Human little gastrin is a 17 amino acid peptide that adopts a random conformation in water and an ordered structure in sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) micelles as well as in trifluoroethanol (TFE). The circular dichroism spectra in these two media have the same shape, indicative of a similar preferred conformation [Mammi, S., Mammi, N. J., Foffani, M. T., Peggion, E., Moroder, L., & Wunsch, E.

Two-dimensional correlation techniques form the basis for the assignment. The conformational analysis utilizes NOE's, NH to CaH coupling constants, and the temperature coefficients of the amide chemical shifts. The NMR data indicate a helical structure in the N-terminal portion of the peptide. These results are compared with the conformation that we recently proposed for a minigastrin analogue (fragment 5-17 of [Ahx15]little gastrin) in TFE.

Abstract

Human little gastrin is a 17 amino acid peptide that adopts a random conformation in water and an ordered structure in sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) micelles as well as in trifluoroethanol (TFE). The circular dichroism spectra in these two media have the same shape, indicative of a similar preferred conformation [Mammi, S., Mammi, N. J., Foffani, M. T., Peggion, E., Moroder, L., & Wunsch, E. (1987) Biopolymers 26, S1-S10]. We describe here the assignment of the proton NMR resonances and the conformational analysis of [Ahx15]little gastrin in SDS micelles. Two-dimensional correlation techniques form the basis for the assignment. The conformational analysis utilizes NOE's, NH to CaH coupling constants, and the temperature coefficients of the amide chemical shifts. The NMR data indicate a helical structure in the N-terminal portion of the peptide. These results are compared with the conformation that we recently proposed for a minigastrin analogue (fragment 5-17 of [Ahx15]little gastrin) in TFE.
