Conformational investigation of antibiotic proximicin by X-ray structure analysis and quantum studies suggest a stretched conformation of this type of γ-peptide.

Abstract : The proximicins A-C are naturally occurring cytotoxic γ-peptides that contain the unique 4-amino-furan-carboxylic acid. In contrast to the structurally related cytotoxic natural DNA binder netropsin and distamycin, both exhibiting as core building block N-methyl-4-amino-pyrrol-carboxylic acid, no DNA binding was observed for the procimicins. X-ray analysis of crystals of a protected 4-amino-furan-2-carboxylic acid dipeptide revealed a stretched conformation. In contrast, for netropsin and distamycin, sickle-shaped crystal conformations were observed. DFT-calculations elegantly confirm these conformational arrangements. The most stable conformers of the proximicins are linear whereas sickle-shaped conformations are less stable, having higher Gibbs energies. For netropsin, distamycin and the netropsin-proximicin-hybrid a sickle shaped conformation appears energetically favored. The reported results are consistent with the observations that the proximicins A-C do not bind to the DNA and have a different mode of action concerning their cytotoxic activity with respect to netropsin and distamycin.
