Conformational flexibility of angiotensin II. A carbon-13 spin-lattice relaxation study

R DeslauriersI C Smith


Carbon-13 spin-lattice relaxation times (T1) have been determined for the carbon in the octapeptide hormone [5-isoleucine]-angiotensin II in aqueous solution. Two possible models for molecular motion are considered: isotropic overall motion of the hormone with internal motion of some residues and anisotropic overall molecular motion. The data are interpreted in detail using the former model. The alpha carbons of the peptide backbone are all equally restricted in their motion. The correlation time for overall molecular reorientation, calculated from an everage T1 value of 95 msec for the alpha carbons in the peptide backbone, is ca. 5 times 10-10 sec. The carbons in the side chains are more mobile than those in the peptide backbone, with the exception of the side chain of the Tyr residue which does not undergo rapid segmental motion. We propose that [5-isoleucine]-angiotensin II has a restricted backbone conformation and that the alpha carbons of the N- and C-terminal residues are constrained to nearly the same extent as the remaining alpha carbons in the peptide backbone. Chemical shift data indicate that the Pro residue adopts the trans conformation about the His-Pro bond and that the imidazole ring of His has a strong prefere...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
