Abstract

Glyprolines widely occur in structures of regulatory oligopeptides with a wide spectrum of bioactivities. The role of glyprolines is most significant in regulatory tripeptides. They participate in the stabilization of regulatory oligopeptides in organisms and in the generation of a complex new spectra of bioactivities. Gly-Pro-Glu, Gly-Pro-Leu, Leu-Gly-Pro, Gly-Pro-Arg, Ac-Pro-Gly-Pro, and Gly-Pro-Gly-NH2 serve as examples. The glyprolines deserve further systematic comparative studies. The data in this review can be used to guide elaboration of new peptide medicinal drugs, including hybrid peptides.
