemblies are unstable over time and disassemble with force or harsh conditions. We have recently developed an irreversible protein-peptide interaction (SpyTag/SpyCatcher), based on a protein domain from Streptococcus pyogenes, that locks itself together via spontaneous isopeptide bond formation. Here we develop irreversible peptide-peptide interaction, through redesign of this domain and genetic dissection into three parts: a protein domain termed SpyLigase, which now ligates two peptide tags to each other. All components expressed efficiently in Escherichia coli and peptide tags were reactive at the N terminus, at the C terminus, or at internal sites. Peptide-peptide ligation
Peptide-binding peptides can be a very powerful research tool. A novel methodology, based on the mechanism of bacteriophage l switch in E. coli and combinatorial screening, has been developed to isolate peptides that bind another target peptide in vivo. Two pairs of interacting peptides have been isolated and characterized. One of the potential applications of such peptide-binding peptides is to be utilized as protein purification tags. Another novel aspect of this research is that a candidate peptide is able to inhibit an enzyme-catalyzed protein hydrolysis by binding specifically to a peptide sequence on the substrate which is recognized by the protease. In other words, a novel concept of substrate-directed enzyme inhibitors has been developed ...
As shown below, the peptide array is directly synthesized on a membrane with a maximum capacity of 384 peptide dots. The membrane is then overlaid with a purified target protein, followed by immunoblotting to find the interaction between the target protein and selective peptide dots. The minimum peptide sequence sufficient to bind to the target protein is revealed by analyzing several adjacent dots that all show positive binding with the target protein. Selected peptide candidates will be linked with a membrane-permeable sequence (roughly 10 aa long) so that they can penetrate both the blood-brain barrier and the plasma membrane of cells. We have used this technique extensively to identify small peptide sequences (roughly 10 aa long) that can be applied for either interference of protein-protein interaction by binding to the interaction interface of target proteins or selective knockdown of endogenous proteins using our peptide-mediated protein knockdown technology.. ...

We recently reported on a new class of branched amphiphilic peptides that associate with double stranded DNA and promote in vitro transfection of eukaryotic cells. In the present study, we tested a different formulation in which plasmid DNA associates with the surface of preformed 20-30 nm cationic capsules formed through the self-assembly of the two branched amphiphilic peptides. Under these conditions, the negatively charged DNA interacts with the cationic surface of the Branched Amphiphilic Peptide Capsules (BAPCs) through numerous electrostatic interactions generating peptide-DNA complexes with sizes ranging from 50 to 250 nm. The BAPCs-DNA nanoparticles are capable of delivering plasmid DNA of different size into cells in culture, yielding high transfection rates and minimal cytotoxicity. Furthermore, BAPCs were tested for in vivo delivery of a DNA vaccine previously designed to activate immune responses and capable of controlling tumors induced by type 16 human papilloma virus (HPV-16). ...
Heat shock proteins (HSPs) released into the extra cellular environment via cell death or through vaccination are taken up by antigen presenting cells of the immune system. HSP-chaperoned peptides are then cross-presented for priming of specific T cell responses. Our goal is to identify the subset(s) of cells that sample HSPs in vivo and then initiate T cell priming. By introducing a fluorescent labeled HSP into mice, cells in the draining lymph node that engage extracellular HSP have been identified. Our data demonstrate that CD4+CD11c+ dendritic cells (DC) are the predominant cells that internalize the HSP, while CD8+CD11c+ DCs did not significantly internalize the HSP. The localization of these cells within the lymph node and their ability to prime T cells are examined. These studies illustrate how HSPs act to alert the immune system of cellular damage and will be useful for optimizing HSP-based vaccination regimes in clinical studies of cancer patients. ...
Ubiquitin contains eight primary amine sites including seven Lys and the N terminus. The reaction of ubiquitin with the NN reagent is very efficient, as evidenced by the ESI-mass spectrum of the protein after modification (see supplemental Figs. S2A and S2B). For ubiquitin, a 1:2 protein/NN ratio produced predominantly singly modified proteins with minor contributions of doubly and triply modified proteins. Subsequent tryptic digestion and LC-MS/MS analysis resulted in identification of nine unmodified peptides plus 14 modified peptides, the latter based on the characteristic N-N bond cleavage upon ETD followed by CID. The modified peptides were easily distinguished from unmodified peptides using ETD through the preferential cleavage of the NN bond (Fig. 2). This cleavage leads to a loss of 93 from all charge reduced species. In addition, sequential losses of 93 Da can be used to identify the number of modifications. For example, the N-terminal peptide for ubiquitin, MQIFVKTLTGK, has two ...
The availability of bioactive peptides in food sources is currently a topic of great interest, following recent reports of their health benefits. Although a field of great potential, there are also a large number of challenges surrounding the availability of peptides from food sources, as researchers in Canada have recently reported in a review article published in Trends in Food Science and Technology. Bioactive peptides comprise two or more amino acid residues and are typically made during breakdown of proteins by enzymes; this can happen during food processing, gastric digestion or during fermentation. However, lack of specificity during these processes makes prediction of the resulting bioactive peptides difficult; use of heat treatment during these processes can, in fact, lead to the production of peptides that could actually be harmful to human health. Traditional methods of bioactive peptide discovery build on pre-existing knowledge of proteins and enzymes to create databases of novel ...

