Loloatin C is a cyclic cationic antimicrobial peptide which is active against Gram positive as well as certain Gram negative bacteria. Unfortunately, it is equally potent against human erythrocytes. To probe the structure-activity relationship of this promising antibiotic peptide, amino acid substitution and/or incorporation of a constraint sugar amino acid dipeptide isoster has been applied. Six new derivatives have been synthesized using SPPS and their solution structure investigated using NMR studies. Finally, the antimicrobial and the hemolytic activities have been determined. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
