Cyclic peptides containing a δ-sugar amino acid—synthesis and evaluation as artificial receptors
Forskningsoutput: Tidskriftsbidrag › Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift
An Fmoc-protected δ-sugar amino acid, prepared by oxidation of a glucosamine derivative, was coupled to three different tripeptide tert-butyl esters (H-Tyr-Tyr-Tyr-OtBu, H-Tyr-Glu(OBzl)-Tyr-OtBu and H-Tyr-Arg(Mtr)-Tyr-OtBu) and the resulting sugar amino acid/amino acid hybrids were transformed into dimers that were subsequently cyclized to give three C2-symmetric macrocycles. The macrocycles were deprotected and their binding properties towards p-nitrophenyl glycosides, nucleotides, and purines were examined. Of the ligands screened, only some of the purines showed weak, but significant, binding.
