Thiopeptide antibiotics are a class of natural products with polythiophene (oxazol) polypeptides, which are rich in sulfur and highly modified. They are produced by secondary metabolism of microorganisms and have good biological activities. Developing thiopeptides into clinic is currently a challenge partly due to their low aqueous solubility and associated poor bioavailability. On the basis of understanding the mechanism of their biosynthesis, the method of obtaining thiopeptide analogues via reasonable bioengineering has become the research focus of biologists. In this paper, the advances in structural modifications of bicyclic thiopeptides by taking thiostrepton and nosiheptide as representatives are reviewed.

Key words: biosynthesis, thiostrepton, nosiheptide, structural modifications
