Lactam Peptides

Lactam bonds in peptides refer to the side-chain of lysine forming an amide bond with the side-chain of glutamate or aspartate. This structural feature can be applied to peptides for stablizing alpha helices, and can also act as a substitute for the less-stable disulfide bonds through the use of diaminopropionic acid / aspartate. With expertise in the latest peptide synthesis techniques, Biopeptek can supply peptides with multiple lactam bridges.
