Running rings around proteins: Protease-mediated biosynthesis of circular peptide and proteins Published abstract

Craik, David J; Colgrave, Michelle L; Mylne, J; Conlan, Brendon; Anderson , Marilyn

Description

Ribosomally synthesized cyclic peptides ranging in size from 10-80 amino acids have been discovered in bacteria, plants and animals over the last decade [1]. Their head-totail cyclic peptide backbone, which means they are devoid of N- or C-termini, makes them resistant to exoprotease digestion and they are thus exceptionally stable. They have a wide range of biological activities but most are involved in host-defense. The cyclotides [2] are the largest family of plant-derived circular proteins,...[Show more]
