Synthetic and recombinant peptide models of the central repetitive domain of the high molecular weight subunits of wheat glutenin with different numbers of the consensus repeat motifs PGQGQQ + GYYPTSLQQ (21, 45, 110, and 203 residues long) and a recombinant 58,000-Da relative molecular mass (M(r) 58,000) repetitive peptide from a single subunit (1Dx5) are studied using Fourier transform IR spectroscopy. The spectra of the dry peptides are very similar; at low water contents (<76% relative… CONTINUE READING
