Covalent modification with fatty acids is observed in several proteins that play crucial roles in cellular physiology. In this paper, a convenient method for the generation of multiple fatty acylated synthetic peptides is described. Peptides were synthesized using solid phase procedures with fluorenylmethoxycarbonyl α-amino protected amino acids. Acetamidomethyl protected cysteines were employed. The thiol protecting group was selectively deprotected and acylation was carried out on the resin-bound peptides. The strategy described in this report is applicable to any peptide sequence.
