1. Acanthoscurrin fragment 101-132: total synthesis at 60 degrees C of a novel difficult sequence

Glycine-rich proteins (GRPs) serve a variety of biological functions. Acanthoscurrin is an antimicrobial GRP isolated from hemocytes of the Brazilian spider Acanthoscurria gomesiana. Aiming to contribute to the knowledge of the secondary structure and stepwise solid-phase synthesis of GRPs' glycine-rich domains, we attempted to prepare G(101)GGLGGGRGGGYG(113)GGGGYGGGYG(123) GGY(126)GGGKYK(132)-NH(2), acanthoscurrin C-terminal amidated fragment. Although a theoretical prediction did not indicate high aggregation potential for this peptide, repetitive incomplete aminoacylations were observed after incorporating Tyr(126) to the growing peptide-MBHA resin (Boc chemistry) at 60 degrees C. The problem was not solved by varying the coupling reagents or solvents, adding chaotropic salts to the reaction media or changing the resin/chemistry (Rink amide resin/Fmoc chemistry). Some improvement was made when CLEAR amide resin (Fmoc chemistry) was used, as it allowed for obtaining fragment G(113)-K(132). NIR-FT-Raman spectra collected for samples of the growing peptide-MBHA, -Rink amide resin and -CLEAR amide resin revealed the presence of beta-sheet structures. Only the combination of CLEAR-amide resin, 60 degrees C, Fmoc-(Fmoc-Hmb)Gly-OH and LiCl (the last two used alternately) was able to inhibit the phenomenon, as proven by NIR-FT-Raman analysis of the growing peptide-resin, allowing the total synthesis of desired fragment Gly(101)-K(132). In summary, this work describes a new difficult sequence, contributes to understanding stepwise solid-phase synthesis of this type of peptide and shows that, at least while protected and linked to a resin, this GRP's glycine-rich motif presents an early tendency to assume beta-sheet structures.
2. Evaluation of Lipopeptides as Toll-like Receptor 2 Ligands
Waleed M Hussein, et al. Curr Drug Deliv. 2017;14(7):935-943. doi: 10.2174/1567201813666160804114107.
Background: Peptide-based vaccines are considered to be the next generation of modern immunizations, as they are safe, easy to produce and well-defined. However, due to their weak immunogenic effect, it is important to first develop an appropriate adjuvant for peptide-based vaccines. Objective: The aim of this work was to synthesize a series of four adjuvanting moieties as alkyne derivatives, incorporating dipalmitoyl serine (DPS), 1,3-diglyceride (DG), two hexadecane lipoamino acids (diLAA), and 2,3-dipalmitoyl-S-glycerylcysteine (Pam2Cys). Next aim was to synthesize and attach the azide derivative of biotinylated J14 peptide (model B-cell epitope) to the alkynes through copper- catalyzed alkyne-azide 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition (CuAAC) reaction. Final aim was to test the ability of the final biotin labeled conjugates to directly interact with in vitro expressed TLR2 and 8 using AlphaScreen proximity assay. Method: All of the peptides were synthesized by manual stepwise solid phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) on rink amide MBHA resin using HATU/DIPEA Fmoc-chemistry. The target compounds were synthesized in a solution phase using CuAAC reaction. Results: Pam2Cys analogue bound to TLR2 as expected. Analogues of DPS and C16-LAA showed also affinity to TLR2, while it did not bind to the control protein (TLR8), demonstrating ability of the DPS and C16-LAA to be recognized by TLR2. Conclusion: Four alkyne derivatives of lipids were successfully synthesized and coupled to a biotinylated J14 peptide to give a series of self-adjuvanting ligands. These ligands showed different affinity to TLR2 upon testing by AlphaScreen assay. The DPS derivative showed the most promising affinity in comparison to the standard TLR2 agonist, Pam2Cys.
3. Cyclic Tripeptide-based Potent and Selective Human SIRT5 Inhibitors
Yanhong Jiang, Weiping Zheng Med Chem. 2020;16(3):358-367. doi: 10.2174/1573406415666190603101937.
Background: SIRT5 is one of the seven members (SIRT1-7) of the mammalian sirtuin family of protein acyl-lysine deacylase enzymes. In recent years, important regulatory roles of SIRT5 in (patho)physiological conditions (e.g. metabolism and cancer) have been increasingly demonstrated. For a better biological understanding and therapeutic exploitation of the SIRT5- catalyzed deacylation reaction, more effort on identifying potent and selective SIRT5 inhibitors beyond those currently known would be rewarding. Objective: In the current study, we would like to see if it would be possible to develop potent and selective SIRT5 inhibitory lead compounds with a novel structural scaffold than those of the currently known potent and selective SIRT5 inhibitors. Methods: In the current study, six N-terminus-to-side chain cyclic tripeptides (i.e. 8-13) each harboring the thiourea-type catalytic mechanism-based SIRT5 inhibitory warhead Nε-carboxyethylthiocarbamoyl- lysine as the central residue were designed, synthesized by the Nα-9- fluorenylmethoxycarbonyl (Fmoc) chemistry-based solid phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) on the Rink amide 4-methylbenzhydrylamine (MBHA) resin, purified by the semi-preparative reversedphase high performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC), characterized by the high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS); and were evaluated by the in vitro sirtuin inhibition assay and the in vitro proteolysis assay. Results: Among the cyclic tripeptides 8-13, we found that 10 exhibited a potent (IC50 ~2.2 μM) and selective (≥60-fold over the SIRT1/2/3/6-catalyzed deacylation reactions) inhibition against the SIRT5-catalyzed desuccinylation reaction. Moreover, 10 was found to exhibit a ~42.3-fold stronger SIRT5 inhibition and a greater proteolytic stability than its linear counterpart 14. Conclusion: With a novel and modular structural scaffold as compared with those of all the currently reported potent and selective SIRT5 inhibitors, 10 could be also a useful and feasible lead compound for the quest for superior SIRT5 inhibitors as potential chemical/pharmacological probes of SIRT5 and therapeutics for human diseases in which SIRT5 desuccinylase activity is upregulated.
