peptide bond cleavage
Utilization of a hypoxia-responsive amino acid is indispensable in the preparation of hypoxic tumor-specific peptidyl prodrugs. Bioreduction of a nitro group is among the most attractive triggering reactions in the hypoxia-responsive prodrugs. In this paper, design and synthesis of a reduction-responsive amino acid that induces peptide bond cleavage after reduction of the nitro group are described. Application to hypoxia-responsive peptide bond cleavage system is also reported.
