Structural analysis of amylin and its analogs by NMR spectroscopy
Amylin is a 37 residue peptide hormone, which is believed to be involved in metabolic diseases, such as diabetes. The studies presented in this dissertation were initially carried out on rat and human amylin, and later concentrated on pramlintide, an agonist of human amylin. The conformational preferences of these peptides ...
