Solution-phase synthesis of Aib-containing cyclic hexapeptides


Jeremic, Tatjana; Linden, Anthony; Heimgartner, Heinz (2004). Solution-phase synthesis of Aib-containing cyclic hexapeptides. Chemistry & Biodiversity, 1(11):1730-1761.

Abstract

The 18-membered Aib-containing cyclohexapeptides, cyclo(-Gly-Aib-Aib-Gly-Aib-Phe-) (22), cyclo(-Gly- Aib-Phe(2Me)-Gly-Aib-Aib-) (24a), cyclo(-Gly-Phe(2Me)-Aib-Gly-Aib-Aib-) (24b), and cyclo(-Gly- Phe(2Me)-Aib-Gly-Aib-Phe-) (25), have efficiently been synthesized by solution-phase techniques. The linear precursors 1a-1d were prepared by combining the 'azirine/oxazolone method' for incorporation of alpha,alpha-disubstituted alpha-amino acids (Aib, Phe(2Me)) into the peptide chains by classical peptide coupling methods for segment condensations. Deprotection of the amino and carboxy termini of 1a - 1d, followed by cyclization with DEPC as the coupling reagent, gave the above-mentioned cyclic hexapeptides 22, 24a, 24b, and 25 in good yields (26 - 57%) . The solid-state conformations of the linear hexapeptides 1d, 16 and 27, and of the cyclohexapeptides 22 and 25 have been established by X-ray crystallography.
