Furthering efforts to simulate the potency and specificity exhibited by peptides and proteins in healthy cells, this remarkable reference supplies pharmaceutical scientists with a wealth of techniques for tapping the enormous therapeutic potential of these molecules-providing a solid basis of knowledge for new drug design.

Provides a broad, comprehensive overview of peptides and proteins as mediators of cell movement, proliferation, differentiation, and communication.

Written by more than 50 leading international authorities, Peptides and Protein Drug Analysis

  • discusses strategies for dealing with the complexity of peptides and proteins in conformational flexibility and amino acid sequence variability

  • analyzes drug formulations facilitated by solid-phase peptide synthesis and recombinant DNA technology

  • examines chemical purity analysis by high-pressure chromatographic, capillary electrophoretic, gel electrophoretic, and isoelectric focusing methods

  • highlights drug design elements derived from protein folding, bioinformatics, and computational chemistry

  • demonstrates uses of unnatural mutagenesis and combinatorial chemistry

  • explores mass spectrometry, protein sequence, and carbohydrate analysis

  • illustrates bioassays and other new functional analysis methods

  • surveys spectroscopic techniques such as ultraviolet, fluorescence, Fourier transform infrared, and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)

  • addresses ways of distinguishing between levels of therapeutic and endogenous agents in cells

  • reviews structural analysis tools such as ultracentrifugation and light, X-ray, and neutron scattering

  • and more!

    Featuring over 3400 bibliographic citations and more than 500 tables, equations, and illustrations, Peptide and Protein Drug Analysis is a must-read resource for pharmacists; pharmacologists; analytical, organic, and pharmaceutical chemis
