Structural and IR-Spectroscopic Elucidation of Dipeptide L-Threonyl-LMethionine in Solid State
Abstract:Dipeptide L-threonyl-L-methionine (Thr-Met) is characterized structurally by means of a solid-state linear polarized IR- spectroscopy (IR-LD) of oriented samples as a colloidal suspension in nematic liquid crystal and quantum chemical ab initio calculations. Vibrational analysis supports the experimental data as well. The role of intermolecular hydrogen bonding on conformational behavior and spectroscopic properties of the compound, studied in solid state is determined.

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.
