Pivaloyl-D-prolyl-L-prolyl-L-analyl-N-methylam~de (I), C1UH32N40c4r,y stallizes in the orthorhombic space group P21212,w ith four molecules in a unit cell of dimensions a = 9.982 (l),b = 10.183 (3), c = 20.746 (2)A . The structure has been refined to R 0.048 for 1 745 observed reflections. All the peptide bonds in the molecule are trans and both the prolyl residues are in the CY-exo-conformation. The molecule assumes a highly folded conformation in which a Type II' DL bend is followed by a Type I LL bend, both stabilised by intramolecular 4 + 1 hydrogen bonds. This conformation, which has been observed for the first time, is of interest in relation to the structure of gramicidin S.
