Abstract [en]

In an era where last-line antibiotics are failing, one of the powerful approaches to develop novel therapeutic agents is to turn back to nature in order to identify possible drug candidates. Among the potential candidates, antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) have garnered much attention as an antimicrobial. These are broad spectrum host defense molecules produced by all living organisms. LL-37 is such a multitask human defense peptide that mediates various host immune responses and also exerts antimicrobial activity. However, the direct use of this 37-amino acid long α-helical peptide is hampered by protease susceptibility, in particular for antimicrobial applications. A small 12-residues peptide, referred as KR-12, derived from LL-37, has been reported to have selective toxic effect on bacteria. 

Analogues of KR-12 were generated in the form of Alanine and Lysine scans to find out the positions important for improved activity and selectivity. Backbone-cyclised dimers based on KR-12 and KR-12 analogues, tethered by linkers of two to four amino acid residues, were synthesised to explore the concept of cyclisation, dimerisation and cross-linking as means to enhance peptide stability and activity. Antimicrobial activities of the linear peptides and cyclic dimers were assayed against human pathogens, in buffer and/or physiological conditions. Proteolytic stability, permeabilisation efficacy on microbial membranes and, their structures were also characterised.  

From Ala and Lys scans, it was possible to identify two key positions for the enhanced broad-spectrum antibacterial activity: replacement of Gln5 with Lys, and Asp9 with either Ala or Lys. In serum stability assay, KR-12 and analogues were found to be unstable. The backbone-cyclised KR-12 dimers showed improved antimicrobial activity and increased stability compared to monomeric KR-12. KR-12 monomers adopt a well-defined α-helical structure in membrane-mimicking environment, while cyclised dimers were unstructured in solution judged by NMR. The KR-12 (Q5K, D9A) cyclised dimers retained antimicrobial activity in physiological conditions. Circular dichroism showed that the cyclic dimer, cd4-PP, had 77% helical content when bound to lyso-phosphatidylglycerol micelles.

Moreover, the limits of cyanobactin-macrocyclase PatGmac were explored to cyclise peptides larger than their natural substrates, namely the PawS derived peptide Sunflower Trypsin Inhibitor-1 (SFTI-1) and the cyclotide kalata B1. PatGmac was used very efficiently to cyclise SFTI-1. In addition, semi-pure butelase 1, isolated from Clitoria ternatea seeds, was immobilised on NHS column. The immobilised column was then used to produce substrates ranging from 16 to 34 varying length.
