Flexible Crosslinked Benzhydry Support for Gel-Phase Peptide Synthesis
Abstract:An amphiphilic support was developed by the suspension polymerization of styrene and 1,4-butanediol dimethacrylate. The copolymer was converted to benzhydryl resin, BDDMA-PS-BH, by a two-step polymer analogous reaction. This resin was employed as a support for the synthesis of delta sleep inducing peptide (DSIP), Trp-Ala-Gly-Gly-Asp-Ala-Ser- Gly-Glu, in high yield and purity by Fmoc / t-Bu tactics.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
