Abstract

The study and diverse applications of bioactive peptides traverse many sub-disciplines within chemistry, biology, physics, and medicine. Answering a long-standing need, Bioactive Peptides focuses on the biology, pharmacology, and therapeutic applications of endogenous peptide mediators and their analogues. Moving peptide science beyond chemical synthesis strategies and into the realms of peptide biology and therapeutics, it presents the overall contribution that peptide science has made to molecular, cellular, and whole organism biology, while also discussing future targets and therapeutic applications. Parts III and IV investigate the unique bioactivities of various peptides that are ripe for further exploration
