Methionine and seleno-methionine type peptide and peptoid building blocks synthesized by five-component five-center reactions

Abstract

A first example of 5-component 5-center reactions with isonitriles [Ugi-5CRs] is described. The extended Ugi type reactions involve selenoaldehydes as well as ammonia, both challenging reactants in multicomponent (MCR) systems, to generate methionine and Se-methionine moieties and derivatives as protected building blocks or for direct ligation in peptides or peptoids. The peptoid/peptide building blocks proved to be non-cytotoxic but increased the expression of genes encoding for stress protective selenoproteins (Gpx1).
