Abstract

A series of longer analogues of the C-peptide of RNAse A has been synthesized with the aim of assessing the helix induction potential in water of alpha-methyl, alpha-amino acids at the N-terminus of the chain. The circular dichroism data indicate that one isovaline residue is effective in increasing the helix content of the 13-residue peptide by about 7%.
