Amide I infrared (IR) spectral features are studied, by using the density functional theoretical method, for two untypical (but possibly rather prevalent) structures inspired from those recently suggested for amyloids: a structure consisting of loop regions in the (alpha L, alpha R) conformation stacked to form an alpha-sheet, and a structure involving some main-chain peptide groups (of any residues) and some side-chain amide groups of glutamine and asparagine residues closely located with each… CONTINUE READING
