(Equation Presented) We describe the design and synthesis of latex particles attached to an FR225659 derivative to identify its receptor proteins. Two key building blocks were prepared by two-step degradation of FR225659 under basic conditions. The designed ligand showed an acceptable level of biological activity to make it of potential value for use in affinity-supported receptor identification. Affinity purification of FR225659-binding proteins using the latex nanoparticles provided three candidate receptor peptides for the biological activity.
