Formatted abstract
Cyclotides have a diverse range of biological activities that have both pharmaceutical and agricultural applications. Here we examine the range of activities seen in natural cyclotides and describe the structure–activity relationship (SAR) studies that have helped to understand the mechanisms associated with these activities. These SAR studies have also led to the development of “designer” cyclotides with an introduced range of pharmaceutical bioactivities. Overall, cyclotides continue to be of interest for their potential in drug design and crop protection.
