The synthesis of an EDTA-like chelating peptidomimetic building block suitable for solid-phase peptide synthesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novo trifunctional EDTA-like peptidomimetic amino acid is described. This unique building block, which is prepared in a straightforward manner from commercialized starting materials, contains three moieties: a hexadentate chelating unit similar to that present in EDTA, and amino and carboxylic groups, which facilitate its introduction into the backbone of peptides using conventional SPPS. As a proof of concept, this building block is introduced into a cyclic peptide inspired from the family of Gratisin analogues. The designed peptide contains the amino acid analogue in one of the turns, and chelates Ca2+ with nanomolar affinity at physiological pH.
