Peptide and Nonpeptide Macrocycles as Promising Chemotypes for Inhibiting Protein-Protein Interactions

There is a wealth of compelling protein-protein interaction, PPI, targets that cannot readily be inhibited using conventional druglike small molecules. Consequently, there is strong interest in noncanonical drug chemotypes as inhibitors of PPIs including, for example, peptide and nonpeptide macrocycles, peptide foldamers, and covalent inhibitors.
