Nomenclature of Cyclic Peptides
These recommendations extend rule 3AA-19.5 of the Nomenclature and Symbolism for Amino Acids and Peptides (Recommendations 1983) to cover all classes of cyclic peptides. They include rings generated from an acyclic peptide by formation of a peptide or ester bond, by a disulfide link, or by a new carbon-carbon, carbon-nitrogen, nitrogen-oxygen, or carbon-sulfur bond (not esters or amides). The inclusion of modified standard amino acids or amino acids not related to standard amino acids is considered. Any stereochemistry generated by ring formation is indicated using standard organic conventions.
