A biocatalytic route to the 'post-synthesis' formation of Asp/Glu-derived isopeptides is illustrated on the basis of the Staphylococcus aureus V8 protease used as the biocatalyst, a new type of substrate mimetics as the donor peptides, and several acceptor peptides varying in length and sequence.
This account reports on the development and function of novel substrate mimetics as artificial substrates for Glu-specific endopeptidases. Firstly, in an empirical way, various aliphatic and aromatic analogs of the already established carboxymethyl thioester-substrate mimetics were designed from simple structure-function relationship studies.
