Abstract: Constrained peptides are an attractive class as affinity regents or drug leads owing to their exhibit excellent binding properties. Many kinds of constrained peptides, such as cyclic peptides, have been found in nature or designed artificially by directed evolution. However, confirming binding properties of the constrained peptides can generally be troublesome because the synthesis of constrained peptides is more complicated in comparison with linear peptides. In this paper, we showed that biotinylated constrained peptides containing a disulfide bridge or a chemical cross-linking could be synthesized using a cell-free translation system and analyzed with a puromycin-linker in the manner of pull-down assay method.
