 Synonyms & Historicals
Famotidine .
Famotidine Hydrochloride .
MK-208 .
Pepcid .
YM-11170 .
MK 208 .
MK208 .
YM 11170 .
YM11170 .
A competitive histamine H2-receptor antagonist. Its main pharmacodynamic effect is the inhibition of gastric secretion. .
Peptones .
Peptone .
Derived proteins or mixtures of cleavage products produced by the partial hydrolysis of a native protein either by an acid or by an enzyme. Peptones are readily soluble in water, and are not precipitable by heat, by alkalis, or by saturation with ammonium sulfate. (Dorland, 28th ed) .
Pepsin A .
Pepsin 1 .
Pepsin 3 .
Pepsin .
Formed from pig pepsinogen by cleavage of one peptide bond. The enzyme is a single polypeptide chain and is inhibited by methyl 2-diaazoacetamidohexanoate. It cleaves peptides preferentially at the carbonyl linkages of phenylalanine or leucine and acts as the principal digestive enzyme of gastric juice. .
Hepcidins .
Hepcidin .
Liver-Expressed Antimicrobial Peptide .
Pro-Hepcidin .
Prohepcidin .
Antimicrobial Peptide, Liver-Expressed .

Peptide, Liver-Expressed Antimicrobial .
Pro Hepcidin .
Forms of hepcidin, a cationic amphipathic peptide synthesized in the liver as a prepropeptide which is first processed into prohepcidin and then into the biologically active hepcidin forms, including in human the 20-, 22-, and 25-amino acid residue peptide forms. Hepcidin acts as a homeostatic regulators of iron metabolism and also possesses antimicrobial activity. .
Peptoids .
Peptoid .
Polymers of N-SUBSTITUTED GLYCINES containing chiral centers at the a-position of their side chains. These oligomers lack HYDROGEN BONDING donors, preventing formation of the usual intrachain hydrogen bonds but can form helices driven by the steric influence of chiral side chains. .
Peptides .
Polypeptides .
Members of the class of compounds composed of AMINO ACIDS joined together by peptide bonds between adjacent amino acids into linear, branched or cyclical structures. OLIGOPEPTIDES are composed of approximately 2-12 amino acids. Polypeptides are composed of approximately 13 or more amino acids. PROTEINS are linear polypeptides that are normally synthesized on RIBOSOMES. .
