Bigger, Better, Faster: New Tools for Chemical Protein Synthesis, Upcoming Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Share Article

In this free webinar, the featured speaker will discuss why “helping hand” traceless linkers are a valuable tool for solubilizing difficult peptide segments, and how templated ligations greatly accelerate ligations and can rescue otherwise suboptimal ligation junctions. Attendees will learn about how the computational simulation of potential chemical protein synthesis routes can be used to predict optimal synthesis strategies.

The Kay lab at the University of Utah is focused on D-peptide inhibitor development, which requires the chemical synthesis of mirror-image protein targets. This webinar will describe the use of recently developed chemical and computational tools to accelerate chemical protein synthesis of large proteins. Specific topics will include recently developed next generation “helping hand” traceless linkers to improve peptide solubility, the use of traceless templating to accelerate ligations and their automated ligator program (Aligator) for prediction of the optimal synthetic routes.

Join Michael S. Kay, Professor Biochemistry, University of Utah School of Medicine, in a live webinar on Friday, November 13, 2020 at 12pm EST.
