Bachem offers for free a series of flyers on selected groups of products in peptide research.


alpha-Methyl Amino Acids
Bachem’s portfolio of α-methyl amino acids has been extended by a set of new innovative products, produced by our partner DOTTIKON Exclusive Synthesis AG. α-Methyl amino acids can be obtained by various methods such as Cα-methylation of N,N-disubstituted amino acid derivatives in the presence of a chiral catalyst. The proprietary approach of Maruoka et al. starting from N-p-chlorobenzylidene amino acid esters is especially suited for the modification of aromatic amino acids. A biphenyl-derived chiral phase-transfer catalyst promotes enantioselective alkylation.

Cardiovascular Research
We are pleased to present a selection of our products for cardiovascular research. The functions of the cardiovascular system such as the blood flow are regulated by numerous peptide hormones. Dysregulations of the system as hypertension may lead to grave cardiovascular diseases. Approaches for developing medication target the receptors of the involved hormones with agonists or antagonists.

Cell Culture
We are pleased to present a selection of our products for cell culture. The composition of cell culture media has to be optimized for survival and growth of the various cell types. Inadequate growth media may lead to apoptosis. Cultured cells require supplemental amino acids as building blocks for protein synthesis. Short peptides have also been evaluated as supplements. Besides being used as source of amino acids, the peptides may positively influence cell growth and proliferation.

Cell Permeable Peptides
Cell-permeable peptides are short peptides able to pass the cell membrane. CPPs have found use for transporting cargo molecules as fluorophores, drugs, nucleic acids or proteins into cells. Typically, CPPs contain a large proportion of positively charged amino acids, especially arginine, or an alternating sequence of charged and non-polar residues.

Click Chemistry
The azido group reacts with acetylenes in the presence of Cu/CuSO4 yielding triazoles. This highly selective reaction can be applied for the conjugation of peptides with various molecules and for the cyclization of peptides. The azido moiety may also be considered as a protected amino group which is deblocked under reductive conditions. Aromatic azido compounds such as p-azidophenylalanine are building blocks for synthesizing photocrosslinkable peptides. We are pleased to present a choice of our alkyne and azido derivatives.
