d-Amino acids are not abundant in nature, yet they can play important biological roles and offer advantages for biomedical applications, due to their effects on peptide conformation and higher resistance against enzymatic hydrolysis. This chapter analyses existing literature on the use of d-amino acids in self-assembled systems for biomedical applications, their biological roles and consequences that arise from their presence in a peptide sequence, as well as their application in medicine and related fields with a view towards the future.

Abstract

d-Amino acids are not abundant in nature, yet they can play important biological roles and offer advantages for biomedical applications, due to their effects on peptide conformation and higher resistance against enzymatic hydrolysis. This chapter analyses existing literature on the use of d-amino acids in self-assembled systems for biomedical applications, their biological roles and consequences that arise from their presence in a peptide sequence, as well as their application in medicine and related fields with a view towards the future.
