Peptide synthesis plays an essential role in biopharmaceutical applications and development. Each step in the process is distinct and may require customization for efficacy. We’ll explore peptide synthesis, why it’s important, and what to know.
Drug Discovery and Development
Drug discovery and development is a primary application for peptide synthesis. The approach allows the peptides of interest to leverage cellular functions for disease treatment and prevention. Reputable production labs use custom DNA synthesis services to develop a distinct genetic sequence, which undergoes variable transition phases. Each one achieves peptide efficacy and viability for the end user.
The most well-known peptide drug discovery is currently used to evolve HIV treatment and prevention with pre-exposed prophylaxis peptides. Cancer medication and drug treatment plans also focus on peptide-based approaches because the customization process enables distinct outcomes.
Monitoring the Peptide Production Process
Monitoring the peptide production process is important for peptide synthesis. The primary focuses include studying the cell signals, regulating enzymes, and understanding the immune response from the peptide of interest. The lab working on the peptide case will follow the production phases closely so the synthesis process can achieve high-quality yields.
Over 300 peptide modifications are available within the standard synthesizing process, and the lab will collaborate with you to ensure the correct selection. Common modifications include Acetylation, Biotinylation, Phosphorylation, and unnatural amino acids. Note there may be additional fees based on modification structure and type.
The Methods for Peptide Synthesis
Two methods for peptide synthesis include solid phase and liquid phase. The solid phase is the most common approach and includes the addition of amino acids to ensure solid support.
Bon Opus Biosciences uses the standard peptide synthesis approach with solid-phase integration and access to our comprehensive library of modifications and amino acids. The delivery time for this method is two weeks, depending on outcomes, efficacy, and collaboration tactics. We also feature a library of peptides to begin the synthesis process, where we can synthesize up to 98 peptides simultaneously.
It’s important to know what you can expect from peptide synthesis and the primary objectives for the process. Partnering with a reputable molecular biology laboratory like Bon Opus can offer you access to an expert team and workflow designed with your needs in mind.
