Neoglycolipids for Prolonging the Effects of Peptides: Self-Assembling Glucagon-like Peptide 1 Analogues with Albumin Binding Properties and Potent in Vivo Efficacy

Novel principles for optimizing the properties of peptide-based drugs are needed in order to leverage their full pharmacological potential. We present the design, synthesis, and evaluation of a library of neoglycolipidated glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) analogues, which are valuable drug…