Hydrocarbon stapled peptides have important potential in the development of peptide drugs. Peptides have high potency, high specificity and few side effects, but are rapidly degraded by protease enzymes. The hydrocarbon cross links of stapled peptides constrain the peptide in an a-helix conformation, favoring binding for peptides that bind to their receptor in an a-helix conformation. Additionally, in a helical structure, the polar amide backbone is less exposed producing greater resistance to protease enzymes and increased penetration of cell membranes. Double stapling of an HIV-1 fusion inhibitor greatly improved its pharmacokinetic properties, including oral availability. (1). STAPLED PEPTIDES AS POTENTIAL DRUG LEADS ...
Bioactive peptides, including biological sources-derived peptides with different biological activities, are protein fragments that influence the functions or conditions of organisms, in particular humans and animals. Conventional methods of identifying bioactive peptides are time-consuming and costly. To quicken the processes, several bioinformatics tools are recently used to facilitate screening of the potential peptides prior their activity assessment in vitro and/or in vivo. In this study, we developed an efficient computational method, SpirPep, which offers many advantages over the currently available tools. The SpirPep web application tool is a one-stop analysis and visualization facility to assist bioactive peptide discovery. The tool is equipped with 15 customized enzymes and 1-3 miscleavage options, which allows in silico digestion of protein sequences encoded by protein-coding genes from single, multiple, or genome-wide scaling, and then directly classifies the peptides by bioactivity using an
A method to obtain selected individual peptides or families thereof which have a target property and optionally to determine the amino acid sequence of a selected peptide or peptides to permit synthesis in practical quantities is disclosed. In general outline, the method of the invention comprises synthesizing a mixture of randomly or deliberately generated peptides using standard synthesis techniques, but adjusting the individual concentrations of the components of a mixture of sequentially added amino acids according to the coupling constants for each amino acid/amino acid coupling. The subgroup of peptides having the target property can then be selected, and either each peptide isolated and sequenced, or analysis performed on the mixture to permit its composition to be reproduced. Also included in the invention is an efficient method to determine the relevant coupling constants.

