Solid phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) based on Fmoc chemistry has become a commonly used technique in peptide chemistry, as it can be easily conducted using automated machine, and not requiring highly toxic HF in comparison to Boc-SPPS. With the fast development in the emerging field of protein chemical synthesis, many efforts have been endeavored aiming to find more efficient methods for preparing peptide fragments required in ligation reactions. This review briefly summarizes recent advances in the engineering and modification of Fmoc-SPPS-derived peptides, which can be used as the N-terminal fragments in a native chemical ligation (NCL) or NCL-type ligation reactions.
