Tuning the properties of a cyclic RGD-containing tetrapeptide through backbone fluorination

Author affiliations

Abstract

Stereoselective fluorination is investigated as a method for modulating the properties of a cyclic RGD-containing tetrapeptide. Three key outcomes of fluorination are assessed: (i) the effect on peptide cyclisation efficiency; (ii) the ability to fine-tune the molecular conformation; and (iii) the effect on the cyclic peptides’ biological activity. Fluorination is found to exert pronounced effects against all three criteria.
