Polypeptides containing the -ala-gly- sequence were synthesized by the polymerization of the p-nitrophenyl and 2,4,6-trichlorophenyl esters of ala-gly and gly-ala. The obtained polypeptides have aβ-structure, which is related to the structure of silk fibroin.
The polypeptide obtained using the 2,4,6-trichlorophenyl esters has the best properties.
