Peptide Structure Determination Service

    Peptides are abundant in living organisms, actively participating in key biological processes such as hormone regulation, enzyme catalysis, and immune responses. Their spatial structure and functional features greatly influence their biological activity. Accurately determining peptide structures is essential for understanding peptide folding patterns, bioactivity, and structural features. It also informs drug development and bioengineering optimization. Peptide structure determination is valuable in biomedical research and drug development, providing insight into protein structure-function relationships, supporting drug design, and advancing vaccine research. Furthermore, it is critical in studying disease mechanisms, developing protein-based drugs, and refining biotechnology applications.

     

    Analysis Workflow

    1. Sample Preparation

    Extract and purify target peptides using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) or other suitable techniques. Desalt and concentrate purified peptides to meet structural analysis requirements.

     

    2. Sequence Analysis

    (1) Select appropriate enzymes to digest peptide samples based on sequence characteristics, producing fragments for mass spectrometry analysis.

    (2) Use HPLC to separate enzymatically cleaved peptides.

    (3) Determine peptide fragments' amino acid composition and sequence via Edman degradation or tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS), revealing the primary peptide structure.

     

    3. Structural Analysis

    Measure the peptide’s ultraviolet absorption by circular dichroism (CD), identifying their internal secondary structure elements such as α-helices and β-folds.
