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.

This application demonstrates the reproducible multiple peptide
synthesis on a Syro parallel peptide synthesizer equipped with Syro
heating blocks. Effective heat transfer combined with efficient vortex
mixing make this system a powerful tool for the synthesis of multiple
peptides with increased throughput capability.

The human β-amyloid (1-42), H-DAEFRHDSGYEVHHQKLVFFAEDVGSNKGAIIGLMVGGVVIA-NH2 (1), sequence is a wellknown difficult sequence to synthesize.1,2 This is due to its
high hydrophobicity at the C-terminus and on-resin aggregation. The peptide is known to be one of the main constituents in amyloid plaques in the brain of Alzheimer’s patients.
Synthetic amyloid peptides are essential research tools to study the molecular mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases, however, their solid-phase assembly is non-trivial.

• Biologically active peptides isolated from natural sources, e.g. marine sponges, often contain multiple N-methylated residues. Additionally, Nmethylation of synthetic peptides can improve pharmacokinetic properties like bio-availability and stability.

The TurboVap II sensor is designed to monitor the concentration process. It does this with light and logic. The sample tube stem sits in a light beam at about 0.8mL for 1mL tubes and at 0.5mL for the 0.5mL tubes. Every second, a microprocessor receives an indication of the change in optical density of the solution being concentrated. Small changes in optical density over a thirty second period are registered to memory and become the new initial or zero point for the sensor to look at the next change. When the sample is done and the meniscus crosses the sensor beam, a large change in optical density takes place and the TurboVap II beeps. The change for either dark or clear must persist for several seconds for the sensor to beep. At this point the gas flow stops and an alarm sounds to indicate that the sample is complete. When the attendant looks at the control panel, a blinking light indicates which position is complete.
