The discovery of a freezing-induced peptide ligation during the total chemical synthesis of human interferon-ε

A counterintuitive freezing-induced peptide ligation was discovered in the total synthesis of human interferon-ε (hIFN-ε) which blocks HIV infection through unique mechanisms. The successful synthesis of hIFN-ε (187 amino acids) in this research laid the foundation for related anti-AIDS drug development. Mor Chemical biology in OBC
