[Stability of the alpha-helix structure of oligopeptides].


The problem of stabilization of oligopeptide alpha-helix conformation is discussed. The stabilizing role of intramolecular H-bonds and coulombic interactions for single molecules was shown. The influence of media results in the competition for formation of inter and intramolecular H-bonds and for coulombic interactions. High competitive media, eg. water… (More)
