An nmr conformational analysis of a synthetic peptide Cn2(1-15)NH2-S-S-acetyl-Cn2(52-66)NH2 from the New World Centruroides noxius 2 (Cn2) scorpion toxin: comparison of the structure with those of the Centruroides scorpion toxins.

Abstract

The solution structure of a synthetic peptide, Cn2(1-15)NH2-S-S-acetyl-Cn2(52-66)NH2 from toxin 2 (Cn2) of the New World scorpion Centruroides noxius was determined using nmr and molecular dynamics calculations. The peptide has no significant secondary structure such as an alpha-helix or a beta-sheet, yet it has a fixed conformation for the first chain. The… (More)
