Abstract

The synthesis is described of a [D-Ala2]-deltorphin I peptoid analogue in which all amino acid residues have been substituted by the corresponding N-alkylglycine residues. The [D-Ala2]-deltorphin I retropeptoid was also prepared as well as [Ala1 ,D-Ala2]-deltorphin 1 and the corresponding peptoid. Structural investigations by FT-IR and fluorescence measurements were carried out on the synthetic analogues and on some [D-Ala2]-deltorphin 1 peptide-peptoid hybrids previously prepared. According to the fluorescence measurements the distance between the aromatic residues in the deltorphin I peptoid and retropeptoid is similar to that suggested for the delta- and micro-opioids, respectively. Measurements of CD in the presence of beta-cyclodextrin, and some preliminary pharmacological experiments were also performed. No dichroic bands are present in the spectrum of the [Ntyr1,D-Ala2]-deltorphin I, but an increasing dichroic effect appears in the spectra of both the deltorphin I peptoid and retropeptoid. Activity tests on isolated organ preparations showed that the modifications made produced a dramatic decrease in the agonistic activity of the synthetic derivatives.
