[ Vol. 26 , Issue. 4 ]

Bromotryptophan is a nonstandard amino acid that is rarely incorporated in ribosomally synthesized and post-translationally modified peptides (ribosomal peptides). Bromotryptophan and its analogs sometimes occur in non-ribosomal peptides. This paper presents an overview of ribosomal and non-ribosomal peptides that are known to contain bromotryptophan and its analogs. This work further covers the biological activities and therapeutic potential of some of these peptides.


Bromotryptophan and analogs, nonstandard amino acid, proteinogenic and non-proteinogenic amino acids, bromotryptophan- containing peptide, ribosomal and non-ribosomal peptides, conotoxin/conopeptide.
