Facile Synthesis of Hydrocarbon-Stapled Peptides
Monday, July 02, 2007
This poster describes a versatile synthesis method for hydrocarbon-stapled peptides. Asymmetric synthesis of (S)-Fmoc-a-(2’-pentenyl)-alanine was successfully accomplished via an Ala-Ni (II)-BPB-complex  in three steps with a 40% total yield. The 12-mer peptide containing two a- pentenyl-alanines on positions 4 and 8 was synthesized by Fmoc solid phase synthesis method. After olefin metathesis and cleavage, the peptide was purified by HPLC to obtain the hydrocarbon-stapled peptide.
