Abstract: Kalata B1 is a plant protein with remarkable thermal, chemical and enzymatic stability. Its potential applications could be centered on the possibility of using its cyclic structure and cystine knot motif as a scaffold for the design of stable pharmaceuticals. To discover potent dengue NS2B-NS3 protease inhibitors, we have prepared various kalata B1 analogues by varying the amino acid sequence. Mass spectrometric and biochemical investigations of these analogues revealed a cyclopeptide whose two fully oxidized forms are substrate-competitive inhibitors of the dengue viral NS2B-NS3 protease. Both oxidized forms showed potent inhibition with Ki of 1.39 ± 0.35 and 3.03 ± 0.75 μM, respectively. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
