Abstract:
The free-radical-based selective desulfurization of cysteine residue is an e cient protocol to achieve ligations at alanine sites in the synthesis of polypeptide and proteins. In this work, the mechanism of desulfurization process has been studied using the density functional theory methods. According to the calculation results, the desulfurization of the thiol group occurs via a three-steps mechanism: the abstraction of hydrogen atom on the thiol group with the radical initiator VA-044 (2,2′-azobis[2-(2-imidazolin-2-yl)propane]dihydrochloride), the removal of S atom under the reductant TCEP (tris(2-carboxyethyl)phosphine), and the formation of RH molecule (with the regeneration of RS radical). The second step (desulfurization step) is the rate-determining step, and the adduct t-BuSH facilitates the desulfurization of cysteine via bene ting the formation of the precursor of the desulfurization step.

多肽合成中半胱氨酸选择性脱硫的反应机理
田燕,王莉,石景*,于海珠*
摘要:
基于自由基机理的半胱氨酸残基的选择性脱硫方法是多肽合成中实现丙氨酸连接位点的一种有效的策略. 运用密度泛函理论方法对这一脱硫过程的反应机理进行详细的理论研究. 计算结果表明, 硫醇基团的选择性脱硫经历了三个反应步骤:在自由基引发剂VA-044作用下失去巯基H原子;与还原剂三羧甲基磷酸作用脱除S原子;生成RH分子(伴随有RS自由基的产生). 其中,第二步脱除S原子过程为该反应的决速步骤. 同时添加物t-BuSH分子的加入促进了RS 自由基的产生,从而在一定程度上促进了半胱胺残基的选择性脱硫进程.
