Prolonged acidic treatment of Boc-Leu-Asp(OBut)-Phe-NH2 with 4N HCl in acetic acid resulted in H-Leu-Asc-Phe-NH2 . HCl(Asc, aminosuccinyl), which transformed partially to cyclo[Leu-Asp(Phe-NH2)] during its purification by column chromatography on silica gel with a mixture of ethyl acetate/pyridine/acetic acid/water = 60:20:6:11, i.e. in neutral medium. Examination of the imide formation was extended to different reaction conditions (no imide derivative was detected in trifluoroacetic acid), to several protected derivatives of L-aspartyl-L-phenylalaninamide and to tripeptides containing an aspartyl residue in the middle position. It was clearly demonstrated that in strongly acidic media the imide derivatives are directly formed from the aspartyl peptides containing a free beta-carboxyl group. The influence of the C-terminal residue was greater than the N-terminal on both the rate of formation of the imide and its further transformation to piperazine-2,5-dione derivative. In aqueous ethanol the X-Asc-Y-NH2 (X, Pro, Leu; Y, Gly, Ala, Val, Phg, Phe) containing N-terminal proline are more readily transformed to piperazine-2,5-dione derivatives, but compared to simple proline dipeptides the rate of this transformation is relatively s...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
