|Topic:||Proteins and Peptides Introduction .|
|Details:|| Peptides are small polymers of amino acid monomers that are bonded together and distinguished from proteins by their size (typically containing fewer than 50 monomer units). Peptides allow the development of antibodies of a very specific region of a protein without the need to purify the protein of interest. They also allow for the identification of proteins of interest based on peptide masses and sequence. Typically, peptides are used in clinical research to examine the inhibition of cancer proteins and other diseases.
