A New Caged-Glutamine Derivative as a Tool To Control the Assembly of Glutamine-Containing Amyloidogenic Peptides

We present the design, synthesis, and characterization of a novel photocaged glutamine derivative (modified on the side chain of glutamine), and describe its use in enhancing peptide stability and solubility. Our results demonstrate that this approach can be used to develop molecular switches to control the folding and β-sheet formation of amyloidogenic peptides.
