Abstract Cyclic constraints are incorporated into an 11-residue analogue of the N-terminus of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) to investigate effects of structure on agonist activity. Cyclization through linking side chains of residues 2 and 5 or 5 and 9 produced agonists at nM concentrations in a cAMP assay. 2D NMR and CD spectra revealed an N-terminal β-turn and a C-terminal helix that differentially influenced affinity and agonist potency. These structures can inform development of small molecule agonists of the GLP-1 receptor to treat type 2 diabetes.
