Linaclotide, a small 14‐mer peptide highly rich in cysteines, is currently in phase III clinical trials for the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders. The challenge in the assembly of linaclotide consists of achieving the correct and clean folding of its three disulfide bridges. For this purpose, a number of regioselective, semiregioselective, and random strategies have been studied. In addition to selecting distinct protecting groups for the thiol function, their position in the sequence… 
Ziconotide (ω‐conotoxin MVIIA)—Efficient solid‐phase synthesis of a linear precursor peptide and its strategic native folding
To develop an efficient synthesis for target peptide 1, systematic optimization studies were performed on solid‐phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) of precursor peptide 2 (linear 25‐mer) and its aqueous
Diaminodiacid Bridges to Improve Folding and Tune the Bioactivity of Disulfide-Rich Peptides.
TLDR
It is found that a single cystine-to-diaminodiacid replacement could significantly increase the folding efficiency of disulfide-rich peptides and thus improve their production yields.

TLDR
This minireview will focus on the regiospecific, stepwise construction of multiple disulfides used in the chemical synthesis of peptides, to serve a reference for peptide chemists conducting complex peptide syntheses and to stimulate the future development of disulfide methodologies.
A rapid and efficient method for the synthesis of selectively S-Trt or S-Mmt protected Cys-containing peptides
TLDR
This work has established a protocol for the synthesis of Cys-selective S-Trt or S-Mmt protected CYS-containing peptides, in a rapid way by fine-tuning the carbocation scavenger in the final acidolytic release of the peptide from the solid support in the classic SPPS.
Improving the Gastrointestinal Stability of Linaclotide
TLDR
This work designed and synthesized a series of linaclotide analogues employing a variety of strategic modifications and evaluated their gastrointestinal stability and pharmacological activity at its target receptor guanylate cyclase-C, finding all analogues had substantial improvements in gastrointestinal half-lives and most remained active at low nanomolar concentrations.
Orthogonal Cysteine-Penicillamine Disulfide Pairing for Directing the Oxidative Folding of Peptides.
TLDR
This strategy makes rational folding of multicyclic peptides without protecting groups, sequence manipulation, and complex synthetic reactions a reality, thus providing invaluable assets to peptide communities, and should greatly benefit the development of multi-cyclic peptide therapeutics and ligands.

TLDR
It is suggested that removal of only one disulfide bond is enough to significantly alter the folding of the peptide, suggesting that removal from the classical methods is not enough to cause significant changes in the structure of this peptide.
