Peptides are short-chain amino acids that perform numerous functions as chemical messengers, hormones, cellular mediators, highly specific stimulators, inhibitors, and novel treatments for various diseases, including Alzheimer's and cancer. Due to the emerging solid-phase peptide synthesis technologies, synthetic peptides have now been widely used in biochemistry, molecular biology, and pharmaceutical areas. Dye-labeled peptides are powerful tools to investigate the cellular structure, analyze receptor-ligand or protein-protein interactions, study cellular transport, and measure enzymatic activity via FRET analysis.