There is a very strong correlation between the affinity of peptide binding to MHC molecules and the capacity of the peptide to induce an immune response (31, 32). This information is critical to the strategy used in this study. The size of a peptide determines its capacity to bind class I MHC. Whereas the optimal peptide length for most murine MHC molecules appears to be 9-amino acid residues, the Kb and Kk molecules prefer 8-residue peptides (33). Kb molecules were initially chosen to define a glycopeptide that: (a) binds with high affinity; and (b) will be of a structure that skews the T cell response toward recognition of the carbohydrate moiety rather than toward either the peptide or the MHC molecule. The critical anchor residues for Kb binding have been canonically defined as phenylalanine (F) or tyrosine (Y) in position 5 and leucine (L) or methionine (M) at position 8 of an octamer peptide (8). The maintenance of critical hydrogen bonding between main chain atoms in the peptide and atoms ...
In the last few years, there has been a renewed interest in peptide therapeutics directed toward a wide range of indications, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, HIV and cancer. Peptides, compared to other small molecule drugs, offer increased specificity while potentially offering greater metabolic stability and oral availability than protein biologics. These peptide therapies can be manufactured using either recombinant methods or chemical synthesis alone or in combination. Recently, innovative synthesis methods have been described for generating long peptides that can be classified as proteins. For example, Provence Technologies recently synthesized IL-10, consisting of 160 amino acids. The FDA classifies any peptide produced synthetically containing over 100 amino acids as a protein. This blog outlines the three elements that affect costs of producing a peptide therapeutic.. First, a critical factor in the cost of peptides made by chemical synthesis is the product yield per amino ...

The main benefit of natural peptides, peptide analogs and newly designed peptides as therapeutics, lies in their high selectivity and affinity, which are frequently in the nanomolar range. New drugs targeting protein-protein interactions often require larger interaction sites than small molecules can offer. Thus, many peptidic drugs are already applied in therapy at the current state. The next generation of peptide-based therapeutic agents is currently on its way from basic research to clinical studies and eventually to the pharmaceutical market. Development of more robust and long-lasting drugs owing to well-known and new stabilization strategies is yielding novel and continuously improving peptide drugs. The introduction of smart linkers that exhibit stability towards blood plasma but intracellular lability will lead to target-oriented activity, which might successfully decrease side effects. In this review, peptidic therapeutics on the market, in clinical studies and some of those in basic research

In many cases, peptides hormones are initially synthesized on the ribosomes of the endocrine cells as larger proteins known as preprohormones, which are then cleaved to prohormones by proteolytic enzymes in the rough endoplasmic reticulum. The prohormone is then packaged into secretory vesicles by the Golgi apparatus. In this process, the prohormone is cleaved to yield the active hormone and other peptide chains found in the prohormone. Therefore, when the cell is stimulated to release the contents of the secretory vesicles by exocytosis, the other peptides are co-secreted with the hormone. In certain cases they, too, may exert hormonal effects. In other words, instead of just one peptide hormone, the cell may be secreting multiple peptide hormones that differ in their effects on target cells. ...

Peptides (from Gr. πεπτός, "digested", derived from πέσσειν, "to digest") are biologically occurring short chains of amino acid monomers linked by peptide (amide) bonds.. The covalent chemical bonds are formed when the carboxyl group of one amino acid reacts with the amine group of another. The shortest peptides are dipeptides, consisting of 2 amino acids joined by a single peptide bond, followed by tripeptides, tetrapeptides, etc. A polypeptide is a long, continuous, and unbranched peptide chain. Hence, peptides fall under the broad chemical classes of biological oligomers and polymers, alongside nucleic acids, oligosaccharides and polysaccharides, etc.. ...

This is the largest study to date utilizing U15N-labeled proteins as internal standards for protein quantification. The U15N-labeled proteins were expressed and purified using the same process as the unlabeled proteins used in this study and, in all regards, should behave quite similarly. An added benefit to using heavy-labeled proteins as internal standards is the ability to monitor multiple peptides from each protein. In cases where digestion is incomplete, resulting in missed cleaved peptides, or in cases where additional peptides from the protein would strengthen the statistics of the measurement, as long as the heavy-labeled protein behaves the same way as the endogenous protein, the additional peptide forms can be readily monitored. Such experiments are especially tractable using instruments with high resolution, accurate mass capabilities where the accurate mass measurement of the precursor and the fragments significantly improve the confidence of the analyses, and selection and ...

