[A transformylation reaction--transfer of an N-formyl residue to amino acids and peptides in nucleophilic groups--as a side reaction of peptide synthesis].

Journal Article (English Abstract;Journal Article)

The formyl group transfer from N-formyl amino acids and their derivatives to other acceptors--amino acids esters and aniline, was studied. Formylamino acids with the free alpha-carboxyl group are more effective donors in transformylation than formyl peptides or esters of formylamino acids.
