What is liquid-phase peptide synthesis?

Liquid-phase peptide synthesis is a classical approach to peptide synthesis. It has been replaced in most labs by solid-phase synthesis (see below). However, it retains usefulness in large-scale production of peptides for industrial purposes.

What is solution phase peptide synthesis?

Abstract. Solution phase synthesis was the first developed and the only method for peptide synthesis until the solid phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) introduced by Merrifield revolutionized the way peptides and their analogues are prepared nowadays.

What is the first step in the solid phase peptide synthesis?

The concept of solid-phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) is to retain chemistry that has been proven in solution but to add a covalent attachment step that links the nascent peptide chain to an insoluble polymeric support (resin). Subsequently, the anchored peptide is extended by a series of addition cycles (Fig. 18.1. 1).

Why is peptide synthesis C to N?

Peptide synthesis most often occurs by coupling the carboxyl group of the incoming amino acid to the N-terminus of the growing peptide chain. This C-to-N synthesis is opposite from protein biosynthesis, during which the N-terminus of the incoming amino acid is linked to the C-terminus of the protein chain (N-to-C).

What is peptide synthesis used for?

Peptide synthesis is the process of making short sequences of polypeptides by adding one amino acid at a time. This process is useful for creating specific sequences that represent epitopes of certain protein domains that may or may not be modified by moieties, such as phosphate groups.

What is solid phase Peptide Synthesis explain with example?

Solid-phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) involves the successive addition of protected amino acid derivatives to a growing peptide chain immobilized on a solid phase, including deprotection and washing steps to remove unreacted groups and also side products.
