We report an inhibitor of the homodimeric protein-protein interaction of the BCL6 oncoprotein, identified from a genetically encoded SICLOPPS library of 3.2 million cyclic hexpeptides in combination with a bacterial reverse two-hybrid system. This cyclic peptide is shown to bind the BTB domain of BCL6, disrupts its homodimerization, and subsequent binding of the SMRT2 corepressor peptide.
