Solid phase synthetic methodology has been
used to prepare four peptides which form a system able to
monitor metal ion binding to conformationally different
peptides. The 19-residues oligopeptides containing histidine
residues in various positions of Ala or Gly sequences,
namely GGGGHGGGGHGGGGHGGGG, GGGHGGGHG
GGHGGGGGGG, AAAAHAAAAHAAAA-HAAAA, and
AAAHAAAHAAAHAAAAAAA have been synthesized
by Fmoc strategy and characterized by Fourier transform
infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) as well as electrospray ion
trap mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) and circular dichroism
(CD). The analysis of CD-spectra of the four peptides
revealed that the secondary structure depends much on the
amino acid sequence. Biological and medical consequences
of conformational changes of metal-bound peptides are
