The design, synthesis and binding affinity for VEGFR-1 receptors of a small library of linear and cyclic analogues of the VEGF(81-91) fragment are described. Cyclic 11- and 10-mer peptide derivatives were prepared using parallel solid-phase protocols. The formation of hydrocarbon alkene-bridged cyclic peptides was achieved through optimized ring-closing(More)
The design, synthesis, conformational studies and binding affinity for VEGFR-1 receptors of a collection of linear and cyclic peptide analogues of the β-hairpin fragment VEGF(81-91) are described. Cyclic 11-mer peptide derivatives were prepared from linear precursors with conveniently located Cys, Asp or Dap residues, by the formation of disulfide and amide(More)
The design, synthesis, conformational studies and binding affinity for VEGF receptors of a collection of linear and cyclic peptide analogues of the N-terminal α-helix fragments 13-25 of VEGF and 1-13 of Vammin are described. Linear 13(14)-mer peptides were designed with the help of an AGADIR algorithm and prepared following peptide solid-phase synthetic(More)
Synthetically versatile and easy to carry out, Ring-Closing Metathesis (RCM) constitutes an attractive chemical tool, easily amenable for multiple substrates in mild conditions. In medicinal chemistry, the use of RCM has been especially prolific during the last few years. An important application that has benefited from this reaction is the stabilization of(More)
