Abstract

The conformational transitions of the heptapeptide Deltorphin (H-Tyr(1)-D-Met(2)-Phe(3)- His(4)-Leu(5)-Met(6)-ASp(7)-NH2) are predicted by using the detailed representation of the energy landscape. The visualization of the whole rugged landscape covering the entire energy and temperature ranges is found useful for the determination of the conformational transitions and the glassy behavior of peptides.
