Fifteen years ago, Prof.Craik discovered a family of peptides with a structure like no other that is now called cyclotides. As the name suggests, their structure is cyclic and includes an intricate knot. Today, Prof. Craik's group is re-engineering and adapting peptides to create new drugs. The group had also success in using the methodology ... Read more about "Cyclic peptide scaffolds as templates in drug design"

Huntington's disease (HD), the most common dominantly inherited neurodegenerative disorder is characterized by a progressive striatal and cortical neurodegeneration associated with cognitive and behavioral disturbance. So far, many are the aberrant molecular mechanisms described to be associated with the disease, however much remains to be defined. In the last decade, perturbed metabolism of gangliosides, glycosphingolipids ...
