The source of peptide drugs

- Aug 31, 2019-

Peptide drugs are mainly derived from endogenous peptides or other exogenous peptides.

endogenous peptides

That is, the human body's inherent endogenous peptides, such as brain morphine, thymus peptides, pancreatic peptides and so on.

Exogenous peptides

Such as snake venom, salivaacids, bee venom, frog venom, scorpion venom, hydroxyl, zircon toxin derivatives and flies secreted sterilizing peptides. With the development of modern biotechnology and peptide synthesis technology, some active peptides can be obtained through molecular design and screening by computer, and by synthetic synthesis.
