Bachem offers for free a series of flyers on selected groups of products in peptide research.


LL-37 Peptides
The antimicrobial 37-mer peptide LL-37, the only human member of the cathelicidin family, and its fragments have been extensively studied, as the peptides also show antiviral and angiogenic activities. Recently, LL-37 gained interest in cancer research by showing therapeutic potential. The core sequence of the peptide, residues 12-29, forms an amphiphilic α-helix. The antibacterial activity of LL-37 fragments correlates with their α-helical content.

Labeled Peptides
Besides biotinylation, incorporation of fluorophores, heavy isotope-containing amino acids, or reporter groups as fluorine are standard methods for labeling peptides. The incorporation of unsaturated amino acids allows radiolabeling by tritiation.

The long-acting somatostatin agonist Lanreotide (INN) was initially developed for the management of acromegaly, for which it has been approved in many countries. Consecutive studies showed that lanreotide alleviates symptoms caused by neuroendocrine tumors, most notably carcinoid syndrome, and can serve as an alternative to octreotide in this field. Interestingly, lanreotide also shows activity against non-endocrine tumors, and, along with other somatostatin analogs, is being studied as a possible general anti-tumor agent.

Mass Spectrometry
Besides established peptide mass standards for calibration as angiotensin I and II we offer a large choice of short and mediumsized peptides, all available from stock in different pack sizes. We also provide phosphorylated and sulfated peptides.

Modified Peptides
Glycosylation, lipidation, phosphorylation and sulfation are frequently occurring posttranslational modifications of proteins and peptides. These molecules may show biological activity only after they have been modified in such a manner by specialized enzymes. For the chemical synthesis of modified peptides, suitably protected building blocks have been developed.

Molecular Imaging
Molecular imaging probes are important tools in nuclear medicine. Early disease detection, characterization and monitoring of disease progression and therapeutic responses are the main applications.

Peptides can spontaneously self-assemble to form ordered structures such as nanotubes or hydrogels, which makes then potential tools for areas as biomedical nanotechnology and cell culturing. Diphenylalanine, Phe-Phe, is the most prominent example for a nanotube-forming dipeptide. We are pleased to present a selection of our selfassembling dipeptides and further products of interest.
