The synthesis of an orthogonally protected constrained analogue of dipeptide DG (Asp-Gly) is reported exploiting alkylation of a chiral lactam. The versatility of this analogue was proven by removal of t-Boc protecting group, followed by coupling under homogeneous conditions with t-Boc-Arg(Z 2)-Gly, to give a conformationally restricted analogue of RGDG tetrapeptide.
