Abstract

The ability of microbial transglutaminase to ligate two polypeptides through glutamine and lysine residues was exploited to generate cyclic peptides. Peptides with an N-terminal short glutamine-donor sequence (Ala-Leu-Gln), a variable polypeptide linker and a C-terminal lysine residue could efficiently be cyclised by the enzyme.
