ABSTRACT We replaced the amino terminal Pro residue of the Plk1 polo-box-domain-binding pentapeptide (PLHSpT) with a library of N-alkyl-Gly "peptoids", and identified long-chain tethered phenyl moieties giving greater than two-orders-of-magnitude affinity enhancement. Further simplification by replacing the peptoid residue with appropriate amides gave low-nanomolar affinity N-acylated tetrapeptides. Binding of the N-terminal long-chain phenyl extension was demonstrated by X-ray co-crystal data.
