Abstract: Herein we briefly introduced definition, structural characteristic, history, distribution, extraction and isolation, synthesis and biosynthesis, bioactivity and biofunction of cyclotides . Then we gave cycloviolacin O2 as an example , one of six cyclotides isolated from Viola labridorica, to introduce structural determination methods for cyclotides with reductionenzyme digestion-mass spectra and two-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance spectra.

Key words: Viola labridorica
