Useful “Fake” Peptides

Oligourea foldamers mimic peptides’ alpha-helices and effectively bind to drug targets

09-Dec-2020

Some useful drugs consist of peptides acting on their protein targets. To make them more efficient and stable, scientists have found a way to replace crucial segments of the peptides with ureido units. These oligoureas, which are composed of urea-based units, fold into a structure similar to that ...

A novel strategy to generate useful chiral compounds

Newly designed ligands for a catalytic reaction to synthesize drugs and useful compounds

01-Jul-2020

Currently, various therapeutic compounds in the market, such as proteins, enzymes, and amino acids, are "chiral compounds"--molecules with two structures that are "mirror" images of each other but cannot be superimposed. Although the two variants of the molecule, also called "enantiomers," are ...

Chemists show it's hip to be square

Their synthetic azetidines could help simplify drug design for neurological diseases

13-Aug-2019

Rice University chemists want to make a point: Nitrogen atoms are for squares. The nitrogens are the point. The squares are the frames that carry them. These molecules are called azetidines, and they can be used as building blocks in drug design. The Rice lab of chemist László Kürti introduced ...
