Abstracts
The enzymatic stability of synthetic methionine-enkephalin peptide analogues containing an
unnatural amino acid of the adamantane-type 3-5 was examined in human serum, at 37 °C, and
compared with the results of the degradation of the parent endogenous pentapeptide 1 and
the tripeptide, Tyr-Gly-Gly (2). Methionine-enkephalin (Tyr-Gly-Gly-Phe-Met, 1) and tripeptide
2 are rapidly degraded in 80 % human serum with half-lives of 12.2 and 23.0 minutes, respectively,
preferably by aminopeptidase cleavage of the N-terminal Tyr-Gly peptide bond. Incorporation
of the rigid and sterically hindered 1-adamantylglycine moiety into the peptide
sequence resulted in increased stability of compound 3, while compounds 4a and 5a were not
at all susceptible to the enzymes present in human serum. Strong binding of peptides 3-5 to human
serum proteins was demonstrated.
