Analogous to peptides, non-natural poly(N-substituted glycine) “peptoids” exhibit self-assembly properties and bioactivity that are encoded by the ordering of monomer residues into specific sequences along their polymer backbone. Peptoids differ from peptides in the shift of the sidechain attachment to the backbone amide-nitrogen atoms. They are resistant to protease degradation and have simplified intermolecular interactions.
Join K.H Aaron Lau, PhD, Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) from the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry at the University of Strathclyde in a live webinar on Friday, November 15, 2019 at 11am EST (4pm GMT/UK) to hear about recent efforts in exploring solid-phase synthesized peptoids for applications beyond their conventional use in combinatorial drug discovery.
Specific topics include:
- An overview of non-natural poly(N-substituted glycine) peptoids
- Applications of solid-phase synthesized peptoids in combinatorial drug discovery
- Novel properties:
- Self-assembling peptoid motifs
- “Stealth” surface-grafted peptoid brushes
- Sequence modifications for biomedical surface applications
- Self-assembling peptoid nanosheets
Selected peptoids have been synthesized with a Prelude® X peptide synthesizer.
