Abstract : Much insight has been obtained on Ca(2+)-binding proteins from studies on cyclic peptides as well as on relatively large linear peptides with sequences resembling the ion-binding regions of these proteins. With the aim of delineating the minimal conformational features required for Ca(2+) binding, we synthesized several short linear peptides and examined their interaction with Ca+ by CD, NMR and molecular modeling methods.
