The purpose of the present invention is to provide a cross-linked peptide containing a novel non-peptide cross-linked structure, and a method for synthesizing the same. A cross-linked peptide having a novel non-peptide cross-linked structure, a useful intermediate for synthesizing the cross-linked peptide, and a method for synthesizing the novel cross-linked peptide and the intermediate are provided. The cross-linked peptide is characterized by having an NR bond in the cross-linked structure. By using the method for synthesizing the cross-linked peptide, a cross-link can be freely designed and an change can be freely made to a cross-link.


A reagent for organic synthesis with which a chemical reaction can be conducted in a liquid phase and unnecessary compound(s) can be easily separated at low cost from the liquid phase after completion of the reaction. The reagent for organic synthesis reversibly changes from a liquid-phase state to a solid-phase state with changes in solution composition and/or solution temperature, and is for use in organic synthesis reactions. This reagent for organic syntheses facilitates process development. With the reagent, research on and development of, e.g., medicines through, e.g., compound library synthesis, etc. can be accelerated. It can hence contribute to technical innovations in the biochemical industry and chemical industry.

We demonstrate that disulfide bond replacement is an efficient strategy for engineering therapeutic peptides. In previous work, short peptide fragments, known as WP9QY, with sequence homology with the predicted ligand contact surface of the receptor activator of NF-κB (RANK) were crosslinked through intramolecular disulfide bonds to inhibit RANK ligand (RANKL)-induced signaling, osteoclastogenesis, bone resorption in vitro, and bone loss in vivo. We report that replacement of the disulfide bond of WP9QY with an amine cross-linkage results in a significant improvement in enzymatic stability, with only a slight loss of bone resorption-blocking activity in vitro. Furthermore, the WP9QY derivative inhibits bone loss significantly in vivo, whereas the native form of WP9QY was not effective under the same conditions. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
