Expeditious Synthesis of a
Novel C,-Symmetric Receptor that
Binds Peptides Sequence-Selectively**
Seung So0 Yoon and W. Clark Still*
One of the most exciting recent advances in molecular recognition is the development of synthetic receptors or host molecules that bind biopolymers sequence-selectively.['] Among the
most selective of these is the C,-symmetric receptor 1.12]It binds
a variety of biooligomers, including glycosides and both N- and
C-protected peptides. with high stereochemical and functionalgroup selectivity. With simple peptides, for example, 1 binds L
peptide residues with enantioselectivities as high as 3 kcalmol( > 99 % ee). Though 1 is available by an optimized synthesis,[2b1
we sought related receptors that could be prepared by even
simpler methods and thus might find practical application to
problems of separation. In this regard, 2 and its derivatives are
Our synthesis of 2 (Scheme 1) began with the coupling of
three equivalents of pentafluorophenyl dimethyl trimesate to
one equivalent of 1,3.S-tri(aminomethyl)benzene to provide 3a
(78 % yield). Saponification of all six methyl ester groups and
activation as the hexakis(pentafluoropheny1) ester then gave 3 b
(30 % yield). This material underwent threefold coupling with a
( 3 R,4 R)-3,4-diaminopyrrolidinelinked to the dye Disperse Red
1 through a succinyl spacer;[31three 21-membered rings were
formed simultaneously, and the brilliant red receptor 2 was
obtained in 26 % yield. We should add that a variety of related
receptors can be prepared with other 1,2-diamines. For example, reaction of commercially available (1 R,2 R)-I ,2-diaminocyclohexane with 3 b yielded an analogous receptor (31 %
yield for the final tricyclization step) in which the pyrrolidine
rings are replaced by simple cyclohexanes.

Scheme 1. Synthesis of receptor 2.
To establish the binding properties of our new receptor 2, we
treated a dye-labeled receptor with a large collection or library
of potential substrates.[2d1The substrate library was synthesized
on 50-80 pm Merrifield polystyrene beads in such a way that
each bead carried a single library member. The binding experiment simply involved mixing red 2 with the bead-supported
library and selecting those beads that turned red. Thus binding
of 2 to the entire library (here ca. 50000 acylated tripeptides)
could be surveyed in a single experiment.
We used the polymer-supported substrate library[2d1of general structure 5 . We prepared the library using the split

attractive candidates. Receptors 1 and 2 are closely related in
that their cup-shaped binding cavities have both similar dimensions and analogous patterns on their peripheries of unassociated hydrogen-bond donors and acceptors for substrate binding.
In this communication, we describe a simple synthesis of 2 and
its binding properties as determined by complexation with an
encoded combinatorial library['] of around 50 000 acylated
tripeptide substrates. As we will show, 2 is a remarkably selective receptor for peptides.

synthesis.[41 Thus, the total possible number of different substrates in the library was 154 (50625). To allow for determination of the structure of the substrate on any bead that bound 2,
we employed the binary encoding method that uses electroncapture gas chromatography (ECGC) to analyze tag-encoded

In the binding assay, a sample of the above peptide library
(10 mg. ca. 10’ beads) was equilibrated with a 50m > M solution
of 2 in CHCI, (ca. 0.3 mL). After 24 h of agitation, approximately 1 % of the beads had developed deep red-orange colorations. These beads carried peptides that bound red 2 most
tightly.r61By measuring the concentration of 2 in solution over
the beads at equilibrium, we established that the assay allowed
selection of beads having association constants K, 2 3 000. Fifty
of these most deeply colored beads were picked under a microscope (4 x magnification), and their tag-encoded structural information was decoded by ECGC. The residue types found in
the peptides on these beads are listed in Table 1 .

