Sandwiching Interaction of Peptides with a Porphyrin
Designed oligopeptides were able to bind a porphyrin, 5,10,15,20-tetrakis (N-methylpyridinium-4-yl)-21H,23H-porphine; H<SUB>2</SUB>TMpyP with sandwiching interaction, and in this binding a position of aromatic residues and secondary structures of the peptides played an important role. The importance of the sandwiching interaction of the peptides was also indicated in the selection (combinatorial chemistry) of peptides binding H<SUB>2</SUB>TMpyP from a large number of peptide sequences.
