  • Publication number: 20200131669
    Abstract: The present inventors have found that when screening for cyclic peptide compounds that can specifically bind to a target molecule, the use of a library including cyclic peptide compounds having a long side chain in the cyclic portion can improve the hit rate for cyclic peptide compounds that can specifically bind to the target molecule. Meanwhile, the present inventors have found that tryptophan and tyrosine residues, which have conventionally been used in oral low molecular-weight pharmaceuticals and are amino acid residues having an indole skeleton or a hydroxyphenyl group, are not suitable for peptides intended to attain high membrane permeability.
