Article title

Spatial relationships between the pharmacophores of endomorphin-2: a comparative study of stereoisomers

Languages of publication



The spatial relationships between the pharmacophore elements were investigated in the case of four different stereoisomeric forms of opioid tetrapeptide, endomorphin-2, taking into account the L-D and cis-trans isomerisms. On the basis of distances and angles measured between the pharmacophoric points, a comparative analysis of conformational distributions was performed, applying a variety of distance-angle maps. The results obtained by this theoretical study indicated that the stereoisomers of endomorphin-2 could be distinguished from one another, based on the comparative analysis of distance-angle maps. Nevertheless, it could be concluded that this method proved to be suitable to examine the effects of L-D and cis-trans isomerisms on the spatial relationships of the pharmacophores of tetrapeptide.