In many ways, the binding selectivities of 2 are similar to
those recently reported for l.‘Zdl
Thus, both receptors show the
highest selectivity for residues at the terminus of the peptide
chain: they selectively bind certain R groups having three nonhydrogen atoms and AA3 = N5-trityl-Gln. However, 1 binds
AA3 = N5-trityl-~-Gln,whereas 2 prefers the D isomer. This
difference in enantioselection is rationalized by the enantiomeric patterns of hydogen bonding between substrate and groups at
the periphery of the binding cavities of 1 and 2 (Scheme 2).
Scheme 2 Schematic representation of receptors 1 and 2. Ar = aromatic ring;
- indicate exposed H-bond donors and acceptors, respectively.
According to molecular modeling, these groups surround the
opening to the binding cavity and are well positioned to bind
substrate through intermolecular hydrogen bonds. Other
donors and acceptors of 1 and 2 are unavailable for substrate
binding because they project away from the opening to the
binding cavity and further are involved in intramolecular hydrogen bonds.
Other selectivity differences between 1 and 2 are found at
AA2 (1 prefers L-Pro, 2 prefers Gly) and AA 1 (1 shows virtually
no selectivity, 2 prefers D-Pro, L-Pro or D-Ala) residues. Interestingly, the remarkable preference of 1 for R = cyclopropyl[2d1is
absent with 2. Neither 1 nor 2 bind peptides having

R = isopropyl. These and other selectivities were verified by
independent binding energy measurements with 2 that showed,
inter alia, that changing R = MOM to cyclopropyl or
AA 3 = N’-trityl-D-GIn to N’-trityl-L-Gln diminished binding
by 1.3 kcalmol-’ relative to the preferred substrate MOMCON5-trityl-~-Gln-Gly-~-Pro (AGh,nding= - 4.3 kcalmol- ’).
These results were obtained by resynthesizing selected substrate
sequences and using UV spectrophotometry to quantitate the
concentrations of free receptor both before and after treatment with a known quantity of the polymer-supported substrate.
We also carried out an analogous survey of 2 with a substrate
library having deprotected peptide side chains (Table 2). Measurement of the concentration of 2 at equilibrium indicated that,
in this case, the color assay allowed selection of substrates having K, 2 5 000.

Whereas our previous studies found 1 to have similar selectivities for protected and deprotected peptide substrates, receptor
2 bound a different set of peptides with the deprotected library.
It was most discriminating at the internal AA 1 site where Pro
was strongly preferred. In particular, 2 preferentially bound the
sequences with AA3 = D-Gh, AA2 = D amino acid, and
AAI = L-Pro (40% of beads) or with AA2 = L-Gln and
AA1 = D-Pro (40% of beads). The relationship between the
Pro configuration at the AA 1 position and both the configuration and position of the downstream Gln is particularly interesting. This novel Gln-Pro selectivity may reflect the presence of
hydrogen bonding between the Gln side chain and amides at the
bottom of 2’s binding cavity-a possibility not available to 1 .
The ability of 2 to selectively bind peptide spans with as many
as three residues is remarkable for such a small host molecule.
These studies and others soon to be reported suggest that a
variety of receptors similar in structure to 1 or 2 have significantly sequence-selective peptide binding properties and that
the specific selectivity of such a receptor can be controlled by
varying the details of its structure. While the full range of variations that can be tolerated without loss of binding affinity has
yet to be established, we have found that the full macrotricyclic
framework of 2 is necessary for peptide binding: deletion of the
central aromatic linker obliterates tight peptide binding as detected by our solid-phase color assay. Given the simplicity of 2’s
synthesis, its highly selective peptide-binding properties, and the
availability of many building blocks for the construction of
analogues, it is likely that a variety of C,-symmetric receptors
having a range of peptide sequence selectivies can be prepared
along the lines described here.

Previous studies have shown that the color assay readily distinguishes substrates
differing in binding energy by as little as 1.0kcalmol-'. Control experiments
established that head coloration reflects binding of the peptide and not the dye:
neither the dye nor the succinylated dye stained any of the library beads under
the assay conditions.
