The conformation of paliurine B, a 13-membered cyclopeptide alkaloid isolated from Paliurus ramosissimus, has been determined from 2D NMR and distance geometry, followed by the restrained energy minimization calculation. The conformation of the 13-membered ring is well-defined but that of the acyclic dipeptide tail region is relatively disordered. In addition, the cavity in the 13-membered ring is just large enough to insert a magnesium ion but is a little small for calcium or sodium ions. 


Determination of the complete three-dimensional structure of the alpha-amylase inhibitor tendamistat in aqueous solution by nuclear magnetic resonance and distance geometry.
The complete three-dimensional structure of the alpha-amylase inhibitor Tendamistat in aqueous solution was determined by 1H nuclear magnetic resonance and distance geometry calculations using the program DISMAN, and a detailed analysis is presented of correlations between the experimental input data and the precision of the structure determination.
