What Are Peptides?

What Are Peptides?

A peptide is a molecule made up of two or more amino acids linked together by peptide bonds. It can also be defined as a polymer formed by binding amino acid subunits. A peptide molecule can be biologically active alone or can act as a subunit for a larger molecule. Proteins are essentially very large peptides, often consisting of several peptide subunits. Peptides are important in biology, chemistry, and medicine because they are blocks of hormones, toxins, proteins, enzymes, cells, and body tissue.

Peptides are biologically and medically important molecules. They occur naturally inside organisms, and compounds synthesized in the laboratory are active when introduced into a body. Peptides act as structural components of cells and tissues, hormones, toxins, antibiotics, and enzymes. Examples of peptides include the hormone oxytocin, glutathione (stimulates tissue growth), melittin (bee venom), the pancreatic hormone insulin, and glucagon (a hyperglycemic factor).

Any disease is a pathology of the cell. Thus, it is crucial for the body to obtain a constant supply of peptides. Once in the cell, the peptides accelerate the process of protein biosynthesis by interacting with cellular DNA. Despite their size, these small chains are vital biological entities capable of stimulating the process of cell regeneration, activating the body’s resources, preventing disease and inflammation, and aging. They are non-toxic and do not cause allergies.

Mod GRF 1-29 (CJC-1295 NO DAC) (5mg)

Mod GRF 1-29 (CJC-1295 NO DAC)

Mod GRF (1-29) is known as a synthetic peptide analog of growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH). In the 1980s, research supports that the first 29 amino acids of GHRH had the entirety of biological capacities associated with the full-length 44 residue proteins. This means GRF 1-29, the shortest segment of GHRH, possesses all of the properties of a full-length hormone.
Even if GRF is considered biologically strong as GHRH, the difference comes when discussing the duration of action. Its action is limited due to its half-life of only 10 minutes, so researchers have decided to alter it to enhance its duration of action and add a better therapeutic potential.

How Are Research Peptides Used?

How Are Research Peptides Used?

Research Peptides are essential peptides used for scientific research. They are deemed safe and work well in patients or subjects. They have also been accepted as an effective and practical therapeutic application. This has caused research peptides to become highly disabled in pharmaceutical research and development as it produces the potential for medical and experiment uses. There is a considerable need for them to enhance progress in those two areas.

Research Peptides As Restorative Medicine

Peptides have a crucial role in the human body. The 7000 naturally peptides effect:
1. Hormones
2. growth factors
3. neurotransmitters
4. ion channel ligands
5. Anti-infectives
Peptides are essential and successful in sending molecules to bind to cell surface receptors. Once the molecule reaches its receptor, it causes intracellular effects. Peptides have proven to be safe and bearable in clinical subjects. It also maintains high selectivity, potency, and a predictable metabolism. Therefore, research peptides show immense potential for growth for therapeutic development.

Metabolic diseases and oncology are fueling peptides-based research currently. In the past few years, there has been a surge in obesity and type 2 diabetes globally but specifically in North America. Due to this rise, researchers immersed themselves in the development of peptides therapeutics in order to treat these conditions. There has been a call to find new methods–with peptide research– to treat cancer due to increased mortality rates from Chemotherapy. Not only is oncology and metabolic an area where peptide research has overtaken, but it has also reached infectious diseases, inflammation, and rare disease. Peptide research has also proven to aid in Diagnostics and vaccination as well. Moreover, they need to be in experiments and developmental laboratories so that future research and studies can uncover the true therapeutic potentials of peptides in future medicines.

Are Research Peptides Replacing Medicine?

One can only use research peptides for in-vitro studies (outside the body experiments) or experimentations. While many peptide therapeutics are being tested, researchers and scientists worldwide are using research peptides in a lab setting. In this lab setting, they want to investigate areas of the peptide they have not looked at before by pushing the boundaries on research peptides for pharmaceutical use. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved over 60 peptide-based medicines. Two such examples are:
1. LupronTM, which is used to treat prostate cancer
2. VictozaTM, which is used to treat type 2 diabetes
However, it is important to note that these FDA- approved drugs are not research peptides. These drugs are medicines that healthcare professionals may prescribe to treat specific conditions or diseases.

