Synthesis of a cyclic analogue of the C-loop region of epidermal growth factor, containing 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid.


We report the synthesis of a cyclic analogue of epidermal growth factor sequence 33-42 with substitution of 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid for glycine at position 39 (N-acetyl-Cys-Val-Ile-Gly-Tyr-Ser-ACPCA-Asp-Arg-Cys-NH2). The analogue was synthesised by solid-phase methods, using t-Boc chemistry and acid-labile side-chain protecting groups. The use… (More)
