Peptide T

Description Peptide T is a chain of eight amino acids. It shares sequence homology with HIV envelope protein gp120. Peptide T is potentially useful as antiviral agent in AIDS therapy. Peptide T is a synthetically produced protein derived from gp120--the protein on the surface of HIV particles that binds to the CD4 molecule on the surface of some human cells. Peptide T was discovered in 1986 when scientists were screening for gp120-derived peptides that might block HIV infection.
