Design, Synthesis, and Application of a Trifluoromethylated Phenylalanine Analogue as a Label to Study Peptides by Solid-State 19F NMR Spectroscopy
Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. , 2013, 52 (25), 6504-6507
Designer label: A novel α-amino acid was designed as a conformationally restricted analogue of phenylalanine. It was synthesized and incorporated into the representative membrane-active peptide Magainin 2, to demonstrate its suitablility for structure analysis in oriented membranes by solid-state 19F NMR spectroscopy.
