We have used proton magnetic relaxation dispersion (MRD) to study the self-association of bovine beta-lactoglobulin variant A (BLG-A) as a function of temperature at pH 4.7 (dimer-octamer equilibrium) and as a function of NaCl concentration at pH 2.5 (monomer-dimer equilibrium). The MRD method identifies coexisting oligomers from their rotational(More)
The conformational space of the tetrapeptide Ac-Lys-Pro-Gly-Ile-NMA from the beta-bend present in the third loop of short-chain snake venom neurotoxins was investigated with the aid of energy calculations, resulting in the identification of an ensemble of beta-turn conformations. These results were compared with the experimentally determined conformations,(More)
The conformational space of the tetrapeptide Ac-Lys-Gln-Gly-Ile-NMA from the beta-bend in the third loop of a short-chain snake venom neurotoxin was investigated with the aid of energy calculations. It was shown that this peptide has a preference for an alpha-helical conformation. This result was compared with the experimentally determined conformations, as(More)
The conformational space of six tetrapeptides from the beta-bends in the third loop of short-chain snake venom neurotoxins was investigated with the aid of energy calculations. It was shown that these peptides can be divided into two groups: those with a specific preference for an alpha-helix and those that exist as an ensemble of beta-turn conformations.
