The synthesis of a nonapeptide, the benzyl ester of Nα-benzyloxycarbonyl-S-benzyl-L-cysteinyl-γ-benzyl-L-glutamyl-L-leucyl-S-benzyl-L-cysteinyl-Nim-benzyl-L-histidyl-L-threonyl-L-valyl-γ-benzyl-L-glutamyl-Nε-tosyl-L-lysine (XIII), and a heptapeptide, the benzyl ester of Nα-benzyloxycarbonyl-Nε-tosyl-L-lysyl-L-threonyl-nitro-L-arginyl-S3-benzyl-L-cysteinyl-γ-methyl-L-glutamyl-L-leucyl-S-benzyl-L-cysteine (VII), corresponding to the sequences 14–22 and 11–17 of yeast cytochrome c, has been effected.
