By Yoshimitsu Hamano

Microorganisms are able to generating a large choice of biopolymers. Homopolymer peptides, that are made of just a unmarried form of amino acid, are a long way much less ubiquitous. the single amino-acid homopolymers recognized to take place in nature are awarded during this quantity.
Poly-epsilon-L-lysine is a polycationic peptide and indicates antimicrobial job opposed to a large spectrum of microorganisms. it truly is either secure and biodegradable and is for this reason used as a nutrients preservative in numerous international locations. furthermore, there was nice curiosity in clinical and different purposes of poly-lysine and its derivatives.
In distinction, poly-gamma-glutamic acid is an strange anionic polypeptide. it's also water soluble, biodegradable, suitable for eating, non-toxic and non-immunogenic and will be chemically changed to introduce a variety of medicines. those positive factors are very valuable for pharmaceutical and biomedical functions. Poly-glutamic acid can also be a hugely appealing as a meals ingredient.
