  • Proteins, as their name indicates, occupy the prime place in Nature’s architecture. It is worth remarking that Nature uses the structural type for diverse purposes, in addition to those familiar in enzymology, immunology, etc. A striking example is provided by the recent publication (Bradbury et al. 1976), showing that the C fragment of lipotropin (residues 61‒91) is firmly bound by opiate receptors and is an analgesic 200 times as potent as morphine in molar terms. The pentapeptide comprising… CONTINUE READING
