Synthetic peptides are increasingly important in biochemical, pharmacological, neurobiological, enzymological and molecular biological research. Use of Fmoc as temporary amino-protecting group allows solid-phase peptide synthesis with a milder acid cleavage process. Other advances in the ligation approach provide further potential for peptide synthesis.
