Selective Bindings

In work published in Angewandte Chemie, researchers in the Wennemers Group present functionalized proline-rich peptides that bind c-di-GMP in aqueous solution. They also show that the functionalized...

Scientific Formulas

Cleavage Methodology

Natural product discovery has been at the root of modern drug design, and it continues to play a vital role as there is renewed focus on orally available peptide therapeutics. In particular, macrocyclic peptides...

Scientific Diagram

Influencing Self-Assembly

Amphipathic peptides with alternating polar and nonpolar amino acid sequences efficiently selfassemble into functional β-sheet fibrils as long as the nonpolar residues have sufficient hydrophobicity...


Science Diagram

Mutational Scanning

High-resolution structure-activity analysis of polypeptides requires amino acid structures that are not present in the universal genetic code. Examination of peptide and protein...

Inhibitor Resistance

Although EGFR is a highly sought-after drug target, inhibitor resistance remains a challenge. As an alternative strategy for kinase inhibition, researchers in the...

The Marcotte Group

Protein Identification

The identification and quantification of proteins lags behind DNA-sequencing methods in scale, sensitivity, and dynamic range. In work published in Nature Biotechnology, researchers in the Marcotte Lab we show that sparse...

Join Us for the 26th APS!

Monterey Coast

If you thought Whistler, BC was awesome, wait until you see what we have planned for you in Monterey, California in 2019!

We will hold our 26th biennial Symposium from June 22nd until June 27th, 2019, at the luxurious Portola Hotel and Conference Center at Monterey Bay. Now is the time to submit an abstract, become a sponsor or register as an exhibitor.  We would love for you to join us!

Book Contributors Needed


Former APS President, Ben Dunn, has been asked to develop a new edition of the John Wiley & Sons book titled "Peptide Chemistry and Drug Design".  He is seeking interested contributors or even another scientist to take over as editior of the new edition of this book.  If you are interested in helping or would like more information, please contact the APS office at (apsoffice17@gmail.com).
