Abstract

Efficient downsizing of peptides: By combination of two orthogonal "conformation-based" and "sequence-based" libraries, the cyclic pentapeptide cyclo-(-L-Nal1-Gly2-D-Tyr3-L-Arg4-L-Arg5-) (Nal = L-3-(2-naphthyl)alanine; see overlay of the five lowest energy structures), which exhibited strong CXCR4 antagonistm (IC50 = 4 nM) comparable to that of a 14-residue lead compound, T140, was discovered.