Research Peptides are only used for in-vitro studies or research and are not FDA approved for any medical use (treatment, prevention, curing). They may only become medicines when they have undergone many meticulous clinical trials and have the stamp of approval from the FDA.

Understanding Peptide Bonds

How Is A Peptide Bond Created?

When two amino acids form a covalent bond, it creates a peptide bond. The Carboxyl group of one amino acid will react with the second amino group of the other amino acid. This essentially forms a peptide bond. Due to this process, a molecule (amide) filled with water is released, and this reaction is known as a condensation reaction. This creates the peptide bond (CO-NH bond).

Now how exactly are peptide bonds formed? Firstly, the amino acids needed must be oriented. This is so that the carboxylic acid group from the amino acid can react with the other amino acids amine. These create a dipeptide which we know as the smallest peptide composed of two amino acids.

It is important to note that new peptides can also be formed by amino acids joining together in chains. To be considered a peptide, there must be 50 or less amino acids connected. To be considered a polypeptide, there must be about 50 to 100 amino acids connected and if there are over 100 amino acids connected, that would be called a protein.

A peptide bond can be broken down from hydrolysis. Hydrolysis is a result of a chemical breakdown reaction to water. This reaction is unhurried, and the peptide bonds, which can be formed in three ways (peptides, polypeptides, or protein), are vulnerable to breakage if they were to come in contact with metastable bonds (water).

Looking At The Structure and Polarity Of Peptide Bonds

To discover the physical characteristics of peptide bonds, researchers perform x-ray diffraction studies. With this study, researchers have proven that peptide bonds are both rigid and planar.
These results are due to the interaction of the amide, which is able to delocalize its sole pair of electrons into carbonyl oxygen. This primarily will affect a peptide bond structure. The N–C bond is shorter than the N–Cα bond, while the C=0 bond is longer than the carbonyl bond. There is no cis configuration in the peptide, but there is a trans configuration between the carbonyl oxygen and amide hydrogen in the peptide. A trans configuration is preferred over a cis configuration as a Cis configuration can cause a steric interaction.

In the structure of a peptide bond, free rotation can occur. Free rotations are the process of a single bond coming between a carbonyl carbon and amide nitrogen. The nitrogen, however, has a free set of electrons, and thus resonance structure can be drawn where a double bond can connect the carbon and nitrogen. The oxygen, in this case, will have a negative charge while nitrogen has a positive charge, and thus, the rotation of the peptide bond will be inhibited from the resonance structure. It is vital to note that a weighted hybrid of the two structures is a real structure.

How To Find The Best Peptide Solubility Option

Figuring out the most effective solvent to dissolve peptides with is possibly one of the most difficult components when working with peptides and conducting research. Aqueous solutions–also known as sterile waters–are one way to dissolve peptides. Problems do, however, still arise with this method. Some issues you may encounter are related to low solubility or even solubility. This matter is more common when working with peptides containing long hydrophobic amino acid sequences. Though there are difficulties, in this day and age, researchers can predict a peptide’s solubility just by studying its known characteristics and its amino acid.

An Amino Acid’s physical properties are what predominantly determines a peptide’s solubility. Amino Acids classification can be any one of the following four:
1. Basic
2. Acidic
3. Polar uncharged
4. Non-polar (hydrophobic-do not dissolve in aqueous solutions)

A large number of non-polar or polar uncharged amino acids dissolve more effectively with organic solvents such as:
1. DMSO
2. Propanol
3. Isopropanol
4. Methanol
5. DMF

Basic solvents (ammonium hydroxide) are of better use for peptides with high content amino acids. It is important to note that ammonium hydroxide should not be used with peptides having Cys. Acidic solvents, such as acetic acid solution, are also better paired with peptides that contain a high number of basic amino acids. Each peptide dissolves more easily and effectively when paired with the correct solvent. The first step to take into account is that researchers should first attempt to dissolve peptides in sterile water. This is important, especially if a peptide has less than 5 amino acids since they dissolve more easily in water.

