Here we describe the synthesis of a series of α,β-phosphopeptides, based on the phosphoepitope site on YAP1 (yes-associated protein 1), and the biochemical, biophysical and structural characterization of their binding to 14-3-3 proteins. The impact of systematic mono- and di-substitution of α → β3 amino acid residues around the phosphoserine residue are discussed. Our results confirm the important role played by the +2 proline residue in the thermodynamics and structure of the phosphoepitope/14-3-3 interaction.