Recent approaches to constraining peptide sequences into more structurally-defined α- helical secondary structures, so-called peptide stapling, are discussed. Stapled peptides are a class of therapeutics that have been shown to more effectively target protein-protein interactions, which are harder to target using a classical small-molecule therapeutic approach. Stapling a peptide constrains it into a well-defined secondary structure. This more accurately mimics the protein-protein interaction making the peptide a more viable therapeutic. Starting from the p53-MDM2 interaction, a protein-protein interaction with important implications in cell health, a known peptidyl inhibitor of this interaction was stapled and analysed for increased α-helicity. This was achieved by using monomers that utilise the copper (I) alkyne azide cycloaddition as a cross-linking methodology, which has been less well researched in the context of peptide stapling. The viability of a novel stapled peptomer inhibitor ...
The conventional wisdom is that certain classes of bioactive peptides have specific structural features that endow their particular functions. Accordingly, predictions of bioactivity have focused on particular subgroups, such as antimicrobial peptides. We hypothesized that bioactive peptides may share more general features, and assessed this by contrasting the predictive power of existing antimicrobial predictors as well as a novel general predictor, PeptideRanker, across different classes of peptides. We observed that existing antimicrobial predictors had reasonable predictive power to identify peptides of certain other classes i.e. toxin and venom peptides. We trained two general predictors of peptide bioactivity, one focused on short peptides (4-20 amino acids) and one focused on long peptides ( amino acids). These general predictors had performance that was typically as good as, or better than, that of specific predictors. We noted some striking differences in the features of short peptide and long

Hello to all of you! Does anybody have experience with in vitro peptide synthesis? Im using the Promega TNT-T7 Quick coupled translation-transcription kit in order to obtain the protein translation of PCR fragments from human genomic DNA (PTT, protein truncation test; size fragments: about 1300 bp; gene: exon 11 of BRCA1). Each forward primer contains the T7 promoter sequence and a eukaryotic translation initiation sequence. After synthesis, the products are analyzed by 12% SDS-PAGE and autoradiography. My problems: 1) the size of translated peptide its larger than expected (about 65 kD vs 50 kD) 2) an unexpected, high molecular weight peptide - about 85 kD - appears on the autoradiography Any suggestion is welcome..

Introduction: Several MHC class I HER2-derived peptides have been identified that elicit a peptide-specific, cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) response. We have postulated that Trastuzumab (Tz) binding may protect or modulate enzymatic cleavage sites on HER2 normally accessible by proteasomes thereby altering the cleavage pattern and resulting peptide profile. We have previously reported that Tz-treated breast cancer cells are recognized and killed more efficiently than untreated cells by T cells stimulated with the HER2-derived peptide E75 (aa:369-377). In the current study, we show that unique peptides may be located within the Tz binding sequence and that treatment with Tz may generate novel immunogenic peptides that could be used as vaccines in combination immunotherapy.. Methods: The binding site of Tz on the HER2 protein was analyzed for HLA-A2 binding peptides. Five nonameric peptides were identified, synthesized and tested. HLA-stabilization assays using T2 cells were performed to confirm ...
Figure: Shotgun mass spectrometry. 1) Proteins are digested with an enzyme to produce peptides, 2) the peptides are separated via HPLC, 3) the peptides are ionized by electrospray and 4) intact peptide ion intensities are used to calculate abundance and time-of-flight analysis is used to measure mass/charge ratios of the peptides and peptide fragments for identification via database comparisons. The mass spectrometer measures the mass-to-charge (m/z) ratio of the ionized peptides and peptide fragments, and peptides can then be identified by comparison of the m/z values with those in a protein database which has been subjected to virtual proteolysis. The main advantage of this method is the ability to detect more difficult classes of proteins which are not detectable by traditionally-used two-dimensional gel electrophoresis approaches. ...

