A novel ring opening reaction of peptide N-terminal thiazolidine with 2,2′-dipyridyl disulfide (DPDS) efficient for protein chemical synthesis

A novel ring opening reaction of peptide N-terminal thiazolidine with 2,2′-dipyridyl disulfide (DPDS) efficient for protein chemical synthesis
In the protein chemical synthesis via native chemical ligation (NCL) method with three peptide segments, the N-terminal cysteine residue of middle segment is generally protected by thiazolidine ring. In this paper, we show the novel method for thiazolidine ring opening using 2,2′-dipyridyl disulfide (DPDS). The N-terminal thiazolidine was converted into S-pyridylsulfenylated cysteine residue with DPDS under acidic conditions, and this N-terminally Cys peptide protected with disulfide was applicable to NCL reaction without purification and deprotection steps. DPDS treatment did not remove other Cys protecting groups generally used for regioselective disulfide bond formation reactions. These results indicate that this thiazolidine ring opening reaction is quite useful for the protein chemical synthesis with three-segment NCL strategy.
