Heidelberg, Germany: – Custom and modified peptide specialist Peptide Specialty Laboratories GmbH (PSL) is a sponsor of the upcoming Dutch Crystallographic Society (NVK) Structural Biology Symposium in Amsterdam.

The conference, titled ‘Interacting with Proteins: A structural view’ will focus on latest results and key issues in structural biology and imaging, notably creating high-res 3D structures of macromolecules and macromolecular complexes using X-ray diffraction, Cryo-EM and electron microdiffraction, Protein-Protein and Protein-Nucleic acid interactions, drug design and diffuse scattering.

The event is co-hosted by the Amsterdam Institute for Molecules, Medicines and Systems (AIMMS) at Vrije Universiteit (VU) Amsterdam.

High fidelity DNA replication

Keynote address will come from Dr. Meindert Lamers from NKI, formerly of MRC Cambridge, now Associate Professor at the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC), who will speak on ‘Structural features of high-fidelity DNA replication’.

Other contributions will come from Loes Kroon-Batenburg and Nicholas Pearce of University of Utrecht, Albert Guskov of Groningen University, Joost Uitdehaag from Netherlands Translational Research Center (NTRC), Max Clabbers of Stockholm University, Kenneth Verstraete of VU Gent and Antonella Fioravanti of VU Brussels.

The one-day symposium will take place on Thursday, June 6, in the O|2 Lab building of VU Amsterdam.

Research commitment

PSL Managing Director, Dr. Adrian Glas, commented: “We are delighted to join other leading names such as Thermo Fisher Scientific, Bruker and Amsterdam Scientific Instruments in sponsoring this highly useful symposium.”

“This is a token of our ongoing support and participation in academic research in structural biology” said Dr. Glas.

About PSL

Heidelberg-based Peptide Specialty Laboratories (PSL) specializes in synthesizing custom peptides, modified peptides as peptidomimetics and tailor made peptide-specific antibodies.

PSL’s core expertise is in developing customized peptides varying in length up to 100 amino acids, individualized to customer requirements. These peptides can be further modified with modified amino acids (methylated, phosphorylated, sugar-modified, D-amino acids, stable isotopes etc.) through acetylation, placing amide at C-terminus and using peptide-protein conjugates (KLH, OVA, BSA, Diphtheria toxoid).

The laboratory develops and produces a range of customized synthetic peptides, bio conjugates and peptide-specific antibodies for research institutes, universities and pharma companies. It also synthesizes peptides as substrates for enzymes or perform modifications of peptides with specific properties that cannot be created naturally, mainly for use in drug research and also to produce complete immunization services.

Founded in 2000, PSL is a private-owned company. Further information at:
