Abstract

Cyclic peptides are a class of compounds with high therapeutic potential. They possess very promising bioactivities, such as antitumor and antiviral (including anti-HIV) activity. However, effective production of these compounds by synthetic approaches have not been achieved to date, which motivates the study of biological methods of macrocyclization of peptides.
