We report our approach for the generation of a novel type of putative insecticides based on backbone cyclic peptidomimetic antagonists of insect neuropeptides using pheromone biosynthesis activating neuropeptide (PBAN) as a model. This approach, called the backbone cyclic neuropeptide based antagonist (BBC-NBA), includes the following steps: (i) elucidation of the active sequence of the chosen insect neuropeptide; (ii) disclosure of a lead antagonist based on the sequence found in step (i); (iii) design and synthesis of backbone cyclic peptide libraries (cycloscan) based on the sequence of the lead antagonist; and (iv) design and synthesis of a peptidomimetic prototype insecticide. The BBC-NBA approach was applied to PBAN and led to the discovery of a potent linear lead antagonist and a potent backbone cyclic antagonist devoid of agonistic activity which inhibited sex pheromone biosynthesis in Heliothis peltigera female moths.