Steps To Remember For Proper Peptide Solubility

1. In order to achieve the ideal solubility, researchers must test a small amount of peptide in peptide solubility. This helps the researcher decipher whether the solution is a good match with the peptide.

2. Allow time for the peptide to reach room temperature before attempting to dissolve it in solution.
*Utilize solutions that are able to be removed by lyophilization if sterile water solution does not work when trying to dissolve the peptide. If none of the options are successful, then it can be removed by the lyophilization which allows the researcher to start the process again without losing or affecting the peptide.

3. A slightly warmer solution, for example less than 40 Celsius or 104 Fahrenheit, would aid in solubility. Sonication techniques can also be of use. It is vital to note that this only helps in dissolving a peptide. It will not change the peptides natural characteristics.

Researchers should evaluate an amino acids composition of the peptide to predict the solubility characteristics of a peptide. It is essential to check the number and type of ionic charges of a peptide influence solubility. It is imperative as it helps tell whether the peptide is acidic, basic, or neutral. To figure this out, one would assign a value of -1 to amino acids (also known as residues). For example, you may see Asp (D), Glu (E), and C-terminal (COOH). Then you would assign +1 value to each basic amino acid which includes Lys (K), Arg (R), and N-terminal NH2. You would also assign value to +1 to each His (H) amino acid at pH6. And finally calculate the net charge overall of the peptide. This is done by adding up the peptide’s total number.

What To Do When It Is Time To Conduct Peptide Solubility

Only when the net charge of the peptide is calculated can solubility predictions be made. This allows researchers to begin dissolving the peptides in solution. As mentioned previously it is also essential to try to dissolve peptides in sterile water before attempting to use other solutions. If and only when the water is ineffective, researchers may follow these directions.

First, you attempt to dissolve a peptide in acetic acid solution (10-30%) only if the overall net charge is positive. If this is not the case, try TFA (<50μl). Alternatively, if there is a negatively charged peptide, you may experiment with using ammonium hydroxide (NH4OH; < 50 μl) to dissolve the peptide. Note that if Cys is in the peptide, add a small amount of DMF and do not work with ammonium hydroxide. Lastly, If the overall net charge is 0, meaning the peptide is neutral, the most effective solvent would be organic solvents. Organic solvents consist of acetonitrile, methanol, or isopropanol. Use a small amount of DMSO if a peptide is highly hydrophobic.

CAUTION: DMSO can oxidize peptides containing cysteine, methionine, or tryptophan. Some peptides also tend to aggregate (gel); in regard to these peptides, add 6 M guanidine•HCl or 8 M urea.

Dilute the peptide solution to the desired concentrate by slowly adding the peptide solution into a buffered solution only when the peptide has successfully dissolved. It is critical to use gentle but, most importantly, constant agitation while combining it to monitor and avoid localized concentration of the peptide in an aqueous solution. The experimental assay also suggests preparing peptide stock solution at higher concentrations than what is typically required. This can help dilute the stock more with use of the assay buffer.

When the process is finished and the solution is prepared correctly, it should be moved and stored at -20C (-4F). Peptides that contain cysteine, methionine, or tryptophan should be stored
In an oxygen-free environment to prevent oxidative damage.

Purifying Peptides And What You Should Know

Advancements in today’s world have driven the scientific field of peptide synthesis to what it is today. Peptide synthesis has allowed for an immense production of custom peptides. Due to having more peptides for research, it is imperative and critical to have and implement effective peptide purification procedures. Here you will find information on the different aspects of peptide purification that takes place during the synthesis, different strategies, and methods for it as well as possible mistakes such as impurities that can actually be removed just by purification during the synthesis.

They are unique and complex. Due to this complexity, they can affect purification methods that work for other organic compounds. To maximize efficiency and yield to supply the purest peptides possible for an affordable cost, special attention must be made when they are in synthesis. Chromatography, specifically a high reverse phase chromatography, is what many purification processes like to utilize. However, purification based on crystallization is also effective with other compounds.

