Abstract :

An amino oxy-containing peptide, the nucleophile partner for oxime ligations, is usually grafted ona NH2-peptide resin by activating a protected aminooxyacetic acid as an active ester. Here, we have shown that its subsequent coupling to NH2-peptide resin competes with the overacylation of the -NH-O-nitrogen and that the overacylation level increases with the basicity of the reaction mixture. Moreover, we found that overacylation is prevented when the COOH of the Aoa-derivatives is engaged in an amide bond. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
