Peptide synthesis in aqueous-organic solvent mixtures with alpha-chymotrypsin immobilized to tresyl chloride-activated agarose.

alpha-Chymotrypsin was immobilized with a high coupling yield (up to 80%) to tresyl chloride activated Sepharose CL-4B.The immobilized enzyme was tested for its ability to synthesize soluble peptides from N-acetylated amino acid esters as acyl donors and amino acid amides as acceptor amines in water-water-miscible organic solvent mixtures. It was found that… (More)