The BluePrint and Process for Peptide Purification

The purification process should be simple and have as little steps as possible to achieve purity.
You can still get your targeted results even with two or more purification processes being done right after one another. One example is when an ion exchange chromatography is used in alliance with a reverse phase chromatography. This can result in a highly pure product when completed.

The first step to be taken is the capturing step. This step will remove more than half of the impurities found in a synthetic mixture. The impurities that are eliminated are typically produced in the final deprotection stage of peptide synthesis. Those impurities are typically uncharged and are considered small due to their molecular weight.

If a higher purity level is needed, a second purification can be done as well to achieve the target purity. This second step is referred to as the polishing step. It is effective when working with a complementary chromatographic principle.

There are multiple subsystems and units that make up the system for peptide purification. These include:
1. Buffer preparation Systems
2. Solvent Delivery Systems
3. Fraction Systems
4. Data Collection Systems.
*There are also columns and detectors that could be pivotal.

The heart of the purification system is the column. The column’s features are vital to the effectiveness of the process. Columns have features that are made from glass or steel with static or dynamic modes of compression. Any of those features can affect the outcome of the final purification. It is crucial that every purification practice is carried out following the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), and priority is given to sanitation.

Purification Process Types:

1. Ion Exchange Chromatography (IEX)
The Ion Exchange Chromatography excels with different charges among peptides in a mixture. When peptides with opposite charges meet in a chromatographic medium, one charge begins to isolate. Columns and binds are what peptides are loaded into. So that bound substances are eluted differently, conditions are continuously changed. What is being manipulated during this is levels of salt concentration (which is used to elute the mixture) or the pH level. The peptide, during the binding process, is concentrated and then, in its purified form, collected. This process has high resolution and high capacity as well.

2. Hydrophobic Interaction Chromatography (HIC)
Hydrophobicity is the principle; that this purification process follows; the selected peptides will then isolate due to the interaction between a peptide and a hydrophobic surface of a chromatic medium. Due to this also being an action that can be reversible, a peptide can be concentrated and purified. HIC could be an effective purification to use after a previous purification method was utilized that consisted of salt in elution (IEX). To do this, a high ionic strength buffer is needed to magnify the process. During this process, they bind together while in a high ionic strength solution. As they bind, they are loaded onto columns. Following this, the salt concentration is decreased, which causes elution. This results in bound substances eluting differentially. Using ammonium sulfate is one way to typically implement this process. It is used to dilute samples on a reduced gradient. In the end, the peptide is collected in the final concentrated and purified form. HIC provides good levels of resolution and sample capacity.

3. Affinity Chromatography (AC)
The first note to make about Affinity Chromatography is that it offers high resolution and sample capacity. It isolates them through capitalizing the interaction between peptides and a particular ligand that is attached to a chromatographic matrix. The peptide then bonds to a ligand, and the unbound material is cleaned off. One crucial information to know about this binding is that it is reversible. This means the condition is changed to be more complementary to desorption. Desorption could also be performed specifically or not specifically. Specific desorption uses a competitive ligand, while nonspecific uses an altered pH, polarity, or ionic strength. Once that is completed, the peptide of choice is collected in its purified form.

4. Reversed Phase Chromatography (RPC)
This method separates peptides from contaminate by using reversible interactions between the selected molecules and chromatographic mediums on a hydrophobic surface. This method also offers high resolution. Sample could then be loaded on columns or even bind together. After they have done one of these steps, the conditions are changed to the bound substances elute differently. The organic solvents and additional additives are needed for elution. Due to the reversed phase matricis, initial bonding is considered to be strong. Typically to achieve elution, organic solvents concentration needs to be increased, known as acetonitrile. Through the binding process, the concentrated molecules are then gathered while it’s in its pure form. Note this method is primarily used as a clean up step with peptides and oligonucleotide samples. RPC is successful when working with analytical separations such as peptide mapping. It still is not the most perfect method to use as organic solvents can denature peptides. Thus, it is not always the preferred method as requirements may call for recovery of activity and need to return the peptides to a correct tertiary structure.

5. Gel Filtration (GF)
By taking advantage of different molecular sizes between the chosen peptides and impurities, this purification method can isolate peptides. This method, however, is only used when dealing with small volume samples. It does still offer good resolution as well.

