Making up for lost time: The one-pot synthesis of crambin (see structure) with only a single final purification step gave the target protein of exceptional purity in only two days with an overall yield of ≈40%. Three unprotected peptide segments were linked by native chemical ligation, and the polypeptide chain assumed its 3D structure without intermediate purification steps.
