Counter ion: Trifluoacetate
Format: Lyophilized powder
Description: EAR8-II (Ac-AEAEARAR-NH2) is a unique amphiphilic structure (Figure 1) of eight amino acids, including Glutamic acid (E), Alanine (A), and Arginine (R). Negatively charged Glutamic acid and positively charged Arginine residues are positioned in the first and second block of the sequence, providing ionic-complementarity. Alanine residues with hydrophobic side chains are located alternatively through the sequence, offering hydrophobic properties to the peptide as a whole. Self/co-assembly characteristics of this peptide arise from its ionic pairs (E and R), and hydrophobic pairs (A) that both promote self-assembly in peptides as well as co-assembly with hydrophobic molecules such as Pirarubicin (THP).