Does anybody remember a good method of precipitation of peptides, preferably using organic solvents (for easy liophylization later)? I have a bunch of hydrophobic peptides (weakly soluble in H2O - up to ~ 0.5-1 mg/ml, almost freely soluble in DMSO, acetone, etc.) I would like to re-crystallize to remove impurities (salts, by-products of synthesis, etc.), without losing too much of material, and avoiding any harsh treatments like TCA precipitation that may modify residues. Solubilization in e.g., acetone with subsequent precipitation with water is not a solution, because of partial solubility in water. HPLC is not quick enough, because I need a lot of peptide and as quick as possible, and HPLC (semi-preparative column) can yield ~ ,10mg/run of peptide (need to recrystallize 5 x 500 mg peptides). Thanks for ideas. Emir Khatipov University of Chicago ...
Enzymatic digestion of proteins generates biologically active peptides which can be concentrated by filtration with the appropriate membranes. This work uses a hydrolysate derived from the New Zealand geoduck Panopea zelandica and compares the effectiveness of membranes with varying molecular weight cut-offs (MWCOs) and surface charges for carrying out selective separations of the peptides. A membrane with a MWCO of 2.5 kDa was found to be most effective for obtaining the greatest differences between the permeate and retentate from the membranes when separating by size alone. For separating peptides based on charge the choice of membrane and pH was important. The results obtained suggested that each hydrolysate has different optimum conditions for achieving separation. A challenge when analysing the effects of membranes on peptide mixtures is quantifying the changes that have occurred. The work presented here introduced a multivariate approach to interpretation of complete sets of HPLC data that ...
Human CD4\(^+\) T cells process and present functional class II MHC-peptide complexes, but the endogenous peptide repertoire of these non-classical antigen presenting cells remains unknown. We eluted and sequenced HLA-DR-bound self-peptides presented by CD4\(^+\) T cells in order to compare the T cell-derived peptide repertoire to sequences derived from genetically identical B cells. We identified several novel epitopes derived from the T cell-specific proteome, including fragments of CD4 and IL-2. While these data confirm that T cells can present peptides derived from the T-cell specific proteome, the vast majority of peptides sequenced after elution from MHC were derived from the common proteome. From this pool, we identified several identical peptide epitopes in the T and B cell repertoire derived from common endogenous proteins as well as novel endogenous epitopes with promiscuous binding. These findings indicate that the endogenous HLA-DR-bound peptide repertoire, regardless of APC type and ...

The purpose of this study was to extend the previous immunoproteomic identification of peptide antigens from human ovarian cancer cells by showing their relevance in activating tumor-specific T cells in vitro and in vivo. The broad application of these peptide antigens was supported by the demonstration that peptide-specific T cells could be activated that could recognize HLA-matched ovarian and breast cancer cells, but not normal cells with comparable HLA-A2 expression.. We observed that peptides originally identified from ovarian cancer-derived pools of HLA-A2 associated peptides could be formulated into combinations of peptides that induced immune responses as potent as those induced by single peptides. This observation permitted us to combine peptides into pools, first combining 6 peptides at a time into mixture and then later combining all 12 peptides into a single mixture. We then conducted 2 parallel pilot trials of 2 dose levels of the peptides combined with Montanide and GM-CSF and ...
We have recently identified (a) ectocalreticulin as the main source of immunogenicity of cancer cell death induced by chemotherapy or radiotherapy, (b) ectoERP57 as critical protein for inducing cell surface exposure of calreticulin, and (c) that ectoERP57 and ectocalreticulin are cotranslocated together to the tumor cell surface by the mediator of the inhibition of PP1/GADD34 complex. Here, I report that the immunogenicity of cancer cell death induced by anticancer targeted proapoptotic peptides is also dictated by ectocalreticulin. To improve the anticancer activity of these proapoptotic peptides, I have designed several targeted chimeric inhibitor peptides of the PP1/GADD34 complex, which are comprised of an inhibitor peptide of the PP1/GADD34 complex fused to a protein transduction domain-5, to prostate homing peptide, or to the tumor antigen BiP/GRP78-binding peptide motifs. These inhibitor peptides (a) induce ectocalreticulin and ectoERP57 in a variety of tumor cell lines by the mediator ...
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): 4E10 is a monoclonal antibody that was derived from the B cells of a patient with persistent HIV infections. In vitro and in vivo, 4E10 neutralizes a wide variety of HIV and SHIV strains. As such, an immunogen that elicits 4E10-like antibody responses in humans would be a huge advance toward the goal of designing a safe and effective vaccine against HIV. Although the epitope for 4E10 was found to be a six amino acid peptide (NWFNIT) from the fusogenic domain of gp41, attempts to use this peptide as an immunogen to elicit antibodies that mimic the HIV neutralizing activity of 4E10 have been totally unsuccessful. This result indicates that antigen presentation is possibly the missing link that lies between immunization with NWFNIT-containing immunogens and the successful elicitation of 4E10-like antibodies in vivo. For over a decade we have been developing methods in peptide chemistry to induce linear synthetic peptides to assume new conformations. The ...

