Conformationally Rigid Trifluoromethyl-Substituted α-Amino Acid Designed for Peptide Structure Analysis by Solid-State 19F NMR Spectroscopy
Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. , 2006, 45 (34), 5659-5661
The fluorinated amino acid l-CF3-Bpg (see picture), which was specifically designed as a 19F NMR label for structure analysis of membrane-bound peptides, does not display the drawbacks of previously used labels. The amino acid can be readily incorporated into peptides and is particularly suitable as a substitute for Leu, Ile, and Met.
