The hydrogen-bonding ability of the amino acid glutamine revealed by neutron diffraction experiments.


Hydrogen bonding between glutamine residues has been identified as playing an important role in the intermolecular association and aggregation of proteins. To establish the molecular mechanisms of glutamine interactions, neutron diffraction coupled with hydrogen/deuterium isotopic substitution in combination with computational modeling has been used to… (More)
