Running rings around proteins: Protease-mediated biosynthesis of circular peptide and proteins Published abstract
Ribosomally synthesized cyclic peptides ranging in size from 10-80 amino acids have been discovered in bacteria, plants and animals over the last decade . 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  are the largest family of plant-derived circular proteins,...[Show more]
