A natural antibacterial cyclic peptide thermoactinoamide A was synthesized by solid-liquid phase two-step method. First, based on fluorenylmethoxycarbonyl(Fmoc) solid phase synthesis, the linear peptide was obtained in 84% yield by optimizing the addition of N,N'-diisopropylethylamine(DIPEA). Then the linear peptide was converted to thermoactinoamide A in 51% yield(43% yield total) through optimizing the cyclization conditions. Antibacterial activity test results show that minimum inhibitory concentration of cyclic thermoactinoamide A for Staphylococcus aureus is 32 μg/mL. In summary, an effectively synthetic strategy was developed for further applications of cyclic peptide thermoactinoamide A on analyzing the structure-activity relationship and improving the bioactivity.
