A 10-mer overlapping peptide library has been synthesized for screening and identification of linear B-cell epitopes of severe acute respiratory syndrome associated coronavirus (SARS-CoV), which spanned the major structural proteins of SARS-CoV. One hundred and eleven candidate peptides were positive according to the result of PEPscan, which were assembled(More)
This paper describes our recent efforts to synthesize novel compound scaffolds integrating 2-quinoxalinol with privileged structures of 1,3-dihydro-benzoimidazol-2-one, 1,3-dihydro-benzoimidazole-2-thione, 3-hydroxy-1H-quinoxalin-2-one, 2H-benzo[1,4]oxazin-3-ol, 2H-benzo[1,4]thiazin-3-ol, and 1,3,4,5-tetrahydro-benzo[1,4]diazepin-2-one, respectively. Eight(More)
For decades, insulin has represented a preeminent synthetic target. Recently introduced "biomimetic" strategies based on convertible single-chain precursors require incorporation of a chemical linker or a unique proteolytic site, which limits their practicality. In this approach the A- and B-chains are linked by two sequential oxime ligations followed by(More)
This report presents an entirely chemical, general strategy for the synthesis of relaxin-2 and insulin-like peptide 5. Historically, these two peptides have represented two of the more synthetically challenging members of the insulin superfamily. The key synthetic steps involve two sequential oxime ligations to covalently link the individual A-chain and(More)
