Deletion sequences of salmon calcitonin that retain the essential biological and conformational features of the intact molecule.


Salmon calcitonin has an amino acid sequences that would allow it to form an amphipathic helix from approximately residue 9 to residue 22. We have synthesized a number of analogues of this peptide hormone with deletions in the carboxyl terminus of this putative amphipathic helix. These analogues include deletions of single amino acid residues at positions… (More)
