Restricting linear peptides to their bioactive conformation is an attractive way of improving their stability and activity. We used a cyclic peptide library with conformational diversity for selecting an active and stable peptide that mimics the structure and activity of the HIV-1 integrase (IN) binding loop from its cellular cofactor LEDGF/p75 (residues 361-370). All peptides in the library had the same primary sequence, and differed only in their conformation. Library screening revealed that… CONTINUE READING
