A synthetic, DDT-binding and degrading polypeptide containing 24 amino acid residues is only one of many biologically and medicinally important peptides which have been prepared in the last few years. Synthetic peptides find use in investigations of structure-function relations of polypeptides, as peptide hormones and hormone analogues, in the preparation of cross-reacting antibodies, and in the design of novel enzymes.
