Some Small Peptides



In order to model biological systems successfully, it is necessary to use an accurate model for calculating the energetics of peptide conformations both in gas phase and in solutions. Knowledge of peptide conformation can provide information about peptide—receptor binding, which, as shown in some of the previous chapters, is the basis of some crucial biological processes. In addition, this knowledge can provide a basis for rational drug design.
