This review is aimed to provide a concise yet extensive survey of key short bioactive peptide sequences for a range of applications ranging from biomaterials development to peptides with therapeutic uses. The following are considered: cell adhesion motifs, structural peptides, cell-penetrating and tumor-homing peptides, antimicrobial peptides, peptide hormones, growth factors and matrix metalloprotease substrates, neuropeptides, amyloid peptides, antioxidant peptides, peptide affinity tags, anticancer peptides, and others. This review provides a convenient resource, summarizing a broad range of important sequences with great utility as a resource concerning both small peptide drugs and also novel biofunctional peptide-based materials.
