Large scale mapping of bioactive peptides in structural and sequence space

PLoS One
PMCID: 5774755
PMID: 29351315
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0191063

[…] t, or treatment of chronic disease []. In this sense, several databases and bioinformatics tools have been developed to predict and study BP occurrence in food proteins. Among the databases, we found PepBank [], Antimicrobial Peptide Database (APD) [] and BIOPEP []. Databases are the main source of information to predict occurrence of BP in proteins. Basically, primary structure information of cha […]


Enzyme Assisted Discovery of Antioxidant Peptides from Edible Marine Invertebrates: A Review

Mar Drugs
PMCID: 5334622
PMID: 28212329
DOI: 10.3390/md15020042

[…] within the primary structures of 17 peptides they identified from a pinto bean hydrolysate exhibiting antioxidant activity. On the other hand, in silico analyses involving PeptideRanker, BioPep, and PepBank were used to select five candidates from bioactive peptides identified from donkey milk for chemical synthesis. Further validations of the synthetic peptides lead to the discovery of two novel […]


Initial peptidomic profiling of Brazilian sea urchins: Arbacia lixula, Lytechinus variegatus and Echinometra lucunter

PMCID: 4857251
PMID: 27152113
DOI: 10.1186/s40409-016-0071-x

[…] mic fluid and spines. For Echinometra lucunter it was not possible to retrieve peptides from the spines – only in coelomic fluid.These sequenced peptides were then checked against a peptide database (PepBank) and some similarities could be identified, as listed in Table . Interesting biological activities were found for the matched sequences, such as antibiotic, antitumor, phospholipase A2 inhibit […]


Major Peptides from Amaranth (Amaranthus cruentus) Protein Inhibit HMG CoA Reductase Activity

Int J Mol Sci
PMCID: 4346949
PMID: 25690031
DOI: 10.3390/ijms16024150

[…] h TCA interruption.Identification of the most abundant peptide components in protein hydrolysates involved the search for the masses and partial sequences (sequences tags) in the databases BIOPEP []; Pepbank [] and several articles. shows the peptide profile observed in the hydrolyzed samples. The three major peaks were chosen to be identified by the de novo technique. The difference between the f […]


Investigation of the Novel Lead of Melanocortin 1 Receptor for Pigmentary Disorders

PMCID: 3947904
PMID: 24693320
DOI: 10.1155/2014/254678
call_split See protocol

[…] The ligands from PepBank and the control ligand, His-Phe-Arg-Trp (HFRW), were prepared for specified modeling methods. We used Chemistry at HARvard Molecular Mechanics (CHARMm) force field to set up the model []. Dock […]


PepBind: A Comprehensive Database and Computational Tool for Analysis of Protein–peptide Interactions

PMCID: 4357787
PMID: 23896518
DOI: 10.1016/j.gpb.2013.03.002

[…] chanisms, a reliable database of protein–peptide complexes is necessary. A number of sequence-based protein–peptide interaction databases are available, such as ELM , PhosphoELM , DOMINO , SCANSITE , PepBank , APD , ASPD and BIOPEP . Structural data are also available on protein–peptide complex structures in peptiDB and PepX . While peptiDB is a set of 103 curated PDB files for non-redundant pro […]
