Abstract

The crystal structure of a synthetic, terminally blocked tetrapeptide $t-Boc-\beta-Ala-L-Leu-Aib-L-Val-OMe$ reveals that the peptide adopts an overall extended backbone conformation. It self-assembles in the solid state to form an intermolecularly hydrogen-bonded \beta-sheet-like structure mediated by water molecules.
