Comparison of N-terminal modifications on neurotensin(8-13) analogues correlates peptide stability but not binding affinity with in vivo efficacy.


Neurotensin(8-13) and two related analogues were used as model systems to directly compare various N-terminal peptide modifications representing both commonly used and novel capping groups. Each N-terminal modification prevented aminopeptidase cleavage but surprisingly differed in its ability to inhibit cleavage at other sites, a phenomenon attributed to… (More)
