Summary of "Chiral PdL Nanocube Pairs: Recognition of Chiral Amino Acids via Electrochemistry."

The self-assembly of PdX (X = ClO and PF) with -symmetric - and -L [L = (2,2',2″)- and (2,2',2″)-[benzenetricarbonyltris(azanediyl)]tris(3-phenylpropane-2,1-diyl)triisonicotinate] produces the chiral nanocube pair [Pd(-L)](X) and [Pd(-L)](X) (X = ClO and PF, respectively) with an inner cavity of 12.3 × 12.3 × 12.3 Å. These chiral nanocubes are effective for the enantiorecognition of various chiral amino acids via the square-wave-voltammetry technique. In the present study, the site of enantiorecognition was confirmed by density functional theory calculated interactions between each nanocube and the chiral amino acids, and the calculated interactions were coincident with the shifts of the electrochemical oxidation potentials.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Enzymes that catalyze either the racemization or epimerization of chiral centers within amino acids or derivatives. EC 5.1.1.

Polymers of N-SUBSTITUTED GLYCINES containing chiral centers at the a-position of their side chains. These oligomers lack HYDROGEN BONDING donors, preventing formation of the usual intrachain hydrogen bonds but can form helices driven by the steric influence of chiral side chains.

Enzymes that catalyze the epimerization of chiral centers within carbohydrates or their derivatives. EC 5.1.3.

Amino acids and chains of amino acids connected by peptide linkages.

Members of the class of compounds composed of AMINO ACIDS joined together by peptide bonds between adjacent amino acids into linear, branched or cyclical structures. OLIGOPEPTIDES are composed of approximately 2-12 amino acids. Polypeptides are composed of approximately 13 or more amino acids. PROTEINS are linear polypeptides that are normally synthesized on RIBOSOMES.
