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

By Yoshimitsu Hamano

Microorganisms are in a position to generating a wide selection of biopolymers. Homopolymer peptides, that are made of just a unmarried form of amino acid, are a ways much less ubiquitous. the one amino-acid homopolymers identified to ensue in nature are offered during this quantity.
Poly-epsilon-L-lysine is a polycationic peptide and shows antimicrobial job opposed to a large spectrum of microorganisms. it truly is either secure and biodegradable and is accordingly used as a foodstuff preservative in numerous nations. moreover, 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 variety of medications. those gains are very helpful for pharmaceutical and biomedical functions. Poly-glutamic acid is usually a hugely beautiful as a nutrition ingredient.
