Peptide conjugates

Peptide and protein conjugates hold a prominent position in the area of bioconjugate chemistry. They have been the subject of intensive studies over the years, because of their high potential in, for example, the biomedical field. Furthermore, their functional richness and structural vulnerability makes efficient and selective conjugation of these biomolecules often a real endeavor.Peptides and peptide-conjugates, comprising natural and synthetic building blocks, are an increasingly popular class of biomaterials.Peptide/protein-polymer conjugates make up a new class of soft matter comprising natural and synthetic building blocks.They have the potential to combine the advantages of proteins and synthetic polymers (i.e., the precise chemical structure and diverse functionalities of biomolecules and the stability and processability of synthetic polymers) to generate hybrid materials with properties yet to be realized with either component alone.
