Synthesis and Structural Analysis of 6-Aminobicyclo[2.2.1]heptane-2- carboxylic Acid as a onformationally Constrained γ-Turn Mimic
Abstract:An efficient asymmetric synthesis of 6-aminobicyclo[2.2.1]heptane-2-carboxylic acid as a novel γ-turn mimic has been achieved. Structural analysis of the γ-amino acid derivative was carried out using 1H NMR spectroscopy and intramolecular hydrogen bonding between side chain amides confirmed the turn structure, which had been predicted by Ab initio computational study.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
