Beta-Homo Amino Acids

Beta-homo-amino acids are analogs of standard amino acids in which the carbon skeleton has been lengthened by insertion of one carbon atom immediately after the acid group. Incorporating beta-homo-amino acids into bioactive peptides can enhance their pharmacological properties. Increased biological half-life is one common effect of including a beta-homo-amino acid. Beta-homo-amino acids can increase potency, increase selectivity and reduce toxicity.
