Peptide T


HIV Peptide T

L-Threonine, N-(N-(N2-(N-(N-(N-(N-D-alanyl-L-seryl)-L-threonyl)-L-threonyl)-L-threonyl)-L-asparaginyl)-L-tyrosyl)-

Peptide T, HIV

N-(N-(N(2)-(N-(N-(N-(N-D-Alanyl L-seryl)-L-threonyl)-L-threonyl) L-threonyl)-L-asparaginyl)-L-tyrosyl) L-threonine. Octapeptide sharing sequence homology with HIV envelope protein gp120. It is potentially useful as antiviral agent in AIDS therapy. The core pentapeptide sequence, TTNYT, consisting of amino acids 4-8 in peptide T, is the HIV envelope sequence required for attachment to the CD4 receptor.
