The conformation of the synthetic cyclic tetrapeptide cyclo(D-Phe-Pro-Sar-Gly) has been determined in solution using the nuclear magnetic resonance technique and in the crystal state by X-ray crystallography. Results showed that the peptide exhibited two different conformations in solution, conformer 1 having cis-trans-cis-trans peptide bonds and conformer 2 having trans-cis-trans-cis peptide bonds. No intramolecular hydrogen bonds were observed in the structures. The X-ray diffraction studies showed the crystals to be orthorhombic with space group P2(1)2(1)2(1) with unit-cell dimensions, a = 5.790, b = 10.344, c = 31.446 A, Z = 4, R = 0.104 for 2301 observed reflections. The crystal structure showed only one type of conformer having cis-trans-cis-trans peptide bonds similar to the conformer 1 in solution.
