Abstract

An 18-amino acid polypeptide systemin was synthesized by the solid-phase method and its conformation was studied by circular dichroism spectroscopy. The peptide in solution is a mixture of random coil structure with β-sheet and β-turn motifs as has been previously suggested with NMR spectra. Free zone capillary electrophoresis analysis proved purity and chemical stability of systemin at different pH. <p>
