Abstract

A small library of cyclic RGD pentapeptide mimics, including benzyl-substituted azabicycloalkane amino acids, was synthesized with the aim of developing active and selective integrin antagonists. In vitro binding assays established one particular compound with affinity for both the avb3 and the avb5 integrins. The synthesis in solution and the in vitro screening of these RGD derivatives, as well as the determination of the conformational properties of the integrin ligands by spectroscopic and computational methods are described.
