Synthetic peptides caged on histidine residues with a bisbipyridyl ruthenium(II) complex that can be photolyzed by visible light

Abstract

We report a light-sensitive histidine building block for Fmoc/tBu solid-phase peptide synthesis in which the imidazole side chain is coordinated to a ruthenium complex. We have applied this building block for the synthesis of caged-histidine peptides that can be readily deprotected by irradiation with visible light, and demonstrated the application of this approach for the photocontrol of the activity of Ni(II)-dependent peptide nucleases.
