Study Results from Research Center Provide New Insights into Proteomics (A peptide & peptide nucleic acid synthesis technology for transporter molecules and theranostics--the SPPS)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Investigators publish new report on Proteomics. According to news reporting originating from Heidelberg, Germany, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Advances in imaging diagnostics using magnetic resonance tomography (MRT), positron emission tomography (PET) and fluorescence imaging including near infrared (NIR) imaging methods are facilitated by constant improvement of the concepts of peptide synthesis. Feasible patient-specific theranostic platforms in the personalized medicine are particularly dependent on efficient and clinically applicable peptide constructs."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Research Center, "The role of peptides in the interrelations between the structure and function of proteins is widely investigated, especially by using computer-assisted methods. Nowadays the solid phase synthesis (SPPS) chemistry emerges as a key technology and is considered as a promising methodology to design peptides for the investigation of molecular pharmacological processes at the transcriptional level."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "SPPS syntheses could be carried out in core facilities producing peptides for large-scale scientific implementations as presented here."
