By Choh Hao Li

Hormonal Proteins and Peptides: β-Endorphin, quantity X specializes in the chemistry, biology, and scientific investigations of opioid peptides. This e-book discusses the chemical technique in keeping apart a chemical entity from its usual resource and investigates its organic task after it's been decided to be a natural substance.
Organized into 9 chapters, this quantity starts off with an summary of the structure–activity courting of β-endorphin (β-EP) by way of man made method. this article then explores the proteinases focused on the iteration of opioid peptides, together with β-EP from β-lipotropin (β-LPH). different chapters overview the biosynthesis of β-EP and view intimately the opiate receptor. This e-book discusses besides the anatomy of β-EP-containing constructions in pituitary and mind. the ultimate bankruptcy offers a dialogue at the old elements of opiate–peptide discoveries, really within the box of narcotic antagonists.
