An efficient approach for the synthesis of a series of S-acyl peptides containing internal cysteine residues has been developed and the chemical long-range ligation of these S-acyl peptides via 5-, 8-, 11- and 14-membered cyclic transition states has been investigated. Our results include the first examples of successful isopeptide ligations starting from(More)
The intramolecular long-range S → N acyl migration via 13-, 15-, and 16-membered cyclic transition states to form native tetra- and pentapeptide analogues was studied on S-acylcysteine peptides containing β- or γ-amino acids. The pH-dependency study of the acyl migration via a 15-membered cyclic transition state indicated that the reaction is favored at a(More)
