Water structure around dipeptides in aqueous solutions.

Abstract:

The bulk water structure around small peptide fragments--glycyl-L-alanine, glycyl-L-proline and L:-alanyl-L-proline-has been determined by a combination of neutron diffraction with isotopic substitution and empirical potential structural refinement techniques. The addition of each of the dipeptides to water gives rise to decreased water-water coordination in the surrounding water solvent. Additionally, both the Ow-Ow radial distribution functions and the water-water spatial density functions ...
