elemento octarepetido


Explanation:
Según entiendo, se trata de una secuencia de octapéptidos (https://webs.um.es/jalozate/recursos-docentes/Areas/General/... que se repite en un polipéptido o una proteína. Ciertamente no pude encontrar ejemplos traducidos en español, pero creo que iría por este camino.

agree  Chema Nieto Castañón: Me resulta más natural tu alternativa (secuencia de octopéptidos repetidos), aunque la variabilidad terminológica en castellano en este contexto es enorme...

  -> Thanks Chema, I can't really comment much about how natural they sound in Spanish... ;@) I never even considered "octo/octa".

Elemento octapéptido repetido


Explanation:
Los elementos que se repiten, ya sean péptidos o nucleótidos, se denominan repetidos, y en este caso, la secuencia repetida es un octapéptido.

En realidad sería un elemento octapeptídico, pero creo que la mayoría de los bioquímicos dirían octapéptido.
