Biopolymer Science for Proteins and Peptides

Biopolymer Science for Proteins and Peptides introduces all aspects of natural polymers based on structural proteins and peptides, presenting synthesis, structure, properties, proteins, materials design, and applications. The book begins by presenting the core concepts of polypeptide and protein materials, before discussing synthesis and structure in detail. The next part of the book describes physical properties, biological properties, and issues surrounding stability. Subsequent chapters offer in-depth coverage of both natural structural protein sources, including collagen, silk, elastin, resilin, keratin, foot protein, and reflectin, and the materials that can be designed from them, such as films, fibers, textiles, microparticles, sponges and scaffolds, nanomaterials, blends, and composites. These materials are also analyzed against the available synthetic polymers. Finally, current applications and potential future developments are explored. This is an essential resource for researchers and advanced students across a range of disciplines, including in biopolymers, structural proteins, polymer science, materials science, biomaterials, biology, biotechnology, chemistry, engineering, and pharmaceutical science. In an industry setting, this is of interest to scientists and R&D professionals working in industries with an interest in bio-based polymers for advanced applications. Explains how biopolymers from structural proteins and peptides can be developed into materials, such as films, fibers, textiles, microparticles, sponges and scaffolds, nanomaterials, blends, and polymer composites Provides the reader with a solid understanding of structure, synthesis, and properties, and compares against synthetic polymers Guides the reader from sources including collagen, silk, elastin, resilin, keratin, and reflectin, to material design and cutting-edge applications

Sheds new light on intrinsically disordered proteins andpeptides, including their role in neurodegenerative diseases With the discovery of intrinsically disordered proteins andpeptides (IDPs), researchers realized that proteins do notnecessarily adopt a well defined secondary and tertiary structurein order to perform biological functions. In fact, IDPs playbiologically relevant roles, acting as inhibitors, scavengers, andeven facilitating DNA/RNA-protein interactions. Due to theirpropensity for self-aggregation and fibril formation, some IDPs areinvolved in neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's andAlzheimer's. With contributions from leading researchers,

Nature has evolved sequence-controlled polymers, such as DNA and proteins, over its long history. The recent progress of synthetic chemistry, DNA recombinant technology, and computational science, as well as the elucidation of molecular mechanisms in biological processes, drive us to design ingenious polymers that are inspired by naturally occurring polymers, but surpass them in specialized functions. The term “designer biopolymers” refers to polymers which consist of biological building units, such as nucleotides, amino acids, and monosaccharides, in a sequence-controlled manner.
