Nitration Shielding Peptides and Methods for Inhibiting Nitration of Proteins

Description:

Title

Nitration Shielding Peptides and Methods for Inhibiting Nitration of Proteins

 

Current State of the Art

Elevated nitration of proteins is associated with different diseases and disorders. Effective inhibition of nitration of proteins is an active area of research for drug discoverers.

 

Problems with the Current Art

Current methods of treating protein nitration and myriad of pathologies associated therewith are insufficient.

 

Advantage of the Invention

Researchers at GRU manufactured nitration shielding peptides that can reduce or decrease nitration of a specific protein. These peptides preferentially bind to the protein of interest, and provide a molecular site for nitration, and effectively inhibit the nitration of the target protein.
