Abstract

1H NMR studies quantify the abilities of achiral amino acids to communicate a left-handed screw-sense preference from one helical Aib 4 domain to another: certain quaternary amino acids (e.g. Ac 6c) act as effective conductors of conformational preference while others (e.g. diphenylglycine) acts as insulators.
