|Description||The conformation of substance P (free acid) (SPOH) has been investigated in dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), water and dipalmitoylphosphotidylcholine (DPPC) bilayers by two-dimensional NMR and restraint molecular dynamics simulations. The observed NOE patterns for substance P (free acid) in these media are very much different from each other. The conformation of substance P (free acid) in DPPC bilayers is characterized by gamma-bends at Pro4,Gln6and Phe7, which are stabilized by hydrogen bonding between Lys3CO-->Gln5NH, Gln5CO-->Phe7NH and Gln6CO-->Phe8NH, respectively. The absence of biological activity in SPOH has been attributed to the absence of any helix like structure at the central residues and absence of any interresidue interaction with C-terminal OH group, in DPPC bilayers, a feature shown to be an important prerequisite for SP and SP agonists to bind to the NKI tachykinin receptor.|
