Abstract

Summary

The probable conformations of two cyclic enkephalin analogs, DNS-cyclo[D-Dab-Gly-Trp-Leu] (I) and DNS-cyclo[D-Dab-Gly-Trp-D-Leu] (II) (DNS = dansyl), were determined by combining the results of NOE, vicinal coupling constant and fluorescence energy transfer measurements with theoretical calculations. The common feature of the conformations for both peptides is the presence of a β-turn at residues 2 and 3.
