Highly Conformationally Restricted Cyclopropane Tethers with Three-Dimensional Structural Diversity Drastically Enhance the Cell Permeability of Cyclic Peptides



Invited for the cover of this issue is the group of Kouhei Matsui and Satoshi Shuto at Shionogi & Co.,Ltd. and at Hokkaido University. The image depicts the cyclopropane tethers with three-dimensional structural diversity that are able to remarkably change the conformation and physicochemical properties of cyclic peptides due to the characteristic steric feature of cyclopropane.
