The demand for peptide drugs is increasing and in this context, “post-assembly (or posttranslational) peptide modification strategies” by chemical manipulation of intact oligo-peptides has provided several analogues. Compounds prepared by this method are useful therapeutic molecules for structure activity studies. Herein, we describe various chemical methods such as cross-coupling reactions, cycloaddition reactions, radical reactions and ring-closing metathesis reactions that are useful for posttranslational peptide modifications.

Keywords: sequencing, human genome, peptide, oxidation, biomimetic cyclization, crosscoupling reactions, photoaffinity
