N-methyl Amino Acids

Description

Studies on NMA (N-methylamino acid) containing peptides reveal that NMA residues increase proteolytic stability, increase membrane permeability (lipophilicity), and alter the conformational characteristics or properties of the amide bonds. A review by Fairlie discusses many aspects of the biological activity of peptides including numerous examples of N-methylation in natural products and therapeutic agents. The effects of NMA mentioned above are important in actual and potential therapeutic compounds and the assay of biological activity of modified peptides.
