A peptoid ribbon secondary structure.
Angewandte Chemie (International ed. in English)
2013; 52 (19): 5079-5084
Joining the fold: A series of peptoids, or oligomers of N-substituted glycines, adopt a novel secondary structure, designated the "peptoid ribbon". This fold was stable at short chain lengths and in a variety of solvents (both organic and aqueous), and arose from a primary sequence of peptoid monomers designed to enforce an alternating pattern of cis and trans main-chain amides.
