THERMODYNAMIC PARAMETERS OF HELIX-COIL TRANSITIONS IN POLYPEPTIDE CHAINS 0. B. PTIThYN Institute of Protein Research, Academy of Sciences of the USSR, Poustchino, Moscow Region, USSR ABSTRACT The aim of this paper is to outline new possibilities of more detailed thermo-dynamic analysis of helix coil transition parameters, particularly with respect.   The absorption and emission spectra of six purine derivatives: adenine (I), N(9)-hydroxyethyladenine (II), N(6)-acetyladenine (III), N(6)-isobutyryladenine (IV), guanine (V), and N(2),N(9)-diacetylguanine (VI) have been investigated. The effects of solvent and pH on the positions of λ max (absorption) and λ max (emission) of these compounds were determined. Correlations between the.

Keywords: Solvent effects, Fluorescence, Dipole moments, Erbium complexes, azo-dyes, azo-methin. 1. Introduction. Organic molecules represent a great potential for applications in electro-optic devices and all optical devices. Incorporation of metals into organic NLO (Non-Linear Optical) system gives a. The drastic decrease in size of a polymer molecule when immersed in a bad solvent, the so called coil to globule transition, is a well-known phenomenon in polymer physics. This effect can be observed in a given solvent by changing the temperature, thus crossing different regions in the phase diagram. A change in the scaling behaviour is.

In order to confirm the effect of the helix-coil transition on the association behavior, both-ends hydrophobically-modified water-soluble polymer without any conformational transition is considered as a suitable control sample. Here, we comment on recent Dai et al.'s study on aggregation behavior of HEUR in water/EG mixed by: CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): We discuss the effects of the solvent composition on the helix-coil transition of a polypeptide chain.

We use a simple model to demonstrate that improving the hydrogen-bonding ability of the solvent can make the transition less cooperative, without affecting the transition temperature.

For a wide variety of synthetic and natural peptides, including both single helices and coiled coils, it is shown that [θ λi] is also essentially independent of substance and of whether the transition is induced by temperature, ionic strength, pH, chain length changes, amino acid substitution, or solvent perturbation.

the solvent-free GMPC model of the helix-coil transition and briefly describe the methods we apply. Then, to account for both mechanisms of solvent action we complement the basic, in vacuo Hamiltonian[13,14] these terms has been treated separately before [20,21], but.

the helix-coil transition is a conformational diffusion search process (Huang et al., ). With this ongoing debate and the small molecular size of helical polypeptides relative to more complex protein structures, a significant amount of interest in helix-coil processes has been generated in the simulation community within the last decade.

Solvent effects on excited state relaxation phenomena formation, - causing, however, an increase in the non-radiative decay efficiency -was observed for aniline solutions (ref.

15). In this case excited state association kinetics were observed, supporting the conclusion, that excited complexe formation (solute-solwt# uciplexes) are responsible for the higher deactivation rate.

Effects of pressure and temperature on the helix‐coil transition of an alanine‐based peptide (Ac‐ AA(AAKAA) 3 AAY‐NH 2) have been investigated using CD and FTIR the correlation between CD and FTIR data, we showed that the change in infrared intensity of the amide I′ band at cm −1 is almost identical to the change in the helical content calculated from the CD.

A variety of environmental factors affect fluorescence emission, including interactions between the fluorophore and surrounding solvent molecules (dictated by solvent polarity), other dissolved inorganic and organic compounds, temperature, pH, and the localized concentration of the fluorescent.

In this paper we develop a motional model of isolated transmembrane segment 1–36 bacteriorhodopsin (BR) in a weakly polar organic mixture. The model is based on the statistical mechanics theory [Lifson, S. and Roig, A. () J. Chem. Phys., 34, –] and represents the dynamics of 1–36BR as an interconversion between a limited number of intermediates of α-helix – random coil.

helix-coil transition occurs at the point where the ener-getic gain is compensated by the entropic loss, i.e., s ¼ expð H=TÞ=expð SÞ 1, resulting in the melting tem-perature T m H= iS.

The interval of transition can be estimated as T ffiffiffiffi p. Within the Zimm-Bragg formula-tion, the solvent effects that alter the parameter s would.

An eighth free parameter, the enthalpy of bond formation to solvent (which replaces a intramolecular hydrogen bond), was initially allowed to vary with little effect, thus it has been fixed to a previously used value (see the u parameter in Table 3).

In general, the solvent H-bond energy is a nontransferable solvent-dependent parameter. 2. SOLVENT EXTRACTION Although solvent extraction as a method of separation has long been known to the chemists, only in recent years it has achieved recognition among analysts as a powerful separation technique.

Liquid-liquid extraction, mostly used in analysis, is a technique in. Similarly, Margulis et al. 19 observed a somewhat longer helix–coil transition time, on the order of 1 ns, in their MD simulations in which they used α-carbon dihedral angles to monitor the helix–coil transition.

These results are consistent with our speculation that for very short peptides (for example, less than ~15 residues) there is an.The ensemble folding of two residue α-helical peptides has been studied using all-atom simulations under several variants of the AMBER potential in explicit solvent using a global distributed computing network.

Our extensive sampling, orders of magnitude greater than the experimental folding time, results in complete convergence to ensemble equilibrium.

This allows for a quantitative.
