The solution structure of a synthetic ET(B) selective agonist, ET-1[Cys(Acm)(1,15), Ala3, Leu7, dAsp8, Aib11] has been solved by 1H NMR and molecular modelling studies. Such solution structures of linear modified peptides in aqueous methanol are being used in an ongoing program of research designed to assist in an understanding of the basic structural requirements for the biological activity of vasoconstrictors. The resulting structure of this peptide is characterised by an alpha-helical… CONTINUE READING
