A novel acid-catalyzed isomerization of Aib-containing thiodipeptides


Lehmann, Jürg; Linden, Anthony; Heimgartner, Heinz (1999). A novel acid-catalyzed isomerization of Aib-containing thiodipeptides. Helvetica Chimica Acta, 82:888-908.

Abstract

The use of amino thioacids in the 'azirine/oxazolone method' led to completely epimerized Aib-containing endothiodipeptides (Aib = 2-aminoisobutyric acid). It could be established that the epimerization occurred during the acidic hydrolysis of the primarily formed dipeptide thioanilides in which the thiocarbonyl group was shifted from the last to the penultimate amino-acid residue. Several conditions for the hydrolysis were tested, and, in some of them, the degree of epimerization could be reduced. By treatment of the Aib-containing dipeptide thioanilides 21 with ZnCl2 in AcOH followed by HCl in AcOH, the isomeric endothiodipeptide anilides 25 were formed, i.e., the thiocarbonyl group was again shifted from the last to the penultimate amino acid residue. Under optimized reaction conditions, this novel isomerization proceeded in high yields and without any epimerization. Two conceivable mechanisms are proposed in Scheme 12. X-Ray diffraction analyses were performed for Z-Gly-Aib-Y(CS)-N(Me)Ph (21f) and the isomeric Z-Gly-Y(CS)-Aib-N(Me)Ph (25f).

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
