Microorganisms are in a position to generating a large choice of biopolymers. Homopolymer peptides, that are made of just a unmarried kind of amino acid, are some distance much less ubiquitous. the single amino-acid homopolymers identified to happen in nature are awarded during this quantity.
Poly-epsilon-L-lysine is a polycationic peptide and shows antimicrobial job opposed to a large spectrum of microorganisms. it really is either secure and biodegradable and is for that reason used as a foodstuff preservative in numerous nations. additionally, there was nice curiosity in clinical and different functions of poly-lysine and its derivatives.
In distinction, poly-gamma-glutamic acid is an strange anionic polypeptide. it's also water soluble, biodegradable, fit to be eaten, non-toxic and non-immunogenic and will be chemically converted to introduce a variety of medicines. those beneficial properties are very necessary for pharmaceutical and biomedical functions. Poly-glutamic acid can also be a hugely appealing as a foodstuff ingredient.
