Cyclic Peptides: From Bioorganic Synthesis to Applications (Chemical Biology) 1st Edition
Cyclic peptides are increasingly being employed as a chemical tool in biology and drug discovery. This book provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of the synthesis and applications of these useful molecules. Following an introduction to cyclic peptides, biosynthetic and traditional chemical routes to cyclic peptides are reviewed, analysis of cyclic peptides is discussed and, finally, a number of chapters are dedicated to their applications. A timely collection of chapters by leading researchers in the field, this book will be an essential resource for students, researchers and industrialists in medicinal, bioorganic, natural product and analytical chemistry.
