Rathore, Ravindranath S (2004) Study on \beta-sheet packing, stabilized by aromatic interactions in a tri-peptide crystal. In: Zeitschrift fuer Kristallographie, 219 (9). pp. 567-572.Full text not available from this repository.
The role of unconventional arom. interactions in the \beta -sheet packing, inside the crystal, was highlighted. Crystal structure of terminally blocked tri-peptide, Z-L-Ala-L-Ala-L-Leu-pNA was detd. There are four different conformers of tri-peptide inside the unit-cell, in space group P1. All the four independent mols. are described by semi-extended backbone conformations which form an anti-parallel \beta-sheet. The inter \beta-sheet packing is predominantly stabilized by C-H...\pi and \pi...\pi interactions. In \pi...\pi interactions, the center-to-center distance between arom. rings varies from 3.8 \AA to 4.6 \AA. while the closest distance of approach ranges from 3.4 \AA to 3.8 \AA. The assocns. of arom.-arom. rings are described by either face-to-face or inclined arrangements
