Abstract:

Spectral investigation including IR-characteristic bands assignment of the amino acids zwitterions L-Valine (LVal) and L-Proline (L-Pro) was carried out by linear-dichroic infrared (IR-LD) spectroscopy of oriented solid sample as a nematic liquid crystal suspension. The obtained experimental IR-LD results (transition moment directions) were compared with known crystal X-ray data for molecules orientation in the unit cells of the studied compounds, confirming the applicability of the used spectral method for structural determination. The influence of the protonation on the IR-spectroscopic patterns of the both amino acids is discussed.

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.
