The conjugate of jasmonic acid and tetrapeptide as a novel promising biologically active compound†
A novel biologically active compound, the conjugate of jasmonic acid and tetrapeptide, has been obtained. The newly synthesized conjugate was characterized using MS, NMR and FTIR spectroscopy. The purity and melting point of the conjugate were determined using a differential scanning calorimetry technique. The safety of topical application of the conjugate was theoretically estimated. The obtained compound may exhibit the activity of jasmonic acid as well as that of tetrapeptide, therefore it is expected to have a promising effect on the skin.
