Modified Cyclic Peptides and Therapeutic Use Thereof
Broad Case No.
List of inventors -
The present invention relates to cyclic peptide structures possessing the ability to incorporate and deliver peptides of sizable length (e.g., peptides of twenty amino acid residues or more in length), while retaining properties of cyclic peptides and/or cyclotides, including, e.g., protease resistance, heat resistance, resistance to low pH, etc. Methods for preparing cyclic peptide compositions, assessing the extent of cyclization within a peptide population, as well as methods for using cyclic peptide compositions are also provided.
