The solid-phase synthesis of the linear peptide II (Ac-KKYTVSI-SAA2-KKITVSI) containing the novel sugar amino acid SAA2 [(2S,3S,6R)-6-aminomethyl-3-hydroxytetrahydro-pyran-2-carboxylic acid] is described. Structural analysis by NMR and CD in 50% aqueous methanol indicates that peptide II adopts a β-hairpin conformation, as reported earlier for the non-modified peptide I (Ac-KKYTVSINGKKITVSI).
