Though 2-mercaptoethanol and thioglycolic acid reacted homogeneously from beginning to end, gelation was recognized upon reaction of allylated and vinylbenzylated PMIA with 1,2-ethanedithiol.
On the other hand, the weight loss of PMIA derivatives on heating was reduced by the reaction of unsaturated groups introduced in PMIA with 1,2-ethanedithiol because of the formation of a crosslinking structure as shown in Fig.
2]-Cys-Val-Asn-Thr-Pro-Glu-His-Val-Val-Pro-Tyr-Gly-Leu-Gly -Ser-Pro-Arg-Ser-COOH) was produced in our laboratory by solid-phase synthesis in an Applied Biosystems (Roissy CD6, France) 431-A synthesizer with 9-fluorenylmethyloxycarbonyl-tert-butyl chemistry on a p-hydroxymethylphenoxymethyl-polystyrene resin, and was cleaved in the presence of phenol, 1,2-ethanedithiol, trifluoroacetic acid, and thioanisole.
