Structural study on silkworm eclosion hormone fragment (1-34) in solution by proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy.


Eclosion hormone (EH) is a neuropeptide hormone which controls the ecdysis behavior in insect. The three dimensional structure of the N-terminal fragment (1-34) of the eclosion hormone which was predicted to contain a compact region crucial for the EH activity was studied in 50% d3-trifluoroethanol(TFE)/50% H2O at pH 3 and 298 K by 1H NMR spectroscopy with… (More)
