COMPOSICIÓN QUÍMICA=Chemical composition: Hypa A, a novel macrocyclic polypeptide containing 30 amino acid residues, has been isolated from the n-butanol extract of the Argentine plant Hybanthus parviflorus. The sequence, cyclo-(SCVYIPCTITALLGCSCKNKVCYNGIPCAE), was determined by automated Edman degradation, quantitative amino acid analysis and nanospray MS/MS2. Three intramolecular disulfide bridges stabilize the cyclic peptide backbone of hypa A. Using these structural features to classify the peptide as a cyclotide, we extended the distribution of that substance class to a new genus, and now propose a uniform nomenclature for cyclotides. © 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.
