Determination of conformational preferences of dipeptides using vibrational spectroscopy.


The NMR coupling constants ((3)J(H(N), H(alpha))) of dipeptides indicate that the backbone conformational preferences vary strikingly among dipeptides. These preferences are similar to those of residues in small peptides, denatured proteins, and the coil regions of native proteins. Detailed characterization of the conformational preferences of dipeptides is… (More)
