Abstract

Multivalent protein-protein interactions including bivalent and trivalent interactions play a critical role in mediating a wide range of biological processes. Hence, there is a significant interest in developing molecules that can modulate those signaling pathways mediated by multivalent interactions. For example, multimeric molecules capable of binding to a receptor protein through a multivalent interaction could serve as modulators of such interactions. However, it is challenging to efficiently generate such multimeric ligands. Here, we have developed a facile solid-phase method that allows for the rapid generation of (homo- and hetero-) dimeric and trimeric protein ligands. The feasibility of this strategy was demonstrated by efficiently synthesizing fluorescently-labeled dimeric peptide ligands, which led to dramatically increased binding affinities (~400-fold improvement) relative to a monomeric 14-3-3σ protein ligand.
