A BPS19 Recap
With the team just having returned from BPS, we thought we would touch upon three topics we heard a lot about while there. These are culled from previous blog posts, yet their contents retain relevancy.
Of course, there were numerous inquiries about Amyloid β, with its continued applications for Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative disease research. The link to the PepTalk below is from 2017. Peptides International offers many products and resources related to Amyloid β, found here.

Another reoccurring discussion at the PI booth was centered on Antimicrobial Peptides. These were generating a lot of interest and Lugdunin, LL-37, and the Defensins were chief among these. The PepTalk from 1/30/2017 focused on the former.
New and Improved Antimicrobial Peptides!
Probably the most popular type of peptide we had inquiries about were the Cell-Penetrating Peptides (CPPs) and Membrane Permeable Peptides (MPPs). One of our earlier Peptalks, dating from 2015 addressed the pros and cons of this class of peptides.
Cell Penetrating Peptides
Since then, we have featured CPPs in two subsequent PepTalks, both from just last year.
An Inside Job: Destroying Cancer Cells with a Peptide
Probing the Matrix
Our list of Cell-Penetrating Peptides is available here.
We are always love hearing feedback from our customers and investigators in the lab – what are your areas of interest and topics you might like to see explored in future PepTalks? (They do not have to be BPS related.) Send us an email and let us know! The mission of the PepTalk blogs is to make it relevant to our audience.
