Custom peptides synthesis
Our long standing expertise in the synthesis of disulfide bridged peptides, utilizes stepwise protection or natural folding strategies to form single or multiple disulfide S-S bonds.
S-S Bond Formation
Peptide disulfide bridges are typically formed between two cysteine residues within a peptide sequence (intramolecular),
or between cysteine residues in two different peptide chains (intermolecular/interchain).
The cysteine residues can be located at the peptide N-terminus, C-terminus, or internally.
1-3 disulfide S-S bridges
We can utilize orthogonal protection strategies to control specific bond formations for peptides containing 1-3 bridges.
≥4 disulfide bridges
formed naturally by creating the most thermodynamically stable product
Intermolecular disulfide bridge(s) are formed between cysteine residues of two (or more) peptide chains
- Stabilization of secondary conformations
- Templates for novel drug development via engineering favorable properties into biologically active compounds
- Scaffolding that forms biochemical tools to probe disease mechanisms such as Protein-Protein Interactions
- Generation and screening of disulfide-based macrocyclic ligands libraries towards target affinities eg. RGD sequence motifs
MALDI matrix cluster ions as internal references for ion mobility measurements.
