Abstract The synthesis of fluorescence quenched peptide substrates of granzyme C is presented. These peptides which incorporate some unusual amino acids and have “difficult sequence” elements, in some cases could not be prepared by standard Fmoc-based SPPS. Application of three different contemporary strategies, namely the use of pseudoproline dipeptides, PEG-based solid supports and the application of microwave heating were able to provide for successful synthesis of our desired substrate peptides.
