The cell adhesion domain, arginine-glycine-aspartic acid (RGD), has been incorporated into synthetic peptides to perform either of two modes of drug action, antagonist or agonist. Short, conformationally constrained peptides have been developed as antagonists for the platelet membrane glycoprotein complex, the integrin alpha IIb beta 3, using cell-based and(More)
Utilizing conformational constraints in conjunction with various structural considerations, we have synthesized a series of cyclic disulfide peptides that are highly potent and selective antagonists for the platelet integrin alpha IIb beta 3 (GPIIb/IIIa). The affinities of the peptides for alpha IIb beta 3 were determined by platelet aggregation assays and(More)
A full-length cDNA coding for hydroperoxide lyase (CsHPL) was isolated from cucumber fruits of No. 26 (Southern China type) and No.14-1 (Northern China type), which differed significantly in fruit flavor. The deduced amino acid sequences of CsHPL from both lines show the same and significant similarity to known plant HPLs and contain typical conserved(More)
