Professor, Department of Chemistry, University of Basel Abstract
Süßstoff, Hormone, Schlangengifte, Antifaltenwirkstoffe - all diese Eigenschaften und noch viele mehr werden von unterschiedlichen Minieiweißen, im Fachjargon Peptiden, erfüllt. Peptide sind daher in unserem Alltag allgegenwärtig und sind wie ihre größeren Verwandten, die Proteine, aus Aminosäuren aufgebaut. Im Vortrag wird verdeutlicht, wieso Peptide derart viele verschiedene Aufgaben übernehmen können. Zudem wird gezeigt, wie Peptide mit bisher unbekannten Funktionen, z. B. Katalysatoren ( Minienzyme ) und Stoffen zur Herstellung von Nanopartikeln, entwickelt werden können.
