The thiol group is protected by a disulphate bond following synthesis of the oligo and must be deprotected by a reducing agent before use. The reducing agent should be completely removed immediately before the oligo is used in a coupling reaction. DTT is most commonly employed as a reducing agent.
The best and most straight foward method is to use a heterobifunctional crosslinking reagent to link a synthetic peptide, containing an N-terminal lysine, to a 5'-Thiol modified oligo or conversely a 5'-amino modified oligo to a cysteine containing peptide . A good crosslinking reagent is N-Maleimido-6-aminocaproyl- (2'-nitro,4'-sulfonic acid)-phenyl ester . Na + (mal-sac-HNSA) from Bachem Bioscience (cat. # Q-1615). Reaction of this crosslinker with an amino group releases the dianion phenolate, 1-hydroxy-2-nitro -4-benzene sulfonic acid a yellow chromophore. The chromophore allows both quantitation of the coupling reaction as well as act as an aid in monitoring the seperation of "activated peptide" from free crosslinking reagent using gel filtration.
"The Thiol-ene Reaction for the Synthesis of ..
A catalytic method was developed to synthesize thiol esters from the reaction of acyl chlorides and thiols using zinc oxide as a catalyst under solvent-free conditions at room temperature. Mild reaction conditions, short reaction time, excellent yields of products and recyclability of the catalyst are noteworthy features of this methodology.

RESPONSE:No. However, this can be produced on the synthesizer by adding to the 5'- terminus first 5'-thiol-modifier C6 S-S (10-1936) followed by BioTEG phosphoramidite (10-1955). This should generate a biotinylated primer with a long spacer arm containing the disulfide linkage which can be cleaved later with DTT.
Disulfide synthesis by S-S coupling - Organic chemistry
Since similar reactions carried out without ammonia yielded alpha-hydroxy acid thioesters, the thiol-dependent synthesis of alanine and homoserine is presumed to occur via amino acid thioesters-intermediates capable of forming peptides.

The reactions proceed ...Alkynes react with thiols to produce the polysulfide networks composed solely of sulfur and hydrocarbon in a rapid one-step photoinduced mechanism.
The Thiol-yne reaction (also alkyne hydrothiolation) ..
Dendrimers up to the fourth generation were successfully prepared via the divergent growth strategy using a combination of thiol-ene “click” chemistry and traditional esterification reactions. The thiol-ene reactions were conducted under solvent-free, ambient conditions at room temperature by irradiating with UV light. The fourth-generation dendrimers were subsequently functionalized with carboxylic acid, pyrene, and Fmoc-protected cysteine moieties via thiol-ene reactions.
