Anna's and YingFei's Research Proposal


Using Cysteine-Knot Proteins to Engineer Drugs for Cancer Treatment

Papers we are using as resources:

Grafting of thrombopoietin-mimetic peptides into cystine knot miniproteins yields high-affinity thrombopoietin antagonists and agonists [6]

A novel suite of cyclotides from Viola odorata: sequence variation and the implications for structure, function and stability [7]

Cyclotides: A Novel Type of Cytotoxic Agents [8]
