Macrocyclization of synthetic peptides by thioesterase (TE) domains excised from nonribosomal peptide synthetases (NRPS) has been limited to peptides that contain TE-specific recognition elements. To alter substrate specificity of these enzymes by evolution efforts, macrocyclization has to be detected under high-throughput conditions. Here we describe a method to selectively detect cyclic peptides...
