In this new convergent peptide synthetic approach the advantages of the Fmoc and Boc techniques are combined. Boc-protected peptide fragments prepared on 2-chlorotrityl resin by Fmoc-technique were coupled sequentially in solution. As an example, the C-terminal (91-131) part of the agouti protein comprising all the 5 disulfide bridges in the original molecule has been synthesized by this method.
