Thumbnail image of graphical abstract The rearrangement of asparagine to isoaspartate (isoD) is responsible for the deactivation of many functional proteins. However, the isoDGR motif, which is optimally presented as a conformationally controlled cyclic pentapeptide, binds selectively to a5ß1 integrin (see the docking model) with an affinity comparable to that of the peptidic antitumor agent Cilengitide
