Conformation for a beta-cyclodextrin monosubstituted with a cyclic dipeptide.

The structural characterization of a beta-cyclodextrin monosubstituted with the peptide cyclo(L-His-L-Leu) is reported. This work provides an x-ray example of a covalently bound group that folds in such a way that the terminal apolar side chain is retained in the hydrophobic interior of the cone-shaped cyclodextrin cavity. 6-Deoxy-6-cyclo(L-histidyl-L… CONTINUE READING
