I'm asked to tell which of the following peptide segments is most likely to be part of a stable Alpha Helix at physiological pH? Only 1 can be chosen

1. gly-gly-gly-ala-gly
2. gly-arg-lys-his-gly
3. pro-leu-thr-pro-trp
4. lys-lys-ala-arg-ser
5. glu-leu-ala-lys-phe
6. glu-glu-glu-glu-glu
7. tyr-trp-phe-val-lie

    tyr-trp-phe-val-lie

  • Chemistry - ,

    Tyr-Trp-Phe-Val-iLe is wrong because of the big bulky tyr,trp, and phe.

    Anything with Gly is wrong because gly is too flexible which causes it to form other helicies.
