Regioselective nitration of N(alpha),N(1)-bis(trifluoroacetyl)-L-tryptophan methyl ester: efficient synthesis of 2-nitro and 6-nitro-N-trifluoroacetyl-L-tryptophan methyl ester

Nitration of N(alpha),N(1)-bis(trifluoroacetyl)-l-tryptophan methyl ester with HNO(3) in acetic anhydride at 0 degrees C provides N(alpha)-trifluoroacetyl-2-nitro-l-tryptophan methyl ester in 67% yield, whereas nitration in trifluoroacetic acid at 0 degrees C gives N(alpha)-trifluoroacetyl-6-nitro-l-tryptophan methyl ester in 69% yield.

Kyotorphin (KTP), an antinociceptive dipeptide (Tyr-Arg), is formed by KTP synthetase from L-Tyr and L-Arg in the brain. We examined the effects of various L-Arg analogues on immunoreactive KTP (iKTP) formation by KTP synthetase purified partially...
