A combined atomic force microscopy and computational approach for the structural elucidation of breitfussin A and B: highly modified halogenated dipeptides from Thuiaria breitfussi.
The use of atomic-force microscopy (AFM) with atomic resolution shows great potential for the structural characterization of planar, proton-poor compounds, as these compounds are prone to structuralExpand

Targeting the S1 and S3 subsite of trypsin with unnatural cationic amino acids generates antimicrobial peptides with potential for oral administration.
This study investigates how the S1 and S3 site of trypsin can be challenged with cationic amino acid analogues to yield active antimicrobial peptides with stability toward tryptic degradation. It isExpand
