Peptide Ligation–Desulfurization Chemistry at Arginine

11 May 2020

The utility of a new β‐thiol arginine building block in ligation–desulfurization chemistry has been demonstrated through reactions and kinetic studies with a range of peptide thioesters. Application of the method is highlighted by a one‐pot, kinetically controlled, rapid ligation to generate a 7 kDa MUC1 glycopeptide.
