Solid-Phase Peptide Synthesis of Analogues of the N-Terminus A-ring Fragment of the Lantibiotic Nisin: Replacements for the Dehydroalanine (Dha) Residue at Position 5 and the First Incorporation of a Thioamide Residue
Manzor, Kim; Ó Proinsias, Keith; Kelleher, Fintan
A number of A-ring analogues of the lantibiotic nisin, containing replacements for the Dha at position 5, have been successfully prepared by solid-phase peptide synthesis. The Dha replacements include glycine, alanine, phenylalanine, serine and 1-aminocyclopropyl carboxylic acid (ACCa). The incorporation of a thioamide-isoleucine residue at position 4 is also described and is the first report of the preparation of a lantibiotic ring fragment containing a thioamide link.
