Fmoc-MeDbz-OH is a linker for the synthesis of peptide thioesters by Fmoc solid phase peptide synthesis. It represents the second generation of the diaminobenzoic acid linker developed by Blanco-Canosa and Dawson. After Fmoc removal the resin is being acylated with the first amino acid and then peptide synthesis is carried out. Notably, the 4-N-methyl group suppresses the formation of side products on the para-amino moiety as the presence of the methyl group makes this position less reactive. Following chain assembly, the resin is being activated by treatment with p-nitrophenyl chloroformate, followed by treatment with a base such as diisopropylethylamine (DIEA) leading to the formation of the N-acyl-N’-methyl-benzimidazolinone (MeNbz) resin. TFA cleaves the fully deprotected peptide benzimidazolinone which can be converted to a thioester with an aryl thiol or used directly in native chemical ligation.
