Abstract

The intramolecular bonding within proteins is of paramount importance to understand protein structure, folding, and stability with a direct impact on the accuracy of molecular modeling software. Hydrogen bonds are very common between amino acids and the most common of these is the N-H---O bond. It is not, however, the only type of hydrogen bond. Recent studies have suggested that N-H---N bonds exist and shouldn't be ignored. To investigate this, a comprehensive study of the ability of amino acids to form N-H---N bonds was performed via quantum chemical calculations. This presentation will discuss the results.
