Dr Peter Byfield has made synthetic Gla peptides (specifically variants of 
Factor VIIa Gla domain - Biochemistry(1994) Martin et al. 32, 13949-13955.)
He got the Fmoc-Gla from Nova biochem (nottingham UK.) and used standard 
conditions on an ABI 431A for both HOBt/DCC and HOBt/HBTU activation chemistry.
He can be contacted at:

I don't have his lab phone number ( I used to work in the same group so never 
noted it)
