Peptide synthesis catalyzed by an antibody containing a binding site for variable amino acids

AddTime:2019-08-21

Combinatorial chemistry has recently burst on the scene as a valuable tool for the discovery of new drug candidates. The ability to synthesize hundreds of compounds for screening is a useful complement to rational drug design. There are many similarities between the design of new therapeutic agents and the development of new asymmetric ligands, the most important of which is the limitation of a rational design strategy. For this reason a program was begun that would allow the use of combinatorial technology in the development of new ligands for transition metal catalyzed asymmetric reactions. Because of the large number of catalytic reactions they are involved in the system was based around phosphine ligands. This paper reports the synthesis of phosphine derivatives of alanine, proline, and the aromatic amino acids tyrosine and hydroxyphenylglycine. Examples of the use of these amino acids in the synthesis of peptides possessing helical and -turn secondary structures are presented. Metal complexes of these peptide-based ligands are used in hydrogenation and alkylation reactions.
Monoclonal antibodies, induced with a phosphonate diester hapten, catalyzed the coupling of p-nitrophenyl esters of N-acetyl valine, leucine, and phenylalanine with tryptophan amide to form the custom peptide synthesis. All possible stereoisomeric combinations of the ester and amide substrates were coupled at comparable rates. The antibodies did not catalyze the hydrolysis of the dipeptide product nor hydrolysis or racemization of the activated esters. The yields of the dipeptides ranged from 44 to 94 percent. The antibodies were capable of multiple turnovers at rates that exceeded the rate of spontaneous ester hydrolysis. This achievement suggests routes toward creating a small number of antibody catalysts for custom peptide synthesis.
The three-dimensional arrangement of ammo acids in a protein dictates its biological properties One of the urgent challenges of modern biology is to decipher the relationship between the linear sequence of ammo acids and the conformation adopted by proteins Success is predicting protein conformation from the primary structure can be anticipated to permit rational design of therapeutic formulations to treat intractable human diseases and of probes for research in fundamental biological problems
