Download Amino-Acid Homopolymers Occurring in Nature: 15 by Yoshimitsu Hamano PDF

By Yoshimitsu Hamano

Microorganisms are able to generating a large choice of biopolymers. Homopolymer peptides, that are made from just a unmarried form of amino acid, are a ways much less ubiquitous. the one amino-acid homopolymers identified to happen in nature are awarded during this quantity.
Poly-epsilon-L-lysine is a polycationic peptide and indicates antimicrobial job opposed to a large spectrum of microorganisms. it really is either secure and biodegradable and is accordingly used as a meals preservative in numerous nations. additionally, there was nice curiosity in scientific and different purposes of poly-lysine and its derivatives.
In distinction, poly-gamma-glutamic acid is an strange anionic polypeptide. it's also water soluble, biodegradable, fit for human consumption, non-toxic and non-immunogenic and will be chemically changed to introduce a number of medicinal drugs. those beneficial properties are very worthy for pharmaceutical and biomedical functions. Poly-glutamic acid is usually a hugely beautiful as a foodstuff ingredient.
