Q: Concerning our final exam, will it be more focused on the most recent material, or should we expect an even distribution of all material that we have covered. Thank you.
A: A more or less equal distributed over the emtire semester.
Q: What should we take away from the discussion of ACE inhibitors and their libraries? Should we know the propable mechanisms and the different resultant points of diversity?
A: You don't need to know anything about a specific library, i.e., such as their exact synthesis, except a peptide library because we already know howto synthesize peptides. The concept of points of diversity is important. Concerning the ACE, you should know that ACE is a protease and how it cleaves peptides and how a potential inhiitor works.
Q: Could you suggest a reference book on amino acid and peptide chemistry?
A: The following are excellent references books for peptide chemistry:
