Feedback form is now closed.
The c-Jun transcription factor is responsible for the proliferation of cancer at the AP-1 gene complex. Based on it's leucine zipper structure, synthetic peptides can be designed to bind to c-Jun monomers, leaving c-Jun unable to transcribe these cancer-related genes. Non-canonical and beta-amino acids can be implemented into synthetic peptides, which will affect binding capabilities.
