Circular dichroism (CD) spectra are reported for two groups of cyclic hexapeptides having beta turns whose geometry can be firmly established by X-ray crystallography and by NMR spectroscopy. One series contains the sequence L-Pro-D-Phe in the geometry of the classical type II beta turn, while the second group has the sequence D-Phe-L-Pro in the closely related geometry of the gramicidin S turn. CD data on the hydrogenated peptides show that in neither series do Cotton effects due to the… CONTINUE READING
