The Trends in Peptide and Protein Sciences (Trends Pept. Protein Sci.) is a peer-reviewed, online-only (previously print-online), scientific journal owned by Protein Technology Research Center, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences and publish the documents in all important aspects of the research in peptides and proteins focusing on analytics and impurities, bioinformatics, biopharmaceuticals and vaccines, biotechnology, chemical synthesis, conformational analysis, design and  development of protein therapeutics, determination of structure, enzymology, folding and sequencing,  formulation and stability, function, genetics,  immunology, kinetics, modeling, molecular biology, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of therapeutic proteins and antibodies, pharmacology,  protein engineering and development, protein-protein interaction, proteomics, purification/expression/production, simulation, thermodynamics and  hydrodynamics and protein biomarkers. The aim of this Journal is to publish high quality original research articles, reviews, short communications and letters and to provide a medium for scientists and researchers to share their findings from the area of peptides and proteins. The Trends in Peptide and Protein Sciences is published in collaboration with Iranian Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists.

The Trends in Peptide and Protein Sciences has been granted the Scientific-Research Rank  by the Commission of Medical Sciences Journals of Ministry of Health, Treatment and Medical Education of I.R. Iran.

From volume 3 (2018) of TPPS, articles are continuously published online only, as soon as the review process is completed.

Importance of Bioactive Peptides Derived from Cyanobacteria

Bahareh Alizadeh, Maryam Tabarzad

Trends in Peptide and Protein Sciences, Vol. 9 No. 1 (2024), 30 January 2024, Page 1-5 (e1)

Cyanobacterial peptides are a group of promising natural therapeutic agents that have been extensively studied in recent years. They can be valuable pharmaceuticals or lead compounds in developing novel therapeutics for various diseases, especially cancers, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases, which are the most important challenges of medicine today.


  • Cyanobacteria are a valuable source of natural metabolites, including bioactive peptides.
  • Cyanobacterial peptides include ribosomal synthesized and nonribosomal peptides (NRPs).
  • Therapeutic applications of cyanobacterial peptides in different diseases have been reported.
