Abstract This study of protease-catalyzed peptide synthesis reports the preparation of the COOH-terminal octapeptide amide of cholecystokinin. The octapeptide was assembled by chemical condensation of two tetrapeptide segments that had been synthesized through the concerted catalytic reactions of several proteases of different specificities. The resulting octapeptide derivative was subjected to catalytic transfer hydrogenation, followed by sulfation of its tyrosine residue and removal of the N alpha-protecting group. The homogeneous target peptide was obtained after purification via partition chromatography, gel filtration, and ion-exchange chromatography. The synthetic octapeptide stimulated amylase release from pancreatic acinar cells.
