Laboratories which take in a high volume of aqueous samples will know that every sample is different. Samples can contain varying amounts of suspended particulates and/or sediment due to either the source of the water, or the collection technique. Still other samples may form precipitates under elevated pH conditions resulting in
emulsions. These types of samples have historically proven very challenging when using solid phase extraction (SPE).
1) Remember to add stir bar for efficient mixing. Catalysts, salts, or visible precipitate should be washed clear of head space and into solution. Particles adhering to glass head space could cause excessive heating increasing possibility of failure of vial. Stay within specified vial volume range (see diagram for proper filling).

A branched peptidoglycan mimic and a tetra-branched antimicrobial peptide analogue were synthesized on a lysine scaffold using Biotage® Initiator+ Alstra™ microwave peptide synthesizer. These peptide modifications are challenging to synthesize and automate, however, the procedure was operationally simplified using Branches™.

It has recently been demonstrated that specific recognition of rhizobial bacteria by the signaling molecule Nod-factor receptor 5 (NFR5) relies on LysM domains. The LysM (lysine motif) domain is believed to be involved in the regulation of the interaction between plants and rhizobial bacteria to promote plant growth. The LysM domain is predicted to consist of two-α
helices and a two-stranded anti-parallel β-sheet in a β-α-α-β structure and has been identified in NFR5 by sequence alignment of the crystal structure with the LysM domain of Bacillus subtilis ykuD.2 The synthesis of the C-terminal and the N-terminal regions of LysM domains provide significant challenges, this is presumably due to the formation of β-sheet like structures, which are known to pose problems for peptide chain assembly.

C-terminal peptide aldehydes are key components in oxime and hydrazine ligations and their synthesis is therefore very desirable. A well established method for the synthesis of C-terminal modified peptides including peptide aldehydes, is the backbone amide linker (BAL) strategy (Scheme 1).1 In this strategy, the first amino acid is anchored by reductive amination followed by acylation of the newly formed secondary amine. Thus, the growing peptide chain is anchored not through the C-terminal carboxyl but through a backbone amide nitrogen giving access to, in principle, any C-terminal modification.

A number of biologically active natural products contain N-methyl amino acids. N-Methyl amino acid containing peptides are potentially useful therapeutics as they have improved pharmacological properties such as such as proteolytic stability, bioavailability, lipophilicity, enhanced potency and receptor selectivity. The synthetic challenges associated with the synthesis of peptides containing consecutive N-methyl amino acids are well known1,2 and often require coupling reagents such as PyBOP3, HATU4 or even triphosgene4 to obtain high coupling yields.

One of the current challenges in peptide science is the assembly of long peptides and small proteins, which has to overcome the accumulation of side-reactions and the hurdles posed by so-called difficult sequences. During the synthesis of difficult sequences the peptide chain most likely becomes partially inaccessible typically due to the formation of secondary structures, especially β-sheets, which can inhibit acylation and deprotection during synthesis, resulting in truncated sequences. In addition, steric hindrance from β-branched amino acids can be a problem.

We have demonstrated the capability of the Biotage® Initiator+ Alstra
microwave peptide synthesizer to fully synthesize branched and cyclic
peptides. The synthesis included specialized reactions of non-linear peptides and a high degree of purity was achieved. Furthermore, the Branches software feature provides an extensive overview for the scheduling and visualization of operations in order to make complex peptide modifications and is a great addition to the toolbox for the peptide chemist.
