New methods of peptide synthesis have yielded impressive successes in recent years in the preparation of many naturally occurring polypeptides. ACTH (Schwyzer and Sieber, 1963), glucagon (Wünsch, 1967), calcitonin (Sieber et al., 1968; Guttman et al., 1968), ferredoxin (Bayer et al., 1968), ribonuclease A (Denkewalter et al., 1969 ; Gutte and Merrifield, 1969), and human pituitary growth hormone (Li and Yamashiro, 1970) are representative of a large number of polypeptides which have been prepared chemically.
