Design and chemical synthesis of non-degradable protein
Proteins are indispensable molecular materials in a wide range of research fields such as molecular biology and drug discovery. However, natural proteins, which consist of 20 proteinogenic amino acids, are easily degraded by proteases in vivo. This research aims to create artificial proteins that are resistant to degradation by using synthetic organic chemistry method, called "chemical protein synthesis".


Proteins are extremely sophisticated molecules refined during the evolution of life. We are trying to create molecules that go beyond proteins!
