A synthetic compound in which two or more amino acids are linked by a peptide bond

Characteristic of peptide

  • The constituents are amino acids and have high affinity with skin
  • High stability due to smaller number of amino acids compared to protein
  • A short sequence with only the active site of the protein has similar efficacy to the protein
  • Peptide synthesis realizes less costly than protein expression or purification
  • It can exert strong activation and pharmacological effectswith a small amount of administration
  • With high specificry, there is no toxicity in vivo or skin
  • It is a bio-degradable material and less likely to pollute the environment
