Solid phase synthesis of the protected 27--42 hexadecapeptide of the heavy chain from myeloma immunoglobulin M603. Elimination of side reactions associated with glycyl-2-oxypropionyl-resin

A fully protected 27--42 hexadecapeptide of the variable region of myeloma immunoglobulin M603 was synthesized on a 2-bromopropionyl-resin by the solid phase method. Side reactions due to cyclization of glycyl-2-oxypropionyl-resin were studied under different reaction conditions. The loss of peptide chains at the dipeptide and tripeptide stages due to diketopeperazine formation was also examined. These side reactions were circumvented by using a combination of fragment and stepwise coupling methods. The synthesized protected peptide was removed from the resin in 85% yield by photolysis, and purified by crystallization and by chromatography on a Sephadex LH-60 column.

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.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.

Artificial Intelligence in Cardiac Imaging

Artificial intelligence (ai) techniques are increasingly applied to cardiovascular (cv) medicine in cardiac imaging analysis. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.
