Motility affected by cyclotides [...]Colgrave ML et al. (2008) Chembiochem 9:1939-1945
A range of natural variants were selected based on net charge and/or hydrophobicity and were tested alongside the prototypic cyclotide kB1 in larval development assays with H. contortus and T. colubriformis. [...]Colgrave ML et al. (2008) Chembiochem 9:1939-1945
A range of concentrations of kB1 was tested and scoring was conducted after 24, 48 and 72 h. After 24 h, motility scores of 0 were recorded at the two highest concentrations tested and the intermediate concentrations responded in a dose-dependent manner. After 48 h, there was a significant reduction in motility and, after 72 h, motility scores of 0 were recorded for all concentrations tested except the lowest two (<25 ”g/mL). It was also noted that while in the control assay tubes, a large proportion of laid eggs hatched to L1 larvae after 24 h, very few eggs hatched in the kB1 treated assay tubes above 400 ”g/mL and nearly all newly hatched larvae were dead above kB1 concentrations of 50 ”g/mL. [...]Colgrave ML et al. (2008) Biochemistry 47:5581-5589
The cyclotides caused a concentration-dependent response in the LDA with the two nematode species. [...]Colgrave ML et al. (2008) Biochemistry 47:5581-5589

Metal binding assay
Kalata B1 binds to Mn2+ in the presence of DPC micelles [...]Shenkarev ZO et al. (2008) FEBS J 273:2658-2672
In the presence of Mn2+ kalata B1, T16A and T27A showed specific broadening of a defined set of amide signals. There was almost complete broadening of the amide signals from C14, N15, and T16/A16, and significant broadening (i.e. ~70% attenuation) of loop 1 residues. By contrast, E7A showed significantly less broadening. [...]Simonsen SM et al. (2008) J Biol Chem 283:9805-9813
Suggests that kalata B1 may contain a metal binding site. [...]Skjeldal L et al. (2002) Arch Biochem Biophys 399:142-8
Substitution of certain residues of kalata B1 to alanine result in loss of hemolytic activity. Residues in loops 1 and 3 along with a few other isolated residues strongly affect activity. [...]Simonsen SM et al. (2008) J Biol Chem 283:9805-9813
Cycloviolacins Y4 and Y5 are the most hemolytic of the new cyclotides, both being more potent than the prototypic cyclotide kalata B1. By contrast, cycloviolacin Y1 is substantially less active than all of the other cyclotides tested. [...]Wang CK et al. (2007) J Nat Prod 71:47-52

Tricyclon A has minimal haemolytic activity [...]Mulvenna JP et al. (2005) Structure (Camb) 13:691-701
At a concentration of 25 ÂșM, a more than 6-fold difference exists between the most hemolyticcyclotide, cycloviolacin O24 (~75% hemolysis), and the least hemolytic cyclotide cycloviolacin O14 (~11% hemolysis). The sensitivity of hemolytic activity to variations in the peptide sequence is evident when comparing cycloviolacin O2 and O13. Here, the only sequence deviation is a single residue substitution of a serine in loop 3 of O2 (HD50 ~36 ÂșM) to an alanine in the homologous position in O13 (HD50 ~11 ÂșM). The loss of this single hydroxy group changes the HD50 more than three-fold. [...]Ireland DC et al. (2006) Biochem J. 400:1-12
