ABSTRACT Many macrocyclic depsipeptides or related compounds have interesting medicinal properties and often display more favorable pharmacokinetic properties than linear analogues. Therefore, there is considerable interest in the development of large combinatorial libraries of macrocyclic peptidomimetic compounds. However, such molecules cannot be easily sequenced by tandem mass spectrometry, making it difficult to identify hits isolated from library screens using one bead one compound libraries. Here we report a strategy to solve this problem by placing a methionine in both the linker connecting the cyclic molecule to the bead as well as within the cycle itself. Treatment with CNBr both linearizes the molecule at a specific position and releases the molecule from the bead, making its characterization by tandem MALDI mass spectrometry straightforward.

    ABSTRACT: One-bead one-compound (OBOC) combinatorial peptide libraries have been used to identify ligands and modulators for a wide variety of biological targets. While being very efficient with linear peptides, OBOC libraries with N-terminally blocked peptides or with unsequenceable building blocks require encoding. To fully exploit OBOC combinatorial methods with cyclic peptides and peptidomimetics, topologically segregated bilayer beads have been developed. This strategy offers the opportunity to synthesize two compounds per bead, i.e. with one compound exposed on the bead surface for screening, and the other one found within the inner layer as a tag for sequencing and compound identification. Bead segregation often involves the use of unstable derivatives or requires a series of protection–deprotection steps. In order to expedite and optimize bead segregation, the performance of various reagents has been studied. The results obtained herein show that bead segregation can be efficiently performed with commercially available reagents. Finally, in order to control outer/inner layer ratios in segregated beads, the effects of different parameters have been evaluated. We report a straightforward and efficient procedure to prepare topologically segregated bilayer beads in a wide range of controllable, predictable, and reproducible outer versus inner ratios.

    ABSTRACT: One-bead-one-peptide libraries allow the screening of suitable ligands for any target protein. Short cyclic peptides are ideal ligands for affinity chromatography due to their high affinity and selectivity for the target protein and stability against proteases. We designed a library synthesis strategy to facilitate the identification of cyclic peptides by MS consisting in: a) sequential incorporation of a mixture of Fmoc-Ala-OH and Fmoc-Asp[2-phenylisopropyl (OPp)]-OH (15:85) to Gly-oxymethylbenzamide-ChemMatrix (Gly-HMBA-CM) resin, b) synthesis of the combinatorial library on the resin by the divide-couple-recombine method, c) removal of OPp with 4% TFA, d) peptide cyclization on solid phase through side-chain Asp and amino terminus, e) removal of side chain protecting groups with a 95% TFA cocktail. Peptides were cleaved from the beads with ammonia and the linear code was sequenced by MALDI-TOF MS/MS. The high capacity of ChemMatrix resin together with the sensitivity of MS allows code sequencing from a single bead.
