Peptide Modifications

Bio-Synthesis offers hundreds of peptide modifications to meet your custom peptide needs. These peptide modifications can be used to create synthetic peptide with the exact conformation or characteristics needed for specific applications. Large numbers of modified amino acids are focused on post-translation modifications (PTM) that naturally occur in vivo, while others are pharmacologically modified or stable isotope labeled. Additionally, tags, proteins or oligonucleotides can be chemically conjugated to these peptides through Bio-Synthesis. With over 30 years of experience in providing modified peptide synthesis, we are your best choice for producing custom modified peptides on time and on budget. Our peptide modification services include but are not limited to the following:

  • Fluorophores and Quenchers: Emitting and Quenching dyes for FRET and other dyes
  • Attachment Chemistry: Linkers, Spacers and Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) modifications
  • Unnatural Amino Acids: D-stereoisomers, Unnatural and special amino acids
  • Post-translational Modifications (PTMs): Myristoylation, Palmitoylation, Glycosylation, Phosphorylation, Citrullination, Methylation, Succinylation
  • Isotopically Labeled (heavy) Amino Acids: Carbon 13 (C13), Nitrogen 15 (N15) and Deuterium (H2)
  • Immunogen Conjugation: Carrier protein conjugates, Lipids and Nucleic acids
  • Specialty Peptides: Stapled peptides, Cyclization, Dimerization and many others
  • Miscellaneous Modifications: Biotinylation, Carboxymethylation (CAM), Protecting group, Bioconjugation