The Importance Of Following The Good Manufacturing Practices

To ensure the final peptides are pure and high quality, researchers must ensure to follow the guidelines given by Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). It is a requirement that chemical and analytical procedures that have been executed are properly documented. All testing and research methods and specifications needed must be known and accepted before any work is begun. This will promise that the process is reproducible and regulated correctly.

The requirements for purification of peptide synthesis are careful and diligent. This is partly due to the step having a huge impact on the final results of the peptides quality. Steps and parameters that are crucial must be pinpointed, and there must also be limits set for those parameters. This is required so that the process can be duplicated, and these steps could be replicated by others and produce the same results. Examples of the important parameters of the purification process include:
1. Column Loading
2. Flow Rate
3. Column Performance
4. Column Cleaning Procedures
5. Composition of Elution Buffer
6. Storage Time in Process
7. Pooling of Fractions

How To Rid Peptides Of Specific Impurities

The goal for synthetization is to have the purest peptide possible for researchers to use. There is a minimum of acceptable purity levels that are welcomed and used for different research purposes. Take an in vitro study, for example. They have a need for a high standard of purity (>95%). ELISA, on the other hand, has a minimal acceptability of >70% for measuring titers of antibodies. Therefore the minimum level is essential to attain.

It is also important to understand and know the types of impurities that can come forth along with their characteristics. This way, researchers know what purification method would be most effective as each situation is different.

Specific impurities during peptide synthesis can happen; These consist of:
1. Hydrolysis products of labile amide bonds
2. Deletion sequences generated in solid-phase peptide synthesis (SPPS)
3. Diastereomers
4. Insertion peptides and by-products formed during removal of protection groups

Other than impurities, polymeric forms of peptides may also occur. This transpires due to a byproduct resulting from a formation of cyclic peptides which have disulphide bonds. Therefore, the purification process method that is chosen must make certain to isolate the selected peptide while in a multifaceted mixture of compounds and impurities.

Differences and Similarities Between Peptides and Proteins

What Are Peptides?

Peptides, by definition, are short chains of amino acids that are linked by amide or peptide bonds. However, their name describes peptides as having a compound made up of two or more amino acids; they can also be classified as oligopeptides and polypeptides. Oligopeptides–named due to its meaning few–consists of less than ten small numbers of amino acids, while polypeptides consist of more than ten amino acids.

What are Amino Acids?

Amino Acids: A small but vital compound containing carboxylic acid and amino groups. It also contains a side chain structure that varies depending on the amino acid. Though we know about hundreds of Amino Acids, there are only 12 that can be genetically combined into peptides, and the rest can be authentically combined. The amino acids that can be combined into peptides are:
1. Arginine
2. Lysine
3. Glutamine
The building blocks of peptides are amino acids. A peptide is formed when amine and carboxylic acid groups in amino acids combine to form the amide bond. Combining two or more amino acids results in a peptide being formed. This can also happen naturally or synthetically. A dipeptide is the shortest peptide, consisting of two amino acids, while a tripeptide is a peptide with three amino acids in length.

What Differentiates Them?

While peptides and proteins have similarities, they also have differences. It is important to understand these differences as well. Peptide and protein can be used interchangeably at times. However, the different characteristics and biological activities between the two stop them from becoming completely substitutable.
It is crucial to comprehend the differences between proteins and peptides, and to do this you must understand amino acids and how amino acids, peptides, and proteins are connected and relate to each other.

What Are Polypeptides And How Do They Relate To Proteins?

Proteins and polypeptides can be told apart due to their size and structure. Polypeptides are typically composed of 50 or more amino acids and are considered to be a protein. It is important to note they can be composed of 40-100 amino acids.

When it comes to structure, that is where the difference between proteins and polypeptides is noticeable. Polypeptides do not have a fixed structure and are shorter than 40-50 amino acids in length additionally, they do not have cooperative interactions to form stable native structures. Proteins, on the other hand, can fold into three-dimensional stable fixed structures. They have this structure for a certain function, such as for the hemoglobin (a protein responsible for transporting oxygen in the blood).
