Protein-carbohydrate interactions play an important role in many biologically important processes. The recognition is mediated by a number of noncovalent interactions, including an interaction between the alpha-face of the carbohydrate and the aromatic side chain of the protein. To elucidate this interaction, it has been studied in the context of a(More)
Study of model beta-hairpin peptides allows for better understanding of the factors involved in the formation of beta-sheet secondary structure in proteins. It is known that turn sequence, sidechain-sidechain interactions, interstrand hydrogen bonding, and beta-sheet propensity of residues are all important for beta-hairpin stability in aqueous solution.(More)
