Thoroughly updated, incorporating around 25 % new material, Sewald/Jakubke remains the only modern and scientifically up-to-date advanced textbook on peptide biochemistry, distilling the knowledge of hundreds of publications into a highly readable synopsis of this diverse field. The authors explain the broad fundamentals of peptide synthesis and structure, systematically addressing important families of biologically active peptides, and adopting an interdisciplinary approach that covers application areas in biotechnology, pharmaceutical science, and biomedicine. One major focus is on such "hot" research topics as pseudopeptides, peptidomimetics, and combinatorial synthesis. This new edition also features study questions for each learning unit, for easier self-study and classroom teaching.

These proceedings of the Twelfth American Peptide Symposium include 363 articles which were selected for publication on the basis of originality, timeliness and scientific significance. This volume includes contributions on ppetide hormones, neuropeptides, lipid-interactive peptides, peptide and protein conformation, de novo design, structure-activity relationships, synthetic methods, large-scale peptide synthesis, viruses and vaccines, peptide mimetics, peptide inhibitors, immunology and new biologically active peptides.
From the first and second sessions on peptide hormones and neuropeptides, one can gain an appreciation of the role to be fulfilled by peptide hormone analogs in medicine. There does not seem to be a single bioactive peptide family for which a therapeutic role is not envisioned at this time. Most interesting is the fact that short analogs as well as cyclic analogs, with structures that are often quite dissimilar from that of the parent native hormone, are being considered as potential drugs. Increased potency and duration of action generally result from these structural modifications. In the third session, emphasis is put on one's recognition of the ever-growing role of lipid membranes in modulating biological expression. Refinement of one's understanding of the bioactive conformation of a peptide is paramount for allowing rational design. Only sophisticated techniques such as NMR in different solvent systems, coupled to molecular modeling in different environments, and X-ray crystallography will yield the information needed to gain an appreciation of the bioactive conformation of a peptide.
