Associated scholarship(s):19/27661-3 - Bioactive peptides from aquatic Portuguese amphibians, BP.PD


The objective of this study is the integration of experiences in the identification and characterization of bioactive compounds (peptides from animal origin and secondary compounds from plants). Studies involving synergism between peptides and amides based on natural products may contribute to understand structure-activity relationship and to the describe biological processes involved in the control of microrganisms, parasites and cell growth.
