IL-15 is a potential target in rheumatoid arthritis. We had identified a peptide (P8) which inhibits binding of IL-15 to IL-15Rα and affects IL-15 biological activity. Here, we studied P8 peptide analogs based on Ala scanning and other punctual mutations. As a result, we found a more active peptide inhibiting both IL-15 biological activity and TNFα secretion by synovial cells
