Verena Gehmayr, Christa Mollay, Lorenz Reith, Prof. Dr. Norbert Müller and Dr. Alexander Jilek Inside Cover: Tight Binding of Transition-State Analogues to a Peptidyl-Aminoacyl-L/D-Isomerase from Frog Skin (ChemBioChem 13/2011) ChemBioChem 12
The inside cover picture shows an oriental fire-bellied toad (Bombina orientalis). Their skin secretions contain numerous biologically active peptides, some of which are subject to a post-translational stereo-inversion of the amide backbone. The scheme of this enzymatic reaction is also depicted. For details on the underlying mechanism, see the paper by A. Jilek et al. on p. 1996 ff.
