Artificial supersecondary structures based on aromatic oligoamides

Hai-Yu Hu, Chuan-Feng Chen
Methods in Molecular Biology 2013, 932: 219-34
With an intelligent design of the monomers, considerable effort has so far focused on the creation of aromatic oligoamide foldamers which are able to mimic the secondary structures of biopolymers. Supersecondary structure is a growing set of known and classifiable protein folding patterns that provides an important organizational context to this complex endeavor. In this article, we highlight the design, chemical synthesis, and structural studies of artificial supersecondary structures based on aromatic oligoamide foldamers in recent years.
