The Peptide Bond Has a Partial Double Bond Character peptide bond is planar and rigid peptide bond resonance energy (derives from partial electron sharing between carbonyl-oxygen and amide-nitrogen) C N bond is 0.14 Å shorter than normal 4 MCDB310 Chapter 4: Protein Structure
Background image of page 4
Trans Configuration of Peptide Bonds R1 R2 Partial double bond character restricts free rotation around the peptide bond ( cis/transconfiguration) 5 MCDB310 Chapter 4: Protein Structure Due to steric clashes of side-chains, trans is favored

2D-Ramachandran Plot (L-Ala peptide) Not all / -Combinations are Allowed ~ 3/4 of possible combinations are excluded because of steric hindrances (e.g. interatomic distances smaller than van der Waals radii) (phi) [degree] (psi) [degree] no steric overlap: allowed conformations steric overlap: not allowed 9 MCDB310 Chapter 4: Protein Structure
