Acceleration of thiol additive-free native chemical ligation by intramolecular S [rightward arrow] S acyl transfer

19 April, 2015 - 10:54

Chem. Commun., 2015, 51,7554-7557
DOI: 10.1039/C5CC01447F, CommunicationJ. Schmalisch, O. Seitz
The old dog and a new trick; mercaptopropionylcysteine (MPA-Cys) peptide thioesters show a surprisingly high reactivity in native chemical ligation (NCL) and allow thiol-additive free reactions. This facilitates sequential NCL reactions and ligation-desulfurization reactions in one-pot formats. The synthetic utility is demonstrated by the synthesis of a SH3 domain.
