​NTU Singapore scientists uncover binding secret behind protein ‘superglue’


Published on : 10-Jun-2019

Scientists from NTU have found the secret behind the 'superglue' property behind a class of plant-derived enzymes - called peptide ligase - that bind proteins together. This binding process is important in the process of drug development. Using this knowledge, a team led by Associate Professor Julien Lescar and Professor James Tam created a lab-grown peptide ligase that can overcome the limitations faced by current methods of binding during drug development.
