Further evidence for the absence of polyproline II stretch in the XAO peptide.


It has been suggested that the alanine-based peptide with sequence Ac-XX-[A](7)-OO-NH(2), termed XAO where X denotes diaminobutyric acid and O denotes ornithine, exists in a predominantly polyproline-helix (P(II)) conformation in aqueous solution. In our recent work, we demonstrated that this "polyproline conformation" should be regarded as a set of local… (More)
