Cyclophilin A, a peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase that catalyzes the otherwise slow isomerization of Xaa-Pro imidic bond, specifically, binds the immunosuppressant cyclosporin A. Herein we repel evidence on binding of cyclolinopeptide A and its synthetic analogue, [Aib(5,6)-D-Ala(8)] cyclolinopeptide, to bovine cyclophilin A. Binding experiments were monitored by fluorescence, CD, and second-derivative spectroscopies, evidencing no remarkable rearrangement of protein structure organization. The possibility, that cyclolinopeptide A could act as a substitute of cyclosporin A in the immunosuppression modulation is also briefly discussed. (C) 1995 John Wiley and Sons, Inc.
