Abstract

The finding that peptides containing -amino acid residues give rise to folding patterns hitherto unobserved in -amino acid peptides[1] has stimulated considerable interest in the conformational properties of peptides built from , , and residues,[2] as the introduction of additional methylene (CH2) units into peptide chains provides further degrees of conformational freedom. Studies of the influence of introducing-amino acids into regular polypeptide structures derived from residues have demonstrated that extra methylene groups can be inserted into helical backbones and into the strand and turn segments of hairpins.[3] In regard to the influence of CH2 group insertion into the i2 position of isolated peptide turns, we are investigating the conformational properties of a series of model sequences Piv-Pro-Xxx- NHMe (defined in Scheme 1 and reference [4]).