We set out to clone Bax-specific CD8+ T cells from peripheral blood sam- ples of patients with primary chronic lymphocytic leukaemia. A number of clones were generated using a Bax peptide pool and their T-cell epitope was mapped to two peptides sharing a common 9-amino-acid sequence (LLSYFGTPT), restricted by HLA-A*0201. However, when these T-cell clones were tested against highly purified syntheses (, 95%) of the same peptide sequence, there was no functional response. Subsequent mass spectrometric analysis and HPLC fractionation suggested that the active component in the original crude peptide preparations (77% pure) was a peptide with a tert-butyl (tBu) modification of the tyrosine residue. This was confirmed by modification of the inactive wild-type sequence to gen- erate functionally active peptides. Computer modelling of peptide:HLA- A*0201 structures predicted that the tBu modification would not affect interactions between peptide residues and the HLA binding site. However, these models ...

Researchers are approaching the battle against Alzheimers with a number of strategies. "Our approach is to try to find small peptides that will prevent the amyloid peptide from being toxic, and render it harmless," Professor Ingram said.. To do this, the researchers selected from a combinatorial library a series of peptides with various interesting properties. Peptides are natural or synthetic compounds of two or more linked amino acids, the most basic building blocks of life.. Professor Ingram and his research team created 30 small peptides, each between five and eight amino acids long, and tested them with lab-cultured human nerve cells. Some had no effect. Eight of them counteracted the excessive, toxic influx of calcium, knocking it down to normal levels. "In the presence of the decoy peptide, the final product of the aggregate is not toxic," he said. The fibrils still form, but are harmless and do not affect internal calcium levels in the cells.. Because they are small and can be modified ...

Residues within processed protein fragments bound to major histocompatibility complex class I (MHC-I) glycoproteins have been considered to function as a series of "independent pegs" that either anchor the peptide (p) to the MHC-I and/or interact with the spectrum of alphabeta-T-cell receptors (TCRs) specific for the pMHC-I epitope in question. Mining of the extensive pMHC-I structural database established that many self- and viral peptides show extensive and direct interresidue interactions, an unexpected finding that has led us to the idea of "constrained" peptides. Mutational analysis of two constrained peptides (the HLA B44 restricted self-peptide (B44DPalpha-EEFGRAFSF) and an H2-D(b) restricted influenza peptide (D(b)PA, SSLENFRAYV) demonstrated that the conformation of the prominently exposed arginine in both peptides was governed by interactions with MHC-I-orientated flanking residues from the peptide itself. Using reverse genetics in a murine influenza model, we revealed that mutation of ...
