General description

4-Mercaptophenylacetic acid (MPAA), a thiol additive, is widely used in Native Chemical Ligation (NCL) reactions for selective and efficient ligation of peptide fragments.

Application

4-Mercaptophenylacetic acid has been used in the preparation of small ubiquitin-like modifier peptides from bis(2-sulfanylethyl)amido peptide via sequential native chemical ligation.
It can be used:
  • On-resin preparation of peptide-α thiophenylesters which are used in a chemical ligation process for the chemical synthesis of peptides.
  • In one pot deprotection of (acetamido-methyl)cysteine following native chemical ligation and/or desulfurization method for the preparation of peptides.
  • Palladium facilitated deprotection of N-terminal cysteine through native chemical ligation method for the preparation of synthetically challenging proteins.
