Development of an efficient enzymatic production of gamma-D-glutamyl-L-tryptophan (SCV-07), a prospective medicine for tuberculosis, with bacterial gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase.

Abstract

Gamma-D-Glutamyl-L-tryptophan (SCV-07) is a prospective medicine for the treatment of tuberculosis, according to the phase two clinical trial. Because gamma-D-glutamyl-L-tryptophan has several reactive groups in its molecule, consists of D- and L-amino acids, and is connected by gamma-glutamyl linkage, its chemical synthesis is complicated. An efficient… (More)
