Disulfide-Rich Peptide (DRP) is a general term for peptides of about 20 to 60 amino acid residues with three or more disulfide bonds in the molecule. It has a tight molecular structure due to multiple intramolecular disulfide bonds, and is a molecule with high stability against heat, acid, and degrading enzymes compared to linear peptides. DRP exists widely in the natural world from bacteria to humans, but it is also found in animal venom, and is a functional peptide that has evolved as a major component of venom so that it has a strong effect even in a small amount. In recent years, it has attracted attention as a new drug discovery base molecule because it has excellent functions as a highly active and highly selective natural agonist.
